The Millis High School Book Group met to discuss their reading choices last Monday at the Millis Public Library. A small group came together to discuss the various titles and enjoy pizza, as well.
On Friday, November 8th, the Millis Middle/High School hosted “Team Hoyt”. This father-son team began running marathons in 1977, with Dick Hoyt pushing his son, Rick, in a wheelchair.

Welcome students and staff! We are anxious to have everyone come visit the library, check out our latest books, and "try a Nook"! We'll be starting with library visits from Study Halls on September 11th. Book Groups and Clubs will start later on in September, but watch for "sign-ups" soon!
Thanks to a group of dedicated and energic middle school students, the first "Millis Mohawk Magazine" arrived in April. A literary magazine with selections from eleven students in grades 5-8, this booklet represents weeks of writing, editing and meeting in the library. The group, under the direction of Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Divver, was formed from the students interest in writing. They have been excited about this and we are very proud of all their efforts!
