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. For example: Student Name is John Smith. ID#3212457. DOB: January 1, 2020 User name: 3212457 Password: js010120 If you have any questions or need additional assistance please feel free to contact Mills School Registrar, Angela Nichols,via email at anichols7097@pcssd.org or by calling 501-234-5266; your call will be returned as promptly as possible.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL Hello Mighty Mills Comets Students, I would never have imagined that our 2019-2020 school year would take a turn such as this. These last three weeks have truly been a learning curve for everyone. I am hoping and praying you and our families are all doing well. Remember your school family misses you and are here for you. As we move forward using our AMI packets, innovative technology, and teacher’s creative ways to stay in contact with you, please be patient as we travel through this situation together. This is all new for everyone. We will take this opportunity as learning together to ensure learning is still taking place. You teachers and administrations are working daily just like you are by attending online professional development, meeting and planning to provide you with continuous rigorous instruction in a different format. Remember to read at least for twenty minutes a day and do not forget to record what you read. We are working on setting up face to face meetings via Google hangout in order to assist and just to see everyone smiling faces. Lastly, if no one has told you today that they love you, I do. I miss all of you very much. I want you to stay safe and healthy. Your Principal, Dr. E. Lisa Watson
