A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,

Thank you to all of our families and staff who participated in The Eagles Autism Challenge. We raised almost $800, which will be matched dollar for dollar by the Eagles. When we return from break, there are two things that are important to know. There will be a presentation for parent and guardians only by representatives from the Burlington County Child Abuse Prevention program- more information is below. Additionally, we will have designated visitor spots for parents in the Millbridge parking lot, which will be clearly marked. All spaced with numbers are assigned to staff and should not be used by visitors. Please help us by only parking in the designated visitor spaces.

The Delran Township School District will be closed for spring break and will reopen on Monday, April 29th.

We hope everyone enjoys the spring break and we look forward to seeing you when we return.

Mrs. Lowe & Mr. Blenderman

IMPROTANT: Parking at Millbridge

We will have designated visitor spots for parents in the Millbridge parking lot, which will be clearly marked. All spaced with numbers are assigned to staff and should not be used by visitors. Please help us by only parking in the designated visitor spaces. If you are dropping off or picking up your child between the hours of 9:15 AM and 3:00 PM and all spots are taken, please use the bus lane as opposed to parking in a numbered space. As a reminder, there is always additional parking available on Conrow Rd. and Cavalry Church.

Updated District Calendar

On April 15th, the Board of Education approved this revised 2018-19 District Calendar. Please note that we have two leftover snow days to allocate into the current year calendar. As such, we will not have school on May 24, 2019 or May 28, 2019 in order to give those days back.

2nd Grade Community Clean Up- 2nd Grade Parents Please Read!

All of our second graders, as part of our Millbridge School Green Team, will have an opportunity to participate in a cleanup at Delran High School on Wednesday, May 15th. the cleanup is sponsored by Sustainable Delran, Delran High School Green Team and the Millbridge School Green Team leaders, thanks to a Clean Communities Grant from the Burlington County Parks Department. Prior to the cleanup, your child will learn about the “Do’s and Don’ts” of touching trash, avoiding certain plants and animals, and general health and safety precautions. Students will walk from Millbridge, the morning of May 15th, escorted by Delran police and staff, to Delran High School. The cleanup will conclude by 10:30 am. Please provide your child with sunscreen, a hat, long pants and socks with shoes, as well as water for the day. Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
