This PTO General Meeting featured a presentation and question and answer session regarding college applications and submitting the now-required FAFSA by our very own school counselors Mr. Fong, Ms. Tijero, and Principal Duszynski. If you didn't know, all seniors are now required by law to complete the FAFSA. December 9th is the deadline!

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,

Purpose

Our Mission

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.
