The Mill is run by students here at Sartell High School. The people who work there in the mornings and at sporting events are actual employees, and the ones working during lunch are either a TA for Hannah Gelhar or a student in a Culinary 3 class. The entire quarter of a Culinary 3 class is learning how to work at The Mill and how to have good customer service. This class is in need of more students so that The Mill is able to be open for lunch all year. 

Currently and ending on December 15th, The Mill has a guess how many peppermints are in a jar game. The person who guesses the number of peppermints correctly or the closest wins a free drink. The Mill also has a find your doppelgänger competition. A doppelgänger is an unrelated lookalike of yourself. Once you find someone who looks like you, submit your name, your doppelgänger’s name, and a photo of the two of you. You can find a QR code at The Mill to submit your information. All photos are due December, 20th, and then students at Sartell High School will vote on the best doppelgänger. The winners of the doppelgänger competition win a free drink as well.

The Holly Jolly consists of two pumps of blue raspberry syrup, ½ iced black tea, and ½ lemonade. The Pink Reindeer is 1 pump raspberry syrup, 1 pump coconut syrup, ½ monster, and ½ lemonade. Both of the drinks are very good, and you should definitely try them out!
