The Book fair is next week October 15-19. The students will be attending with their classes during school hours. Our evening family shopping hours are on Tuesday and Thursday 6-8 pm.

This is a great opportunity to grow your family library and help out your school. Permission forms were sent home this week. Thank you for your support.

Halloween Information


Millbridge students will be celebrating with our annual parade on Wednesday, October 31st. The parade will begin at 11:15 through the front doors and will continue to march around the side and back of the building ending at the cafeteria playground. We ask that parents line up outside the cones. The parade will begin with our 2nd graders, followed by 1st grade, then kindergarten and finally preschool.

As a service to parents with students at both DIS and Millbridge, we are providing shuttle buses between the two schools for the parades. The DIS parade begins at 10:15. There will be a shuttle bus from Millbridge to DIS at 10:00; DIS to Millbridge at 11:00, and Millbridge to DIS at 12:00. We hope that this will ease parking concerns for parents with children at both schools. We are looking forward to a great parade!


We know how exciting it is to dress up and assume a new identity, but there are some important guidelines we need you to follow. Costumes should be worn to school over your child’s clothes. If your child’s costume has a mask, please send the mask in a bag or your child’s backpack. Costumes may not include weapons (plastic knives, swords, guns, etc…).

In order to monitor the safety of our Halloween Event, we ask that parents do not wear costumes so that everyone is easily recognizable and our students are kept safe. Thank you for your cooperation.

Classroom Parties and Treats

If you are providing treats for the classroom, please drop them off at the main office by 9 AM. Label the item with the teacher’s name so that we can easily deliver to them.

Teachers have provided the office with the names of adults assisting in the classrooms and passes will be sent home. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PASS, WE REGRET THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VISIT THE CLASSROOM.


Please remember to either send a note or email your teacher, or call the main office, if your child is taking a different way home (ie., usually takes the bus, but someone is picking him/her up).

PTO Info

Did you know that you can access PTO information by clicking website under the bear located on the bottom right-hand corner of each week’s Cub Corner?
