Dear Millbridge Families,

Holidays for Heroes

Over the next few weeks, staff and students at Millbridge will be participating in the Holidays for Heroes program sponsored by the American Red Cross at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst by making winter holiday cards for our active service members and veterans to be distributed in December.  

If you would like your family to join us in this effort, please follow the guidelines below and send in the  card between Monday, November 21st and Tuesday, December 6th so they can be delivered and distributed before the holidays.

Please use the following guidelines when writing cards:

  • Address cards to “Service Member” or “Veteran.”

  • Write a note! Keep your message positive and upbeat.

  • NO glitter.

  • Do not enclose any items with your holiday cards. Any items enclosed will be removed.

  • In school, students are including only their first name and town. At home, you may sign it “the XXX family” and include our town.  Do not include additional personal information such as email, phone number or address.

  • Do not put cards in envelopes. Individual cards in envelopes cannot be accepted.

Reading with the Soul

The Philadelphia Soul understands the importance of reading, which is why they are introducing “Reading with the Soul!” This program is designed not only to encourage children to read more, but also to show them the enjoyment and benefits that reading provides.

This Reading Incentive has wonderful rewards! Please see the Details Here. Program materials will be distributed in December - our goal is 100% participation.
