Millville School Update


Water Bottles

Please continue to send a bottle of water to school with your child everyday, particularly as the weather starts to warm up. It would be preferable to send a refillable, reusable water bottle rather than a disposable bottle. Students can fill up their bottles in the classrooms but the shared faucets throughout the school are not available for use.


Dress Code

As we have had more pressing topics to focus on this year, we have not been as stringent regarding the dress code; however, we do expect students to comply with the dress code every day. The entire dress code is on the school website, but key points to keep in mind include the following:

  • Leggings are not to be worn as pants unless worn with a tunic, top or shorts that comes to 4” above the knee.

  • Shorts can be no shorter than 4” above the knee.

  • Dresses/skirts must fall no shorter than 3” above the knee.

  • The dress code applies to all students: boys and girls, TK-8th grade.

California School Dashboard

Teachers use more than just test scores to determine how well a student is doing, because test scores alone don’t tell the whole story. And the same is true for schools – test scores are only part of a bigger picture of school success. That’s why the California School Dashboard contains a range of easy-to-use, color-coded gauges designed to give families a complete picture of a school or district. The Dashboard includes meaningful data on graduation rates, college/career readiness, attendance, English learner progress, suspensions and more. The state has created several videos – translated into Spanish – to help you learn about the Dashboard and how to use it. Find them on the California Department of Education’s YouTube channel!

The Mission of Millville Elementary School is to instill in our students an enthusiasm for learning.

To achieve this we will:

  • Provide our students with a high quality education;

  • Offer all students an introduction to the arts;

  • Foster a positive work ethic;

  • Create an environment of respect for one another, and

  • Spark an attitude of inquiry

...with the intent to guide our students to becoming productive, responsible citizens.

Our purpose is to develop students who are lifelong learners by providing quality, standards-based education through a caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community.

About Millville Elementary School

Founded in 1856, Millville Elementary School District is a firmly established and integral member of the small, rural ranching community of Millville. Located just 15 miles east of Redding, Millville School has a current enrollment of approximately 250 students, kindergarten through 8th grade. Our small school atmosphere allows us to get to know every student and to provide an education that caters to each students’ individual needs.

At Millville School, our purpose is to develop a love of learning in our students by providing a high-quality, standards-based education that is enhanced by arts, music, clubs and sports. We strive to create an educational environment that provides the basis for participation in a democratic society by promoting critical thinking, developing a sense of responsibility and self esteem, encouraging independence of opinion and action, and nurturing respect for others.

Providing a quality and comprehensive education for our students is only achievable through the efforts of our professional and caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community. It is through the combined efforts of our staff and community, on behalf of our students, that Millville School truly is “A Great Place to Learn”.
