A Message from the Principals
Hello Millbridge Families,
We hope all of you had a restful, relaxing and healthy Thanksgiving break. Happy December! As the winter weather approaches, this time of year brings up warm feelings. We hope that all of you are feeling the same. Speaking of the colder weather, please make sure your children are dressed for the weather. They will be going outside as long as possible. We believe having that social time is very important. We feel that the relationships that are formed during this time are what matters most.
This month we are discussing the bear paw character trait, Helpful. Please help us in our efforts to talk to your students about ways to display being helpful. Teachers are observing and are constantly monitoring to decide who will be our next Cub of The Month.
As we approach the holiday season, I hope that we can hold the ones we love a little closer, speak a little kinder as we interact with each other day to day, and never take each other for granted.
Mrs. Massey and Mrs. Murphy

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.
