A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

Thank you for your support in gathering school supplies and filling out back-to-school paperwork. We know the start of the school year can be a massive project for parents.

Please see the various information below for important Millbridge information.

The staff at Millbridge is committed to working with our families to support our students. Please do not hesitate to contact any of our staff members for assistance. Thank you and have a fantastic weekend.

Mrs. Lowe and Mr. Karakashian

  • Immediately following that presentation, your child’s teacher or teachers will provide an overview of their classroom.

Basic Skills and RTI Informational Session

At 6:15 before each Back to School Night, there will be an informational session for parents and guardians who received notification that their child would be receiving additional support. Only parents that receive a letter informing them that their child was selected for this support should attend. Please attend the informational session that is held on the same night as your child’s Back to School Night. For students that attended Millbridge last year, the determination was made using the end of year scores. For new students, assessments have been started and you will be notified upon their completion if your child qualifies for additional support.
