Bingham Farms Elementary

Inspiring all learners to positively impact their world.

Principal's Note

  • Dear Bingham Families,

    What a wonderful first full week of school complete with a Friday, the 13th, full moon, downpour ‘during pick up’ ending. We had a great week around Bingham as the pre-school students have started and our kindergarteners have completed their first week of five days. Way to go, Eagles!

    Under the direction of Ms. Paige, Mrs. Gotz and Mrs. Pfershy, we have also transitioned 4th and 5th graders into their safety and service jobs. It is pretty amazing watching the kids jump into action to make the beginning and end of the day work. 

    Many thanks to everyone who participated in the ‘shoe-fie’ challenge. I am so proud of the Bingham community and our 2nd place finish with nearly 1200 posts. It was very cool to see Bingham all over social media with Eagle Pride. Please scoll down for this week’s activities and check your 4th or 5th grade child’s folder for MSTEP results.

    Have a great week.
    Sincerely,
    Joanna
