PTA Message

Dear Mills Families,

Happy Thanksgiving!


What a fabulous way to close the week before the Thanksgiving holiday. Over 500 Mills families joined their students for the Thanksgiving Feast during lunches – some even attended twice. Thank you to the best ever front office staff - Chris, Deric and Emily - for handling all of those RSVPs, processing pre-purchased lunch tickets, coordinating crowd-control in the front corridor, and directing all of us to the correct lunch line. Shout-out to our cafeteria staff and lunch monitors for making this feast possible.  We appreciate the efforts by all who made the lunch services run smoothly and enjoyable for everyone. We can forget how much fun the traditional Thanksgiving Sing-a-long to close out the week. We gotta love our Mills traditions.c


We're kicking off the Mills Spirit of Giving with Coats for Kids. Whether you are cleaning out the kid's closet or gearing up for cooler temperatures, please consider donating to Coats for Kids. The School Drive Competition starts tomorrow and runs through November 29th. Please drop a new or gently used coat in the specially marked bin in the main entrance. This is just one of the service projects that our Community Outreach committee handles. If you'd like to lend a helping hand or have a question, please contact Leslie Dippel. Stay tuned for more details regarding our partnership with families from Odom Elementary.
