Mills Adventures Are Here!

Mills Adventures are now available for purchase and bid on our PTA website. Mills Adventures are fun, mostly after school experiences, for students who want to spend more time with staff and classmates. There are grade level opportunities for purchase, and our administrative team has several items up for bid!

A few notes:
1. Grade level fun is for all students in the specified grade but only for students in that grade.
2. The bidding options and school tour and marquee design are open to students in any grade!
3. We hope to add a few more options in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
4. The PTA is also collecting donations as part of the payment process. If you’re up for adding an additional donation for the PTA to use to support Mills and it’s staff, we will be so thankful!

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

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!
