iPads Over the Summer

We will be allowing our students to keep their iPads over the summer. With the circumstances we have encountered this spring, we want to provide resources for families so that we continue opportunities for learning through the summer months.


If you wish to return your iPad, please contact the office to arrange a time to drop off the device.

Student Materials

Thank you to all the teachers who came in to pack up all the student items. Thank you to the paraprofessionals that brought down 700 bags into the gym to begin sorting. Finally, thank you to the staff and bus drivers who delivered all of our student belongings!

2020-2021 Registration Packets

All families should have received their registration packet last week in your child's bag. If you did not, please contact the office. YOu can either mail in yoru packets or drop them off at our office. You are also welcome to drop them off during our material drop off on Friday, May 22.

2nd- Blue Reading Bags with books inside

3rd- Blue Reading Bags with books inside

4th- Blue Reading Bags with books inside

Below are pictures of the Blue bag and the labels found on the books. Please look for these items for return on May 22.


In addition, we have many books that have been checked-out form our Media Center that will also need to be returned.



If you have an item(s) that need to be brought back to school, please come on Friday, May 22 between 8AM-12PM. Staff members will be out front providing curbside service to return items.


When pulling up, please state your child's teacher to the staff member so the item can be placed in the right bin.

Art to Remember

Families, if you ordered your child's artwork in March, please be aware there is a delay due to the stay-at-home order in Indiana where Art to Remember is based. When the state lifts the order and the employees can return to work, the company will begin on our products right away. Once they are shipped to the school, we will inform you how to go about picking them up. We are really sorry that the arrival date was pushed back, and we hope to contact you in the next few weeks with good news! Please contact mhauser@millburn24.net if you have further questions.
