Principal's Message

Hello to the FAMMS Community,

My name is Mark Shaw, I have the honor, and great privilege to serve as Miller’s principal.  I have served the Miller community for eleven school seasons as the Assistant Principal and Principal.  I have worked at other amazing RUSD middle schools as Assistant Principal and Program Specialist for the past nineteen school seasons.  Prior to administrative service, I was a RUSD classroom teacher at the high school level for seven years and I had two years teaching internationally in Japan.  All of these experiences, as well as many others, have strengthened my focus and determination to support our children’s academic and emotional well-being.

During my tenure at FAMMS I have had the opportunity to work alongside an amazing group of teachers and support staff, who are dedicated and work very hard to provide students with a strong learning experience, a place to belong, and an opportunity to thrive.  The FAMMS culture is characterized by our dedication to create a C4 learning environment for all who participate at Miller.  The C4 learner is characterized as a person who is Caring, Collaborative, Connected, and Committed to the FAMMS community.  We often refer to this caring theme as the "Miller Magic." Together, the FAMMS community strives to assist our students with meeting two school-wide goals: meeting content area standards and engaging in two or more extra-curricular activities.

This year FAMMS will celebrate 14 years of amazing service to the community.  I often tell our students that Miller is a great school, not because of the beautiful campus, but for the simple reason that they and their families attend here. A school is great when it is filled with great people! I want to thank you all for choosing Frank Augustus Miller Middle School as your school and for trusting our incredible staff to educate your kids! We are honored by your choice in Miller and your trust in us!

As we thrive through the 2023-2024 school season, we will work together as a school community to keep our community healthy, safe, valued, and engaged in powerful teaching and learning. We will make every effort to keep our promises to our students!

Thank you and welcome to the Miller Magic!

Mark Shaw, Principal
