Help with PTO Conference Meal

Calling all Parents and Cooks!

Parent Teacher Conferences will soon be here and the PTO is asking parents to help provide a meal for our teachers on the night of Tuesday, February 11th. These tend to be very long, and busy days for the teachers and the convenience of having a meal ready for them to eat throughout the evening is much appreciated! Please go to this sign up genius link:

There you can sign up to bring items on or before February 11th. Thank you for supporting our teachers during conferences.

Information about Millard's Upcoming Bond

On May 12th, 2020 Millard Public Schools is asking voters to consider a bond to address district repairs and maintenance. The average age of Millard’s schools is 38 years old. All together, the district’s buildings are valued at an estimated $700 million dollars.

To protect the community’s ongoing investment, the district is asking for a $125 million dollar bond. This would raise the levy approximately one cent. A cent of additional levy would cost an estimated $20 per year on a $200,000 home.

The funds would support projects in six areas: safety and security, major renovations, capital equipment replacements, energy efficiency projects, summer maintenance projects and furniture replacements. All 35 schools will be impacted by the bond.

Bond Informational Meeting:

Please join us on March 11th at 6:30pm at North Middle School in the Multipurpose room to learn more about the Bond that will be voted on in May.
