A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,


This week, we hosted a new book fair, featuring books from Follett. Thank you to Mrs. Reasso, Mrs. Howard and our amazing PTO volunteers for organizing this event. We had an incredible showing at the bookfair. The students were so excited to be able to shop and purchase their very own books, and we appreciate your support.


Please click on the link below to review the information about Halloween. The sign-up for early dismissal closes on Monday, October 28th.


Your partners in education,
