Dear Millbridge Families,


Spring Picture Day

Photographers from Lifetouch will be here on Tuesday, February 28th for Spring pictures. An informational flyer/selection form was sent home last week.


Read Across America Week

Millbridge celebrates our love of reading with tons of fabulous classroom activities during Read Across America Week which begins on Monday. This year’s theme is “Oh the Places You’ll Go!”. A flyer came home today with all the details.


Pajama Day - March 3rd

Thanks to your generosity during the recent “Coin-A-Day Challenge” in conjunction with the  PTA Scholastic Book Fair, all of Millbridge will be comfy-cozy in their PJs on Friday, March 3rd.

No slippers, though, please wear regular footwear (sneakers).

The total raised to help build our classroom libraries and help others in need was an impressive $1,834.00 !!


Reporting your child absent

If your child is going to be absent from school and you do not want to receive a telephone call letting you know they are absent, then please call the absentee line before 9:00 a.m.  When reporting your child absent, please be sure to speak slowly and clearly, spell the child’s last name, and give the grade and teacher.
