A Message from the Principals
Dear Millbridge Families,
It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and important adults in our students' lives join us for American Education week. Thank you for coming in to get a glimpse of what happens in the classroom.
Since Thursday’s unexpected snow arrived, there is no doubt that coat and glove season has arrived. Each day, we look at several factors to determine whether or not students are able to go outside to recess. Whenever possible, we try and send students outside to enjoy the fresh air, expend some energy and take a break so they can successfully engage in learning in the afternoon. This is also the time of year when our lost and found grows by leaps and bounds. Please be sure to write your child’s first initial and last name in those possessions that are likely to get misplaced such as lunchboxes, hats and scarves.
Stay warm and have a fantastic weekend.
Mrs. Jennifer Lowe and Mr. Richard Keegan

In this season of giving, Millbridge is excited to share our plans in November and December to help the needy in our own community.
Our THANKFUL TREE has already begun blooming with beautiful foliage thanks to so many generous families. A letter and paper leaf went home last week with each student. If you have not already done so, please decorate, cut out and return your leaf along with your donation. All donations from the Thankful Tree project will go to a hometown family in need.
Collection boxes have been set up in the cafeteria for collection of non-perishable goods until December 14th. These donations will assist the needy in our community through our partnership with the Knights of Columbus.
Holiday Craft Fair and Lunch with Santa
The annual PTO Craft Fair and Lunch with Santa is being held on Saturday, December 1st at the Middle School. Shop for great gift items and visit with Santa!
