Dear Reader,

The Thunderbolt has a rich tradition of reporting campus life at Mills High School. For 59 years and counting, our award-winning newspaper has spotlighted student achievements, reported sporting events and informed the Mills community of the latest news. Unfortunately, the Thunderbolt’s tradition of producing the print newspaper is in serious jeopardy due to financial difficulties. We are a financially self-sufficient student newspaper. However, our operating budget has plummeted dramatically as a result of fewer subscriptions and a lack of advertisements, making it nearly impossible to continue printing the newspaper. Eliminating the newspaper from our campus would leave a void in the community and be devastating to the students of Mills.

Please support us by purchasing a print subscription ($25 for 6 issues) or sending in a donation. Checks may be made out to Mills High School and mailed to 400 Murchison Drive, Millbrae CA 94030. If subscribing, be sure to note your home address so we may mail you copies of the Thunderbolt. Thank you!
