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.
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.
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.

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.
