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.
Dear Mills community:
I am feeling so many emotions as I write this final PTA message, so bitter sweet…these last six years have been amazing volunteering at Mills and with the PTA. Like many, as I take time to reflect on my son Nic’s own triumphs and the many accomplishments of the PTA, other parents, students, and faculty are also reflecting on their great victories and conquest at Mills. All treasured memories, because that is what Mills is…a treasure.
As some of us on the PTA say good-bye to a place that has meant so much to us, on their behalf I’d like to express our gratitude for the tireless help throughout the last year from the Mills community. You donated your time, talents and money to help the PTA achieve so much this year! We focused on promoting family, community involvement and enriching our children’s education. We emphasized on volunteerism and providing goods and services at little or no cost to Mills families. Success is an understatement in what you have helped achieve this year and we could not be happier with the outcome. In addition to the many events sponsored and hosted by the PTA, this year the membership was able to purchase items for Mills such as reading, social studies and science curriculum, iPad cases, classroom printers, equipment for computer lab, water hog mats for school, recess equipment, a microscope, safety patrol items, and book collections for each grade level. Plus, we were able to assist teachers with supplies, send a few of them to training and most recently, an author visit too. The PTA does so much more, and too little time to mention all, but I highly recommend being a part of the PTA family, and if you’re interested be sure to come to our final General Meeting next Tuesday, May 31st.
5th Grade Parents!! It’s not too late to order a Class of 2016 DVD for your child! Download the following form and send in payment on Tuesday, May 31st. We cannot guarantee extras will be made.

Finally, I am so grateful for the opportunity to be associated with a community (which includes everyone at Mills from the students to the staff to the parents) that so exemplifies caring and values the diversity and differences that makes us all so special. Thank you for the trust you have had in me that have impacted your precious children and Mills Elementary. It has truly been my honor and privilege to work with all of you and your children. I will miss you greatly.
Proud 5th Grade Mountain Lion Mom,
