Mills is a place where friendship and memories are made. During school socials (dances), field trips, activities; canned food drive to relay for life, the connection from school and community is very important. The foundation that students develop in middle school is key to success of their future. Mills is a beacon of positive interaction, supportive adult relationships and a connection to Rancho Cordova. Today’s students are not different; they have completed another mile stone in their future in preparation for a better and brighter world. The memories that students make with teachers, staff and friends will last you a life time. I hope you remember that you have the power to make a positive difference at home, at school, in our community, our state, our country and our world.
Our theme this year was, “Open Your Mind, Be Kind,” students will learn that hard work, positive attitude and perseverance can lead to completing dreams for the future. I’ve been so impressed with the level of inspiration and dedication that the staff at Mills has for our students and our community that I’ve come to realize how valuable each person is to our Mustang Family. Students have taught us as well as learned from us, our common thread has been the unity that we have formed as a community of learners. Our students are the future of our community and from my perspective Rancho Cordova has an awesome bright future. Our student leaders today will be our leaders tomorrow.
When you look back at your middle school years, I want you to remember the connections you have developed with your peers, the staff and the community.
I’m proud to be the principal of Mills! But most of all I’m proud to be a member of the Mustang Family.
