Miller Parent Teacher Organization

Miller PTO


The Miller Parent Teacher Organization (Miller PTO) supports maintaining a strong community at Miller by providing opportunities for students, staff, and parents to be involved at the school. The Miller PTO is open to ALL. Its mission is to provide support of student enrichment, financial assistance, and faculty appreciation through parental involvement to the school's community in support of a positive learning environment. Miller PTO general meetings take place every second Wednesday unless it conflicts with holidays or testing periods.

Please come to Miller Middle School and share in the JOY of learning and growing; there will be many opportunities throughout the year for parents to participate before, during, and after school. If you are interested in participating or getting more information, please contact Mary Hammond at miller.pto.durango@gmail.com


The 2019 Miller Games raised $17,523! 

On Friday, March 8, we held our school-wide fundraiser, the Miller Angel Games. The kids had a great morning of celebrating their fundraising efforts!  Due to the snowy fields and rainy weather, we creatively adapted to play all the games indoors.  Thanks to our business sponsors, parents, students, and community, we raised $17,523 for Miller Middle School. Thank you for your efforts to help make this fundraiser a success for our school!  Please note the local businesses listed below who contributed to our fundraising efforts.

Some details: 
Thank you to all parents who supported your student's participation in our Miller Games fundraiser.  We had 20% of students participate, with total envelope collections of $4,823 for Miller. 


Our corporate sponsors contributed $12,700 for Miller Middle School.  Sponsors are listed below. Please show support to our sponsors; we are so thankful for their contributions!

Money raised will be allocated according to the Miller PTO line item budget that we vote on at the May Miller PTO meeting. We also reserve funds for mini-grants submitted by teachers. Mini-grants are voted on every month during the Miller PTO meeting. 

A huge thank you to all 22 parents who volunteered their time towards Miller Games.  This is a big undertaking that started in January and ended with the Miller Games celebration.  Thanks also to everyone who brought oranges.  We are so appreciative of all your help! 

Thank you again!
