Mills Elementary School was originally built in 1919 with four classrooms. Now, it has approximately 20 classrooms, a gymnasium, a large music room, computer lab and a completely renovated auditorium with a seating capacity of 801 seats. Major changes over the years have improved a very fine old building. We're proud to be home of the Mills Mustangs, grades Kindergarten through Five.
Acclaimed Portland-based rap artist Mic Crenshaw will take the stage with Mills Elementary students for two choral pieces at the school's Winter Concert, Dec. 12, at 6 p.m. An activist for human rights and justice, Crenshaw was named a Fields Artist Fellow of the Oregon Community Foundation. Get a sneak peek at the positive message he will bring to "This Little Light of Mine":
"Every breath is a blessing expressing a message
Through pressure and stress, achieving successes
Through love and commitment we share our best
The path can be difficult much like a test
Spiritual, physical, mental no less
Pass or fail, I prevail and press
Forward toward where I am destined"
