School Play

Mills Lawn believes in engaging its students in activities, which involve every student in the school. These activities help to create a spirit of cooperation and common purpose, and give students the opportunity to work together, regardless of age or grade.

All-school activities, such as our Lost in the 50's,  Schoolhouse Rock Live!, Aladdin, and On Broadway  musical productions,  and our 50th Anniversary Celebration, and Looking In, Looking Out, are some of our biggest efforts. Guest speakers, musicians, school-wide author studies, and other assemblies are some other examples.

Student Council

The Student Council plays a very important role in every school. They help share students’ ideas, interests, and concerns with the teachers and principal. They help the students raise funds for school wide projects. They assist the community when they are in need of aid. Being on Student Council is something that will help our students become responsible and active members of the community.
