Classroom Volunteers Needed!

In the new year, we have a unique volunteer opportunity for parents to help out at Mills. We are starting a new program called FAMS: Families as Mills Supporters. FAMS invites adult volunteers to come to Mills and serve as very short-term teachers, covering classes for teachers while they’re in planning meetings. At this point, we are specifically seeking volunteers, working in pairs, who are willing to cover classrooms for several hours once a month.

We are currently seeking volunteers for the following 3 dates:

1. Wednesday, February 23rd, 8:00a to 11:00a (Arrive at 7:50a) - 2nd Grade
2. Wednesday, February 23rd, 12:10p to 3:10p (Arrive at noon) - 1st Grade
3. Friday, February 25th, 8:00a to 11:00a (Arrive at 7:50a) - Kindergarten
1. Wednesday, February 23rd, 8:00a to 11:00a (Arrive at 7:50a) - 2nd Grade
2. Wednesday, February 23rd, 12:10p to 3:10p (Arrive at noon) - 1st Grade
3. Friday, February 25th, 8:00a to 11:00a (Arrive at 7:50a) - Kindergarten

PTA Family Feud Fun

At the general membership PTA meeting we plan to play Family Feud! We're trying to add some fun to our PTA Zoom meetings, and this month, it'll be a Family Feud game with a handful of teachers/staff. To play Family Feud, however, we need survey responses from your Mountain Lions! If you're willing to help, please fill out the following survey for each of your students.

We look forward to seeing you on January 31st!

Roaring Readers Coaches Needed!

Sign up here: (More info below!)

For over 20 years, the beloved Roaring Readers volunteer program has been providing support for Mills students. The goal of Roaring Readers is to provide reading support for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who need extra support outside of the classroom in a small group setting, in addition to their general classroom instruction.

If you are a parent, community member, grandparent, college student, and/or retired professional, please consider volunteering to be a Roaring Readers coach! No teaching experience is necessary and we will train you.

Interested? Fun and interactive in person training sessions will be offered on campus Jan 21st at 8am (Coach for Kinder students) & 1:30pm (Coach for 1st grade students) and again on Jan 28th at 8am (Coach for Kinder students) & 1:30pm (Coach for 1st grade students).

Please reach out to Tiffany Hicks ( or Marcey French ( for more information about Roaring Readers. We hope that you will consider serving as a Roaring Readers volunteer coach!


Dirt Club! Sunday, January 30, 1-4 PM

Come out on the 30th for some campus landscaping fun! We'll be working on clearing more of the fence line along Escarpment, so bring your long sleeve shirt and work gloves if you have them.

If tangling with thorn-covered vines isn't your thing, we'll have other activities as well (painting, staining picnic tables, and general campus cleanup). There will be plenty of options for anyone who's interested.

We'll be there from 1-4, but come by for any amount of time during that window and we'll put you to work...we'll base out of the front parking lot, by the gate to the portables. Hope to see you there!
