John Mills Construction Update!  This summer John Mills School has been undergoing some great changes.  The construction crew of ICI has been working hard to create a new secure front entrance, main office and elevator.  Due to the construction, our front entrance will closed until late Fall/early Winter.  In the meantime, we will be using Door 5, on 76th Court, as our temporary main entrance.  When coming to the building, please use the Door 5 entrance.  We are looking forward to a great school year and seeing all of our students, families and staff!

REGISTRATION FOR NEW STUDENTS -   We are registering new students at the Early Childhood Center.  Hours - 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  Questions - email Mrs. Hewak at hewakm@epcusd401.org or call 708-583-6275.   Beginning Monday, August 3, registration will be back at John Mills School, entrance on 76th Court - Door 5,  8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
