MPE PTA Advocacy Committee




Our Advocacy Committee promotes Health & Wellness through the following events/programs and more:


Walk to school day


On International Walk/Bike-to-School Day in early October, one of the PTA health and wellness initiatives includes a day where all students can walk to school together starting from a couple of different locations in the neighborhood.






mills park maniacs marathon

The Mills Park Maniacs run 26.2 miles every spring, encouraging each other to get moving and get healthy! Families run 25 miles over a few weeks on their own. The final 1.2 miles are run on the Mills Park Campus.





Health & Wellness month

Our Health & Wellness month begins Jan. 29th and finishes off with our first ever Health & Wellness Fair on Saturday, Feb. 24th from 2-5PM.


If you would like to join in the planning for this program and event, please email audit@millsparkpta.com.

In the 2022-23 year, our PTA was awarded the National PTA's Healthy Minds grant. We had 3 presentations to our families: 

  1. Healthy Minds 101 - as part of our Family Fitness Fun Day
  2. Social Emotional Learning - given by our school counselors Nancy Stavrakakis and Teri Armstrong - after our 2nd General PTA Membership Meeting
  3. Building Resiliency - given by Dr. Rangel, Director of WCPSS Family Academy

The first two presentations were part of our Health & Wellness Month


Here are the slides from Dr. Rangel's presentation.
