A Message from the Principals
Dear Millbridge Families,
The time that many of our students have been waiting for is here...Halloween. Please know that it is also a half day and dismissal begins at 1:00. Below please find information about Halloween festivities and our exciting School Store fundraiser. If your child is not participating in Halloween activities, please email your child’s teacher(s) and MBoffice@delranschools.org so we can arrange alternate activities for them on that day.
Have a fantastic weekend!!

Mr. Mark's Important Safety Information
Parents dropping off students should use the student drop off area only, not the parking lot. Remain in vehicles and follow the line of cars up to the building area where school staff wearing safety vests are present. Parents should try and remain in their vehicle and let the staff assist with the students exiting the car. At no time should students be exiting the cars walking in the roadway unattended.
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.
Autumn Family Fun
Join the Burlington County Historical Society for their Harvest Fest. Details here.
Our SchoolStore.com fundraising program started on Tuesday with great success. Thank you to all who have participated! If you have not already done so, it is not too late. We will be collecting the information until Tuesday. This no-cost fundraising program was very successful last year. It is NO COST to the school and NO DOOR-TO-DOOR SELLING. Participating students have the opportunity to win prizes.
Here is a video that the students saw on Tuesday: http://schoolstore.com/video/VideoBP.html. Our School ID# is 158771.
