Greetings Mountain Lions!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our The Mills Silent Auction 2019, The auction brought in $4,164.50! Thank you to all the volunteers who obtained the donations we auctioned off and thank you to everyone who bought the items!

Remember to order your yearbook. Yearbooks are $25 each and can be ordered here. We will have 25-30 yearbooks to purchase ($30 each) at Mills during the last week of school, but please do not count on purchasing one at the school, because they sell out really fast. Purchase your yearbook online (for $25) to ensure that your child will have his/her 2018/2019 Mills Yearbook.

5th Grade Parents – If you have not yet completed your 5th Grade Graduation form and sent it to school, please do so as soon as possible. Find the form here: 5th Grade Graduation Form.

The students had a fantastic time taking part in the APEX Fun Run! Thank you to all the participants and the family members who cheered them on!

The Dino-Mite Book Fair is Here!

Screen Shot 2019-04-27 at 1.16.09 PM

Parents, the Spring Book Fair has arrived in the library. We will be open from 7:30am to 4pm Monday thru Thursday of this week and till noon on Friday, May 3rd. Our family night is Thursday night (May 2nd) from 5-8 pm. Our online shopping will run until May 9th

We have a new purchasing tool this year called eWallet. Parents can pre-load a set amount of money into an eWallet account for their students. When a student makes a purchase, the amount is deducted from their set eWallet amount. This method eliminates the need for the student to carry money/change to and from school. In addition, when the fair is over, any unused money will be released back in to your account. Look for this symbol on the book fair home page to find out more (
