Last Wednesday, the day of the Walkathon, was a sight to behold. Hundreds of happy Mill Hill students and their teachers walking around the school, showing off their terrific banners, dancing with the Hawk, and giggling with delight as Mr. Chase very graciously submitted to a pie in the face!
This year’s campaign raised a huge amount of money–$29,528.14. This shows great generosity. Thank you Mill Hill students, and the friends and family who supported their fundraising efforts. The PTA is so thankful. In fact, Mr. Chase was so pleased with the students’ efforts that he awarded the entire school a Pajama Day!
