The Adopt-A-Class program provides area businesses with the opportunity to volunteer in the classrooms of New York Mills School. 

New York Mills Elementary is geared up to kick off the Adopt-A-Class program for the 2022-2023 school year. 

The goal is to build relationships between NY Mills businesses, students, teachers, and the community. Adopt-A-Class is meant to provide opportunities for students to display art/classroom work for the NY Mills community members to view, for community employees to come into the classrooms and possibly a chance for a field trip to the adoptive business.  

Organizers for the program said it is a great way to get to know students and businesses in the community better and showcase many of the wonderful things that are happening in NY Mills School and community.

Adopt-A-Class organizers would like to thank the 2021-22 school year partners including: Farmer’s Daughter Rustic Bakery, Mills Country Market, Magnifi Financial – NYM, New York Mills Public Library, Designs by Tes, Centennial Realty, Farmers & Merchants State Bank, Mills Locker Plant, Lake Country Home Care and Lumber Depot.

Organizers are very thankful for these businesses and hope they are excited to commit to another amazing year of partnership.  And in the same breath, they also welcome other NY Mills businesses to partner with us for the first time.

  Please consider this engaging opportunity to partner with the school and students. Anyone who is interested in the possibility of adopting a class for the 2022-23 school year, should contact Bridget Weller at or at 385-2553, ext. 317, no later than September 26. 

The Adopt-a-Class committee will be in touch with businesses by the beginning of October to confirm their adopted grade level.
