PTO General Meeting

Monday, October 17 at 7pm

Do you wish you knew what life AFTER high school could look like for your student?

The Mills PTO hosted its annual Conversations with Former High School Students on Monday, October 17 at 7pm where you can get a glimpse of life after Mills!

We had some guest speakers (most are former Mills High School students) who answered some pre-submitted questions.

Watch the recording!

Join us for our first PTO meeting of the school year!

9/19/2022 Monday 7pm

This is the first school year of “normalcy” for many of our students in the last two years since we all went into lock down in March 2020. Many students may be feeling really difficult emotions right now and you may not not how to help them.

Our special guest, Staysha Veal, from our Wellness Counseling Department, will join us to let us know what resources are available for students who are feeling anxiety, stress, or depression.

We hope this will be an introduction to a social emotional series we’d like to host throughout the school year.
