Inspiring all learners to positively impact their world.

Principal's Note

  • Dear Bingham Families,

    We are fortunate to be part of a school community that values the importance of rest. It is my sincerest hope that your family enjoys the upcoming winter break in whatever way you desire.

    As you plan for the upcoming weeks, please read on for important dates for which we invite your involvement. We are bringing the proud dad's club back with an annual meeting to be held on 2/26. Also, save the date 3/6 from 8-8:40 am to be a VIP reader with your child for our before school event to help celebrate March is Reading Month.

    Have a great break!
