The district has prepared a series of videos to explain the need for the building projects that have been proposed. Please click below to see the first of these videos. We invite the public to join in support of these projects as we endeavor to build these facilities together!
On November 21st the residents of Millard County will vote on a bond proposing the use of general obligation bonds to pay for a $47.5 million dollar building project for a new Millard High School academic building, with additions at Fillmore Elementary School and the Delta Technical Center. A voter information pamphlet has been prepared and will be mailed to all residents in the coming days. A public meeting was held last week in which no opposition to the bond was presented. Though it must be stated in these informational statements the cost of these projects and how they could impact taxes, the board has made it clear that these projects will be done with existing revenues and will not ask for increases to the public. The question on the bond will be whether to fund these projects with general obligation bonds, which come with more favorable interest rates and save the school district approximately $4.5 million dollars over the life of the bonds. If the public votes to not use the general obligation bonds the board will continue to use lease revenue bonds, which were used to pay for Delta High School, at the higher interest rate with the subsequent greater cost to the district. In either case, the public will not see an increase in tax rates for these projects.

The Philosophy of Mrs. Sheriff
All children are unique. They come from different cultures, home environments, and circumstances. Additionally, all children are unique in the way they learn and process information. I feel it is crucial to recognize the whole child. I do this by providing a stimulating educational environment where they can grow socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally. It is my desire to establish the type of atmosphere where students can find success and reach their full potential. I believe that students should love coming to school. School is a place where everyone should feel connected and safe. I want students to be comfortable sharing ideas and taking risks.
Last but certainly not least, school should be fun. I have witnessed student learning take place through music, art, and activities. I celebrate success, and I find it important to recognize the positive.
During the school year, I have the privilege of spending approximately 1,327 hours with students. During these hours, I have the opportunity to make a significant impact on each student I serve. Every minute matters.

We will do this by learning and growing each day and always giving our best effort. Fillmore Elementary School implements positive behavioral supports to assist students with behavior and academic learning. We want our school to be a safe, fun, and friendly place to be.
