PTA Message

Dear Mills Families,

What a fun evening – Movie, Food Truck, Concessions, and Silent Auction with the Mills Community. All the pieces came together is less than a month with Melissa Kirk on Event and Food Truck, Rena Alderson on Concessions and Jenny Chang on Auction. Yes, it takes a village for events to run – thank you to volunteers who helped with set-up, worked concessions, and pack up the auction displays and tables. Shout out to Mills families and staff who donated auction/concessions items or worked around our event to ensure it ran smoothly. Special recognition to volunteers who helped on event day – Ms. Almendarez and Pam Martin (and Ms. Kern) (activity table) and Amy Elizondo, Rhonda Lyon, Tracie DaSilva who made sure we were set to show the movie. We appreciate all of the families who came out to purchase food and concessions, enjoy the movie, and support the silent auction. Lastly, many thanks goes to the donors who generously provided the auction items.

Don’t forget this is Administrative Professional Appreciation Week. Thank you to the best ever front office staff, Chris, Deric, Emily, who keep Mills running like a well-oiled machine. Show them kudos the next time you walk through our doors.

The week of May 7th is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our Staff Appreciation Committee needs a little help from our families gathering items for daily treats. Please sign up here.  Also, let the 5th Grade Committee purchase and deliver flowers for you. See details for the daily themes and flower order form in separate blurb.


As of Friday, 70 yearbooks are still available for purchase. Order yours online for only $25 by May 10th (or while supplies last). All pre-orders will be distributed mid-May. Note: If any yearbooks are available after pre-order distribution, they will be sold for $30 cash/check.


I won’t list EVERY event scheduled between now and May 30th. Please check our online calendar on the mills webpage.
