Mills Moments

Friday, February 25, 2022

Hello Mills Families,

Thank you for your cooperation in making last week's parent teacher conferences and remote learning day successful!

On Twosday, 2/22/22 at 2:22pm there was an 'all school dance' to have a little fun with the date. Teachers did various activities throughout the day related to the number two and it was truly a once in a lifetime kind of day.

Trimester 2 is now over! Report cards will be available for viewing in PowerSchool Thursday, March 2nd. See how to view your child's report card by clicking below.

Congratulations to our February Trojans of the Month!

STEAM Opportunity for Mills Students

We are excited to inform you of a new after school program available to John Mills School students in grades K-5. Thanks to a grant from the State, we are able to provide a weekly STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program for students. Through this program students will receive exposure to coding Sphero robots, 3D Printers, LEGO for Education products, and more! See attached letter for more information.
