A Message from the Principals

Hello Millbridge Families,

A HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers who assisted in chaperoning our field trips. Our second graders ventured to the Zoo today and our Kindergarteners will be going to the Please Touch Museum on Monday. Your participation is essential to allowing us to have these events for the students.

Please be reminded that if you are dropping your child off to follow the carpool loop. Please do not bring your child to the main entrance prior to 9:00 am. As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. Our continued thanks for your cooperation, support, and participation in your child's education.

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Massey and Mrs. Murphy

Thank you for a Great Year

Dear Millbridge Families,

It is bittersweet that I am writing this message to announce my resignation from Millbridge Elementary School. I appreciate all the support the Delran community has given me this school year. Although it was a short time, it was an honor to be part of the Delran family.

I received an opportunity that will benefit my family. I wish nothing but the best for the amazing students and families of Millbridge.


Mrs. Massey

1st Day School Supplies

As a convenience to families, we have once again partnered with 1st Day School Supplies! You can visit 1st Day School Supplies to order supplies for grades Pre-School - 5 for next year. Please be sure to choose the grade your child will be entering for the upcoming year.

Please note for the Millbridge lists there is an option to purchase headphones. Headphones will be an additional student supply for grades K - 2. These can be purchased as an optional add-on through First Day School Supplies, you can send in a pair you already own, or one purchased locally.

If you choose to order, your child’s supplies will be waiting for them in their classroom on the first day of school. Unfortunately, due to delivery constraints, supplies will not be available for pick up prior to the start of school, but labels are provided with the kits so your student will be ready to go from Day 1!

The deadline to order is July 1st.

Exceptions will be made for excused absences which include: (1) illness as certified by a physician within five days; (2) student’s required attendance in court inclusive of documentation; (3) excused religious observances; (4) Take Your Child to Work day; and (5) necessary and unavoidable medical or dental appointments that cannot be scheduled at a time other than the school day. Absences due to vacation are unexcused and are discouraged.

Snack at School

In order to ensure that all students with life-threatening allergies are safe at school, we ask that everyone adhere to this safe snack list.

Important Information: Breakfast and Lunch

Breakfast & Lunch can be purchased. We encourage parents begin an account and place money on their student account. Please click here for the breakfast order form.


Each year, we have countless items ranging from winter coats to backpacks that are lost. We strongly encourage parents to LABEL EVERYTHING with your child’s name, teacher and bus letter. Lost and found items are kept in the gym and put out periodically throughout the year.

Become an Observer in Canvas

If you have not already done so, please be sure to become an observer for your child(ren) in Canvas. The information below is from the district's webpage and will help you become a co-observer. If you have multiple children, you will be able to see everything for them in one place. Teachers will be providing a weekly overview for parents and notes for the week in Canvas.

To enable co-enrollment (observer) in Canvas K-12 your student will need to generate a pairing code and you will need to link the account. A parent may pair (link) to multiple children in the same parent (observer) account.

You will need to set up the pairing through a web browser like Chrome.You cannot enable pairing or observing through the parent app.

Co-enrollment means you can view grades, upcoming assignments and due dates, missing work, and teacher communication.

Teachers can send individual, group, and course-wide messages to students and parents.

Once you're co-enrolled, you'll want to set-up your notification preferences. Click here for instructions on setting up your notification preferences.

Watch the following video by our tech staff for more information.
