Mills Moments

Friday, February 11, 2022

Hello Mills Families,

We had a successful remote learning day last week with all the snow. Your feedback was very much appreciated and celebrated with teachers and staff.


With Valentine's Day being Monday, February 14th, we remind you that anything brought to be shared at school should be store bought and individually wrapped.


Spring conferences will be held next week on Wednesday, February 16th and Thursday, February 17th from 3:00pm-7:00pm. These conferences will be virtual, 15 minutes, and scheduled using the same platform we used in the fall. Selection for conferences will remain open through February 15th at 3pm. Directions to sign up can be found here.


See below for the wonderful work of our PTA, some first grade highlights, and additional information!
