Principal's Note

  • Dear Bingham Families,

    Thank you for your continued partnership, parents! We see everything you are doing to share the responsibilities of ‘pandemic learning’ with us. Whether it is learning new terms like asynchronous, trying to find the LIVE UA zoom link in schoology, or coordinating pick-up of materials, we know it is taking great effort on your part. Likewise, we have appreciated the many comments of gratitude shared with our staff. Despite all of the challenges since March, we have certainly also been able to see amazing little gifts. The evolution of the Team Bingham community has been one of the strongest.

    As we enter another week of virtual learning, we hope the movement within schoology continues to become easier. On Tuesday of this week, we will have our virtual curriculum night. Please note that Thursday is a half day for students and material deployment this week is only needed for grades K-2. Finally, please scroll down for the continued opportunity to update your information in the membership hub and join our PTA.

    With appreciation for all that you are doing,

    Joanna

    Proud Principal

Welcome

  • eagle

     

    Bingham Farms Elementary is a wonderfully diverse school with a cozy, family atmosphere. In recent years, our total enrollment averages 300 with class sizes averaging 20 students!

    We pride ourselves on helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Bingham takes character education seriously, and we strive to "Be our Bingham Best" all day every day! The Bingham Best touchstones reflect the core values of our school:

    RESPECT, KINDNESS, RESPONSIBILITY, and HONESTY.

    These traits of good character are displayed around the school on pillars, in classrooms, and on our Bingham eagle posters. Most importantly, they are displayed regularly by the students in our school.

    Many of these lessons culminate when the upper-elementary students serve as buddies to younger grades. The older students read to the younger ones, help them with team-building activities, and more. Bingham also recently introduced the Eagle’s Nest program to build on our family atmosphere. Students meet in K-5 nest groups where they create mascots and get to know other teachers. The Eagle’s Nests meet for some assemblies, meetings, and other enrichment activities. Students get to know more people from other grades, allowing for friendships and mentorships to develop across the building!

     

    Curriculum & Enrichment

    Our highly qualified staff is committed to helping each student discover their highest potential. We provide students with intellectually challenging instruction in math, literacy, science, and social studies, all with integrated technological and collaborative teaching methods. This core curriculum is complemented by extraordinary art, music, physical education, Spanish, and media classes. Along with the rich curriculum, we offer myriad enrichment opportunities both on and off site like Math Pentathlon, Battle of the Books, Science Olympiad, the fifth grade camp trip, a third grade field trip to the Capitol in Lansing, and more! You will often see our parking lot full as we host numeracy, literacy, and diversity nights during the year.

     

    If you are a prospective Bingham family, please visit Prospective Families on the Birmingham Public Schools website for more details and to learn more about our enrolling process. Tours will resume once restrictions allow us to safely do so. At that time, arrange for tours by contacting Community School Organizer, Cindy Blakely, at (248) 203-3382, or via email by clicking HERE
