Dear Mills families,
As we get into fall, we welcome the cooler weather, football, and a lot of fun activities happening around the school! Mills PTA would like to thank each of you who takes the time to be involved with our organization and contributes to making our school exceptional! I have been a part of Mills PTA for 4 years now, and each year, I am still amazed at all we are able to accomplish! Mills has such a wonderful staff of teachers and administration, and we are able to show our appreciation and support in so many ways throughout the year! It’s an honor to get to work with each and every one of you, and every volunteer here at Mills makes a difference! So, if you haven’t heard it today, THANK YOU!
I hope everyone made it out to the Food Truck Family Fun Night that happened Friday evening right here at Mills. What started out as a simple book fair kickoff and family movie night in the cafeteria with popcorn concessions… turned into to be much bigger project when an area business approached Denise Veselka about a similar event on the same night – so we just incorporated the ideas. Thank you Denise Guerra for coordinating this family engagement event with Google Fiber, Modern Woodmen, Velofix Austin Bike Repair, and HelloNabr who gathered food trucks including Red White and Que, Stony’s Pizza and Austin Scoops. Remember, deadline to sign up for Google Fiber is October 13th.
Speaking of events, there are a few upcoming items worth remembering.

If you are looking for a way to contribute to Mills, we would be thrilled to have you on our team. We already have ALL of our Committee Chairs filled… so now we are looking for committee members. Find out more about what the PTA does on the ‘About PTA’ tab and search the list of committees (many with simple one-time tasks that could benefit from your talents). Volunteering a few hours for an event can help turn good into great and it's a small effort that lasts
