PTA Message

Dear Mills Community,

Let me start by saying that it was so amazing to see all of the science fair projects lining the hallways of Mills last week. It is great to see all of the different experiments and exhibits. The array of project topics reflects the diversity of our Mills Community. What makes it exciting is how we all blend together to create one Mills although we may be from other countries, speak different native languages, or have different traditions. This is what Mills Around the World celebrates.

This week I’d like to give a huge shout out to our Communications team for keeping Mills families informed. They are a group of parents who support several platforms for Communication and work directly with the PTA event coordinators as well as Mills teachers, other Bowie Vertical Team school leaders, and after-school activity directors.
