Principal's Note

  • Dear Bingham Families,


    This past Tuesday night, was such a wonderful night to walk the halls of Bingham Farms. As families walked around and 'visited different countries' hosted by other families, I was reminded once again of how special a place Bingham Farms is. I watched kids try different foods, play a new game or participate in making a craft representative of an artifact native to a culture that was new to them. I was inspired as I witnessed families connecting learning from each other at our Diversity Night. What a privilege we all have to learn from each other. In my opinion, this is one of the true values of education.

    Please help us spread the word about February 11th, our 2020-2021 school year Kindergarten Round-Up date. We are excited to meet our newest Eagles.


    Have a wonderful week.

    Proud Principal
