Dear Miller County Elementary Families and Friends:


My name is Mr. James (Jamie) W. Ard, Jr., and I will be the Principal at Miller County Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year.  I am excited and thankful to be able serve the Miller County community!  I already know that there are amazing students, parents, and teachers here in Miller County, and I know that the sky's the limit for us!

Here at Miller County Elementary, we have adopted the following slogan and belief:  “Ordinary people united to achieve the extraordinary.”  That is a powerful statement when one thinks about it.  We are all just ordinary people, yet when we all get behind the same vision and goal, we can achieve extraordinary results.  Who would not want to be a part of an organization that truly believes in that statement and demonstrates it daily?

Do we have challenges ahead?  You bet that we do!  I believe that challenges are meant to be overcome, though.  I also believe that the challenges we face will make us stronger when we persevere together and experience the victory as a result.  

In conclusion, I am grateful to be a member of the Miller County Elementary family. I am looking forward to an outstanding school year, and I hope that you are as well!

Educationally yours,

Jamie Ard
