Good afternoon Mills High Parents and Guardians. My name is Dr. Carlethia Houston, and I'm the Graduation Coach and Parent Liaison. One focus of my job is to ensure that students grades 9 through 12 are obtaining on time credits in preparation for graduation. Due to the high number of failing grades for the semester, Mills High has implemented an academic intervention where students have the opportunity to make up any missed or failing work that will allow them to obtain a passing grade for the semester. The students have received this information along with the contract in their emails. First, the student must contact the teacher of the class where a failing semester grade was received and ask for the work necessary to receive a passing grade. Second, students must complete that work and turn it in to the teacher. This intervention is available to all students, grades nine through 12, with a focus on seniors trying to meet on time graduation requirements. Please check the school’s website, under NEWS for a copy of the letter that was sent to students and the contract that students are asked to sign. The final date for students to turn in this makeup work is Friday, January 29, 2021. Please help us help your child do what is necessary to obtain passing grades. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at 501-234-5491 or at chouston@pcssd.org. Thank you.

Our talented students recreate 4 radio episodes from the glory days of radio programs, before the age of television. This is a free presentation for all! Instead of charging for virtual passes, we want to keep this presentation up for you to see and hear often. We instead ask that you donate to our DonorsChoose fundraiser. https://www.donorschoose.org/project/... We have a multi-million dollar theatre facility at our school, but no industrial tools to make the sets we need for shows worthy of our students' full potential. We have raised over 50% so far, but if we do not meet our goal by January 27th, we lose every dollar donated so far. When our goal is met, and conditions are safe for us to return to the stage, we promise to do so in high fashion.

Parents/Guardians This is a friendly reminder to please make sure you pre-register your student for the 2020-2021 school year. Pre-registration allows us to gage how many students we can expect for the following school year in order to determine several key factors such as how many teachers are needed. If you have not already done so please visit the district’s website at www.pcssd.org and follow the path EXPLORE-Families-Parent Resources-Registration. Since your child is already an existing student within the district you would need to make sure you click on the Returning Student Registration Manual. Once you click on the link for the registration portal it will ask you to enter your user name and password. The default user name is Student ID# and the password is First Name and Last name initials plus your child’s 6 digit date of birth. If you have any questions or need additional assistance please feel free to contact our Registrar, Angela Nichols,via email at anichols7097@pcssd.org or by calling 501-234-5266.
