It is not too late to contribute to the Annual Fund. All fundraising goes directly to support our students and programs at Mills!

Go to https://millsannualfund.dojiggy.io/2021 and donate to the Annual Fund today and still qualify for Mills Spirit wear! Thank you for your support and generosity.

Annual Fund

With just six weeks to go we are only 20% of the way to our $100,000 Annual Fund goal. This Valentine's Day, share the love by donating today and supporting our kids, teachers, and staff that make Mills High School!

As many of you know, the school district’s annual operating budget allocation for Mills does not fully cover the costs of all that Mills needs each year. The Mills Annual Fund was created to bridge that funding gap ensuring as a community that we do all we can to support our children’s learning experience. This year we are focused on supporting our students' and their mental health, while helping them to bridge the COVID-19 gap with technology, programming, and other supports.

The Annual Fund supports a wide variety of school needs such as Chromebooks, scientific calculators, science lab materials, teacher education, student counseling, and clubs, just to name a few.

If you, your employer, or your business can donate your time, presence, items, gift certificates, gift baskets or swag to the raffle, please sign up here!

These are difficult times for so many of us, but if you are able, please support the Mills Annual Fund. Every gift counts, regardless of size, and it would be an excellent example of solidarity and support to reach 100 percent participation! Together we are Viking Strong!

With gratitude,

Nazneen Ashroff, PTO Annual Fund Chair (annualfund@millshspto.org)

Purpose

Our Mission

Our mission is to communicate by keeping our Mills community informed, connect parents with other parents, teachers, and administration, collect funding to support the Mills Annual Fund and PTO programs, and celebrate our students, teachers, staff, and administrators.

Who We Are

We are a dedicated group of parent volunteers, teachers, and staff who work directly with Principal Duszynski & administration to support the needs of our school.

What We Do

Your $50 membership and generous donation of time allow our PTO to:

  • Provide parent volunteers & services to teachers, staff and students of Mills High School.

  • Curate & send parent e-news coverage of important dates, events, activities, and relevant news to Mills.

  • Educate & inform parents and the community on discussion topics, i.e. colleges, mental health, student activities/events, to better equip and assist the Mills community at Mills High School.

  • Spearhead the Annual Fund campaign to provide much needed supplemental funding which directly benefits our students. More information will be coming your way in September on how the Annual Fund helps to elevate the enriching educational experience for which Mills is known.

Senior Grad Night

Hello Mills Class of 2022 Families,

Believe it or not, our kids are seniors and will be graduating from Mills in four short months! We are thrilled to be able to celebrate them all and bring the tradition of a "Grad Night" trip back this year. Our Grad Night Committee surveyed the senior class and over 90% of the students who responded selected Universal Studios as their Grad Night destination of choice!

The registration window has closed, please contact millshsgradnight22@gmail.com if you have any questions.
