Pirate booty spirit night - October 19th 5:30-7pm

A great big thank you to all those who turned out for our Pirate Booty Spirit Night last night, especially the volunteers.  The event was a huge success, and we hope you all had a good time.  It was so wonderful to see friends reuniting and families gathering.  We were so pleased to hold an event that we hope everyone felt safe attending.  We want virtual students to know that they are still an important part of this school and to feel included.  We hope to see everyone again on Saturday, even if it's just for the donuts and drinks.  We have a restock order of books on the way.  If we are out of any book, go ahead and order it at the register.  We will deliver those books to the classrooms when they come in.  The advantage of this is NO tax or shipping charges!  Thank you again for your amazing support of Mills Park and the PTA.

Bookaneer Breakfast (aka doughnuts with grownups) - October 23rd 9-11 aM


What a great weekend!  We could not have asked for better weather for our final outdoor book fair event and donuts with grownups.  I hope you all had as much fun as I did.  A huge thank you to everyone who came out to shop, to volunteer, or just to say hi to Millie!  We were so happy to see you all.  Your support was phenomenal. 


If you missed the fair, you can still shop online here until October 31st.  Books make the best gifts, and I know I got a head start on my holiday shopping this week.  Thank you again.  This year was unlike any other but still a huge success.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I'd love your feedback... I'm already looking forward to next year's fair!
