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.
So, one week down and only about 39 more to go! This week was full of adjustments – early mornings, drop-off and pick-up options, bedtime routines and getting all the school-related events on your calendar. Speaking of calendars, check out the calendar on the millspta webpage which contains PTA and school happenings. This week we have a couple of items to mention about what’s coming up at Mills:
