A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed their first full week back to school. Please remember that next week our students do not have school on Friday, January 18th or Monday, January 21st. We hope you enjoy the long weekend. Please join us next week on Thursday the 17th for our annual PTO Bingo event. We hope to see everyone there!

We are also thrilled to share the results of our school-wide food drive for the Knights of Columbus Holiday Giving Program. The competition was fierce and the generosity was amazing...we almost doubled the amount of food collected from the prior year. Our 2nd grade students brought in the most items, by a very narrow margin...less than 2% separated all grade levels. Our committee decided that because the competition was so close, the pajama day would be schoolwide. We will hold this day on Thursday, January 31st. Additionally, second grade students will have a special extended recess on a day that the weather will allow the students to fully enjoy the outdoors.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Mrs. Lowe & Mr. Blenderman

For the security of our students, it is imperative that we have complete and correct information for all persons authorized to pick-up your child from school. Only persons listed in the Parent Portal database will be permitted to pick-up your child from school

Please make sure your Parent Portal information is up-to-date. If someone is picking up your child and they are not in the Parent Portal as a contact, they will NOT be allowed to pick-up your child.
