Mills High School PTO 

The Mills High School PTO would like to wish our community a prosperous New Year!

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. 

 

Donate TODAY!

 

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,

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!

With gratitude,
