Miller School is having a fundraiser to help children with leukemia.  Your child came home with a donation box to return to school with any donations they collect. They were told any loose change, dollar bills, checks, or whatever they could collect would be helpful. The class to raise the most money wins an Olive Garden luncheon.

If you would rather donate online, please cut and paste the link below.

Thanks for your support!
