Dear Mills families,
It's been a busy couple of weeks for students, teachers, and parents alike. We enjoyed meeting all the families who stopped by the PTA table, shopped for Spirit Wear, and attended any of the school events. Thank you to all the parent volunteers for doing the behind-the-scenes work that makes this all possible – and to those who have shown interest in giving a helping hand in the classroom, our wonderful library, Roaring Readers, and PTA.
Speaking of events, there are a few upcoming items worth remembering.

This is your chance to discuss the budget and goals for the 2016-2017 school year. All paid members will have the opportunity to vote on the proposed budget. If you're not already a PTA member, you may even join at the meeting! Submit dues by September 30th to be eligible to receive a cool insulated tote! There is power in numbers, and our numbers count! Our PTA runs because of our amazing parent and teacher volunteers who dedicate their time and resources to Mills Elementary.
