Welcome to the Mills PTA Website

The Mills PTA website is updated weekly with current information and events around Mills. The goal is to have the Mills PTA website be a single source of information to our Mills families.

PTA Message

Dear Mills supporters:

Welcome back to school! I expect that all of us have kids at home who will find it hard to sleep tonight, hopefully with the excitement of looking forward to tomorrow’s start of the school year.

I have a lot of items to mention, so I will do my best to be quick. Let’s start with PTA communications, PTA membership, upcoming meetings, and open PTA Board positions, and then move on to upcoming events and activities.

PTA Newsletter, Online Weekly Folder, and Online Calendar
The best way to stay informed throughout the school year is by following our weekly Mills Messenger newsletter.

Every week you will also get an email to access the Online Weekly Folder for classroom, club and school news. Mark your calendars with important dates, and be sure to review school policies on things like lunch, visiting classrooms, volunteering and school safety.

You may also keep track of upcoming school activities on our PTA school calendar: http://millspta.org/newsite/index.php/school-news/school-calendar.html

Joining PTA
Joining the Mills PTA is only $8/member, and does a lot of good for you and the school. A strong PTA makes it possible for us to support student and faculty programs, invest in school equipment and services, and provide activities to enrich our campus life. Your membership also makes you eligible to vote on PTA issues at our membership meetings, and makes you eligible to serve on the PTA Board.

To join, you may put an envelope with payment (exact cash or a check payable to Mills PTA) in the front office's PTA box or send the envelope in to your child’s teacher. You may also join online at https://www.mypaynetapps.com/pay.php?mip=361412402358578461219499807.

Upcoming PTA Meetings
Our first general membership meeting will take place on September 29 at 7 p.m. at the Mills Cafeteria.

Open PTA Board Positions
We have several open voting positions on our PTA Board this year. If you can give two or three hours a month to make Mills Elementary an even better school, we’d love to have you join us.

The open positions are:


  • Bylaws (helps the Board maintain and observe the local PTA’s bylaws)
  • Community Outreach (engage students in community service activities)
  • GLC-PreK (“grade level coordinator” - helps with grade events/communication)
  • GLC Special Areas and PPCD (same as above for the areas in question)
  • Grant Researcher (explore grant opportunities for Mills PTA and school)
  • Holidays around the World (coordinates our annual Holidays event)
  • Parent Education (bring in speakers and share resources on parenting topics)
  • Ways and Means (supports school fundraising activities)
