A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

It was another great week here at Millbridge! Thank you to everyone who came out to support our school community and enjoyed some ice cream at The Meadows on Tuesday. Our second-grade students enjoyed their class trips to Camp Okanickon and we look forward to our first-grade trip next week to the aquarium. Just a reminder that if you are chaperoning the trip next week, please park only in the Calvary Church parking lot. A bus will be there to provide transportation to the school or you are more than welcome to walk if you would like. Our second-grade students will also be participating in the annual community clean-up with our high school students and the Green Team on Wednesday, May 15th.

Please remember that Thursday, May 16th is a single session schedule with dismissal starting at 1:00 pm.

We hope all of you enjoy a restful and relaxing weekend. Happy Mother’s Day!

Mrs. Lowe & Mr. Blenderman

Order supplies NOW for the 2019-20 School Year

As a convenience to parents, we have partnered with 1st Day School Supplies!!

School supplies may be ordered from now until June 30th using this link: 1st Day School Supplies and choose your child’s grade for the upcoming year.

If you choose to order, your child’s supplies will be waiting for them in their classroom on the first day of school. Unfortunately, due to delivery constraints, supplies will not be available for pick up prior to the start of school, but labels are provided with the kits so your student will be ready to go from Day 1!!

Special Area Showcase - May 16th from 6:00-7:00

Please feel free to stop by with your child and explore the fabulous displays and exhibits that will be housed throughout the building and explore Imagination Playground in our gymnasium.

Book Fair - May 13-17

This information flyer was sent home this week. Students will shop with their classes during school hours. Evening hours for family shopping will be 6:00 - 8:00 PM on Thursday, May 16th. This BOGO event will be the perfect opportunity to stock up on summer reading material!

IMPORTANT: Parking at Millbridge

We will have designated visitor spots for parents in the Millbridge parking lot, which will be clearly marked. All spaced with numbers are assigned to staff and should not be used by visitors. Please help us by only parking in the designated visitor spaces. If you are dropping off or picking up your child between the hours of 9:15 AM and 3:00 PM and all spots are taken, please use the bus lane as opposed to parking in a numbered space. As a reminder, there is always additional parking available on Conrow Rd. and Cavalry Church.

Reminder: 2nd Grade Parents

Our second graders will be participating in a cleanup at Delran High School on Wednesday, May 15th. Students will walk from Millbridge the morning of May 15th, escorted by Delran police and staff, to Delran High School. The cleanup will conclude by 10:30am. Please provide your child with sunscreen, a hat, long pants and socks with shoes, as well as water for the day. Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
