Welcome to Mills Lawn School
Students Focus on Black History Month
Students at Mills Lawn School have been studying about the important contributions of African Americans during the month of February. We were lucky to have some amazing guest speakers and student contributions during our morning news program. Make sure to check out this link for some video highlights. 
2nd Graders Focus on Monarchs
Our second grade classes are gearing up to help support and save the Monarch butterfly population. Students discovered that Monarchs are facing tough times due to environmental conditions that are reducing their numbers. Second graders chose this topic for a year long study... 
Bulldogs Become Tigers!
Two of our fabulous Mills Lawn artists were honored after being chosen as the winners for the DGMS Tiger Safety Calendar contest. Deena Green (6th) and Hailey Roe (4th) had their art chosen out of over 3,500 entries. There were only twelve winners selected and two of them came from our school. 
We Are Gaga Over Our Gaga Pit!
Through PE class discussions, our 6th grade students identified a need for more exercise options on the 4th-6th grade playground. Mr. West empowered our students to undertake a PBL project to organize, design, and build a "Gaga Pit" for the playground. The students requested funding from Mr. Housh and then ordered materials to begin construction. 
Chef in the Classroom Promotes Health
Our food service company Sodexo brought a new program to our 1st and grade 2nd classrooms recently called "Chef in the Classroom". Chef James came to discuss healthy eating habits and food preparation with our students.  
YS Community Big Read
In order to foster greater community dialogue and shared understanding around PBL, the YS Schools will be facilitating a book study of Ron Berger's [An Ethic of Excellence] on three different dates at 7:00 pm. (10/22, 11/5, 11/19) The book study will take place in the Multipurpose Room at Antioch Midwest. 
Walk to School Day Was Huge!
Our annual “Walk/Bike to School” event was a great success! According to our data, 74% of our students (or 266) traveled on bike or foot that day. This is an incredible accomplishment and was due to the hard work of many partners and supporters. The Safe Routes to School Committee helped to plan and promote the event under the leadership of Chris Bongorno. 
Come to Classroom Meetings!
Classroom teachers are busy preparing for their annual classroom meetings! At Mills Lawn, we have individual classroom meetings with parents to ensure that teachers can properly introduce themselves. This is also a chance to discuss the curriculum, classroom culture, PBL, and student expectations. We hope that all parents attend in order to learn more about the school year and ask those burning questions.
