Mission Statement

The mission of Roger Q. Mills Elementary School is to provide a quality education for ALL students that supports academic achievement, promotes integrity, builds healthy self-esteem, embraces intrinsic motivation, and encourages successful study habits. Our goal is to develop college-ready students who will be contributing successors in our communities and beyond.

Library Spotlight

Accelerated Reader/Earning by Learning 1,000 Quiz Challenge

Along with the points our students have been earning, if collectively the campus passes 1,000 quizzes between January 11-March 25, which is the EBL designated 11 weeks spring session, the student who earned the most POINTS during that time period will win a bike. (They will also be using their points to buy their prizes during the six week awards ceremony.)

AR--Nuts & Bolts

RLA teachers have administrator rights to their classes--by logging in you can reset locked out students, deleted quizzes, review reports, etc. (I believe that any students locked out will automatically be reset by the system the following day.)

AR can be accessed through the Mills homepage (look for the Renaissance place logo.) log-ins were set to be first initial, last name, then mills1 as the default password.
