Mills Moments

Friday, January 28, 2022

Hello Mills Families,

January has come and gone. The 100th day of school is already this Monday the 31st!


Thank you to all the parents that attended our safety presentation last Thursday at Elm Middle School. We have attached the presentation here for those that were not able to attend.


We hope those who participated in our Preschool for All Virtual Winter Family Event Wednesday evening enjoyed themselves and the activities. Thank you to our Pre-K team for planning and preparing!


In regards to recess and the cold weather, if the temperature is 20 degrees or above, students will go outside for recess. Otherwise, they will have indoor recess in the classroom. Teachers may take a 5-10 minute mask break walk outside with classes. Please be sure your child is appropriately dressed for cold weather!

Lost and Found

Many lost items have accumulated in the Lost and Found. There are now tables set up in the gym, sorted for all to view and take what is theirs during the Book Fair next week.

Spirit Wear

Order your school spirit wear here! All items ordered will be delivered to the school and distributed to student in March.

5Essentials Survey

We appreciate the support, encouragement, and understanding as we continue to find ways to navigate the pandemic and provide the best education experience for your student(s). Here is a link to a parent survey called the 5Essentials. We encourage you to take the time to complete the survey and provide meaningful feedback to the administration and teachers for continuous improvement opportunities. Thank you in advance for your time and participation.

Yearbook Orders

Yearbooks are $15 this year and the deadline for ordering is 3/31/22. Order your 2021-2022 yearbook here.

Cafeteria Menu

The monthly menu for breakfast and lunch can always be found here. The menu is subject to change based on the availability of products each day.

Seeking Substitute Teachers

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about becoming a substitute teacher in District 401, please share this information with him/her. Start your day with a purpose and join our team.
