National PTA Press Release on 2015-2017 National PTA Schools of Excellence

The Mill Hill PTA initially explored participation in the School of Excellence program as an important extension of its existing wonderful PTA initiatives, and as a way to leverage its talented and enthusiastic staff and parent community to bring to life additional family-centric programs which would positively impact Mill Hill kids. The School of Excellence Committee later identified and launched exciting new programs to strengthen the family-school partnership at Mill Hill including: “One Book, One School”, IXL.com Math Support, the Homework Club and the Mill Hill Suggestion Box. The Committee also helped to expand existing Mill Hill programs such as Mr. Smith’s “Read Aloud” program, our Spring Book Swap and Mr. Chase’s Principal Coffees.

The School of Excellence Committee, in collaboration with Mill Hill staff and parent community, looks forward to building on these programs in the future and identifying additional opportunities to support our kids and our community.
