Teachers

Staff professional development occurs through many venues including in-service days, PCPEP days, and job embedded opportunities. Additionally, staff meet weekly in professional learning communities. The areas of focus for professional development during the 2017-18 school year were strategies to support students in the reading units of study curricula, the implementation of the My Math curricula and mathematics standards and instructional techniques to support English Language Learners. Additional PD opportunities were also provided to support the PBSIS initiative.

Supports

To support our students, we have three full-time ESL teachers, two full-time Reading Specialists, and three part-time Basic Skills teachers. We also have two full-time Speech Pathologists, and a district Occupational Therapist. We have a full complement of special education services including two preschool disabled classrooms, ICR classes, POR classes, and two self-contained settings. The district also employs two full-time Behavioral Analysts and a Behavioral Specialist to support students. Our Intervention and Referral Services team utilizes the Masonic Model Student Assistance Program.

Breakfast in the classrooms and a lunch program offering six choices to students are available daily. Students have a physical education & a health class once a week and every two weeks has a second gym class Studens participate in 20 minutes of recess daily. In addition to regular playground equipment, a large selection of Imagination Playground materials are available.

The Elementary PT0 provides students with enriching, memorable experiences such as family activity nights, educational assemblies, reading incentive programs, contests and field trips. The weekly Cub Corner informs parents of school happenings. All documents are accessible in a virtual backpack, posted on our website. Parent Portal provides parents access to their child’s information. Parent Advisory groups exist for English Language Learners & students with disabilities. Our ESL staff provide classes for parents who are looking to learn or improve their own English skills. Finally, Twitter is also used to share information.

Facilities

The Millbridge School was built in 1969 with an expansion done in 2002, adding ten additional classrooms to support increased enrollment. Each classroom has an air conditioning unit. We have two unique outdoor learning spaces. There is a pond/outdoor classroom in the courtyard. In 2016, a grant from Sustainable Jersey for Schools through the NJEA, funded a large rain garden that is also an interactive learning space which addressed a flooding problem on the playground.

School safety

The Delran Township School District is committed to the safety and security of its students and staff. There is a secure vestibule at the entrance of Millbridge, which is monitored by armed security personnel. We have numerous procedures in place to address visitor management. Our PBSIS committee works to ensure that there is a safe, positive environment for all students and designs school-wide activities and communications with parents to support this endeavor. District-wide, a panel of key stakeholders, including representatives from adminstration, food service, transportation, technology, and local law enforcement, meet at safety meetings to discuss various issues and refine our procedures, under the direction of our district security specialists.

Technology

Our media center houses a full computer lab and students participate in lessons to develop computer skills regularly. Each homeroom has a Smart Board, allowing for interactive and dynamic presentation of materials. Kindergarten classrooms have several iPads and 1st and 2nd grade classrooms have several Chromebooks for student use. Additionally, a Chromebook cart is available to allow classes to complete projects with a 1:1 ratio. The maker space in the media center allows students to explore robotics and coding. Kindergarten choice centers include a robotics and engineering station. There is a computer strategy games club that meets during the school day periodically throughout the year and afterschool robotics for 1st and 2nd grade. District-wide, we conduct special activities to celebrate the hour of code and resources are shared with parents. The Delran Township School District is in the beginning phases of opening a Fab Lab for all district students to use.

Early childhood

At Millbridge, we have two preschool classrooms that are staffed with certified preschool teachers that hold special education certificates and two full-time paraprofessionals. Students who are part of our preschool disabled program attend this program, at no charge. An annual lottery is also held for residents wishing to enroll their 3 or 4 year old child. There is tuition charged for non-classified students.

More

At Millbridge, the entire staff is focused on supporting our students. To help us achieve our mission, we have a full-time guidance counselor and a full-time and a part-time nurse at the school level along with a BCBA shared between two schools. Every classroom has a part-time Classroom Management Assistant who works with the teacher to support the students in the classroom as well as during lunch and recess. The school’s core values, known as the four Bear Paws- respectful, responsible, caring and helpful, guide our interactions and conversations with our students. Each morning, our students recite the Pledge of Allegiance and the “Cubs Care Promise” and participate in a daily morning meeting to help support their social and emotional development. These evolutions have contributed to a collaborative effort to continue to expand the scope of PBSIS, to include all stakeholders, to ensure a caring, consistent, and a safe, educational environment for all students in our school.
