A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

What an exciting week we had here at the Mill….Halloween was a huge success. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Please remember there is no school next Thursday and Friday.

Have a fantastic weekend!!

Mr. Mark's Important Safety Information

Parents dropping off students should use the student drop off area only, not the parking lot. Remain in vehicles and follow the line of cars up to the building area where school staff wearing safety vests are present. Parents should try and remain in their vehicle and let the staff assist with the students exiting the car. At no time should students be exiting the cars walking in the roadway unattended.

Early Pick-ups

Parents, please remember if you need to pick up your child early, let your teacher or the main office know so that he/she is ready and there is no delay. Please arrive by 3:00 to sign out in the main office; otherwise, it is very busy in the main office and you might get delayed in dismissal car lines. Thank you for your help with this.

Millbridge Philanthropy

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 will be going up in the cafeteria for everyone to see. A letter and paper leaf went home this week with each student. Please decorate, cut out and return your leaf along with your generous donation. All donations from the Thankful Tree project will go to a hometown family in need.

  • Starting November 14th through December 17th collection boxes will be set up in the Main Lobby for the collection of non-perishable goods. These donations will assist the needy in our community through our partnership with the Knights of Columbus.
