A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

We had yet another amazing week here at Millbridge Elementary School. During our short week, we had presenters from Blue Sky Puppets perform an interactive assembly for all of our students on how to prevent and report bullying or conflict. We also had an impressive presentation from Mrs. Jamie Zwier to our second grade students on the importance of healthy eating habits for an active lifestyle.

We hope all of you have a wonderful, long weekend and look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Monday.

Your partners in education,

Mrs. Lowe and Mr. Blenderman

Fall has arrived and with that comes colder weather. Please remember to send a sweater, sweatshirt or jacket with your child and remember to put their name in it, just in case it gets misplaced or left behind.

Lost and Found

Just a reminder that we have a lost and found box in the gymnasium, which is growing every day. If your child is missing something, there is a chance it may be in there. One way to not lose items is to make sure their full name is on it. Please stop by and take a look or ask your child to take a look during their lunch time.
