CAASPP Testing Schedule

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The primary purpose of the CAASPP assessment system is to assist teachers, administrators, and pupils and their parents by promoting high-quality teaching and learning through the use of a variety of assessment approaches and item types.  This includes the new Smarter Balanced Assessment field tests which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We will administer these assessments to students in Grades 10 and 11 during the month of April when we return from Spring Break.  Please see the detailed testing schedule below.

Common Core State Standards

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards. Please click on the links below for more information about the standards. You can also visit the California Department of Education website to read more about the standards and the CCSS-related activities taking place in California.

The 3rd Annual Competition for the Viking Iron Chef was held in the Culinary Arts Department on Thursday.  The room was filled with excitement and enthusiasm as five highly qualified teams went head - to- head striving to win the trophy.  


Highlights include:

  • Each team was given a basket with carrots, avocado, kale, jasmine rice, strawberries and potato chips with the protein of boneless chicken breast and the secret ingredient...... chocolate.  
  • The “A Team” created an incredible chicken taco laced with chocolate
  • “Cookin Mamas” did an amazing chocolate dessert
  • The “APeeling Cuisine” went the way of a chicken curry with chocolate mousse 
  • The “Grill em All” presented an outstanding creative chicken cooked in parchment paper
  • “The Sweeties” incorporated potato chips into their chicken entree with a Princess Chocolate Custard dessert


The teamwork and enjoyment of cooking together with students and staff was electrifying!! The judges rated and tasted and declared the Sweeties to be the 2014 Viking Iron Chefs!! Congratulations to all!!



Annual Fund 2013-14

Please help us Make Mills Magnificent!  We are kicking off our Annual Fund Drive this week and request that families contribute $500 for each student to this important fundraising effort.  

In the past, we have used Annual Fund donations to purchase new computer labs, fund Academic Counseling and the after school tutoring program, renew our School Loop contract, and made a number of additional teaching materials and technologies available for use in the classroom.  With your generous donations, we will be able to continue funding these programs and look to the future by providing teachers and students opportunities to pilot new classroom technologies.

Contributions to the Mills Annual Fund can be made in the main office or through your student's 4th period class as part of the Mills Mania Annual Fund Drive.  Please see the attached documents for more details!
