Parent/Teacher Conferences - scheduling will open on 11/29

Once again, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to schedule your parent/teacher conference online. You will have the ability to select the time that works best for you and, if you so choose, receive an email reminder with the date and time of your conference. You can easily switch between Millbridge and DIS using the dropdown menu on the main page. The step-by-step directions are below. Please let our main office know if you have any problems.


  1. Visit the Millbridge or Delran Intermediate School’s homepage or click here

  2. From the Online Scheduler Home Page

    • Choose your student’s school from the drop down list and click “GO”.

    • Enter the school password which is bears.

    • Enter your student’s “Student ID”. If you do not know their Student ID, use the LOOKUP STUDENT ID button to access the system.

    • Verify the student’s birth date.

    • Your child’s homeroom teacher will be displayed.

    • If you have more than one student in the school you can see all of your students’ teachers’ schedules at one time by answering YES to this question “Do you want to schedule conferences for another student?” then repeat the steps above for your other students. If you only have one student, answer NO to that question.

    • You will then see the available time slots for each teacher you selected.

    • Select the times that work best for your schedule.

    • Enter your email address (recommended) if you would like an email reminder sent to you. (Your email address is kept private.)

    • Once you have finished you can confirm your appointment details and print your conference schedule.

    • Write down the Confirmation Number (you will need this number to cancel your appointment).


If you run into difficulty, please contact the main office at 856-461-2900 on Monday for assistance.


Please note:

  • If you have informed your child’s teacher that you need a translator present during your conference, a conference time has already been scheduled for you; you do not need to do anything. There are still a few open slots available so if you did not ask for a translator and need one, please call our office and we will assist in scheduling you during an available slot.

  • If your child receives supplemental services, such as Basic Skills or ESL, whenever possible the teacher will join your child's homeroom teacher at the conference. If they are not at the conference and you have concerns you would like to discuss, please feel free to email the teacher.

  • If you would like to schedule a meeting with your child’s related service provider (OT and/or speech), please email the teacher.

Cold Weather

Winter is here. Students go out EVERY DAY possible to enjoy the fresh air. Make sure they have a jacket, and any other accessories (hat, gloves, scarf) labeled with their name.

Knights of Columbus Food Drive

Help us help families in need. Millbridge is partnering with the Knights of Columbus in the annual Holiday Basket food drive. Students may bring in their non-perishable items until December 13th and place them in the box in their classroom. The grade with the most donations will receive a special treat.

Recipes

The 2nd Grade Assembly and Family Fun Night, Oh How Healthy, was a success. There were two recipes that the students and Mrs. Zwier made together, Veggie Taco Salad and Healthy Cookie Recipe.
