Mills High School PTO
If you are attending Mills Got Talent and have NOT donated to the Annual Fund, please consider doing so today!
Mills High School & The Mills PTO present Mills Got Talent Mania 2023
Open to all Vikings, Their Families, & Neighbors!
Mills Mania has been a Vikings Tradition for many years, bringing past, present, and future Vikings together. Our student organizations sell food and drinks (to help fund their activities), we’ll have a photo booth, and a therapy animal farm for all to enjoy!
We will also have a random draw of fun prizes for families who have donated to the Annual Fund.
Very Special Guests
The Little Explorer Petting Zoo will bring in therapy animals to help us celebrate the Mills Got Talent Mania. Be sure to drop by the grassy area outside of the cafeteria exit towards the Student Parking Lot!
Find the Duck!
Rubber ducks will be hidden throughout Center Court - find one and bring it to the PTO Table for a FUN carnival prize!
Last year, we brought talent into Mills Mania and for the second year, will have Mills Got Talent Mania (MGTM)!
Although this event will be FREE of charge, we are highly encouraging all attendees to make an Annual Fund donation and/or request a corporate match (if you have not already done so).
We need some helping hands for MGTM (and prizes, if you have some to donate)! If you would like to join a fun crew, fill out the volunteer form today: Mills Got Talent Mania Volunteer Request Form
We hope to see you there!
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
You and your student get the chance to win some fun prizes!*
Please go to the Mills Mania Tab for more information!
The PTO asks families to pay both a PTO membership fee, and donate funds to the Annual Fund. People have asked - what's the difference between the two? This graphic shows the primary differences.
We know that some families are unable to help financially. But there are funding gaps that need to be filled, so we need all financially-able families to give what they can. Please visit our web page to pay your membership fee AND donate to the Annual Fund!
Please do not forget to submit your corporate match - every dollar counts!
If you have not made your Annual Fund Donation yet, please send it. EVERY dollar counts. To date, we have only reached 8% of our $140,000 goal.
If we do not come close to our goal, there are classroom programs and initiatives that may not get funded for this school year and next.
Your donation goes towards your student’s fundraising efforts! We will hold a raffle during the Mills Got Talent Mania on Friday, March 24, 2023, where students and families could win prizes!
If you work for a large corporation, chances are they offer a corporate match – please submit your corporate match for your Annual Fund Donation for this year. Most companies match 1:1, which means if you donate $500, your company will match an additional $500!
Enjoy your holiday break and we all look forward to a peaceful, happy, and productive 2023!
On behalf of the Mills PTO Board,
~ Karen Bettucchi, President
Thank you to all of the generous families and sponsors who donated to the Mills Annual Fund last year. With your support we raised just $50,000.
We need everyone's help again this year!
The PTO raises money for the Annual Fund, which supports our Wellness counselors and programs, science programs, student clubs, technology, teacher education, and more.
Please DONATE NOW and help us reach our $140,000 goal by the end of the 2022-2023 school year!
If your place of work has a corporate match, please be sure to submit one for your donation! Additionally, 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!
We are asking that every financially-able family give a minimum of $500. However, every gift counts, regardless of size. Together we are Viking Strong!

Our mission is to communicate by keeping our Mills Community informed, connect parents with other parents, teachers, and administration, collect funds 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, the school administration, and other Mills parent organizations 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, in order to better equip and assist the Mills community.
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 high school experience of our students.
