Bingham Farms Elementary

Inspiring all learners to positively impact their world.

Principal's Note

  • Dear Bingham Families,

     

    Wow! As the first trimester of school is coming to close, the weather has certainly shifted quickly. Remember our students head outside for much needed breaks even when it is cold, so be sure to send along winter outerwear as the weather changes.

    Please read this eNews carefully as it is loaded with information about conferences, viewing report cards, spirit week, a new date for Diversity Night and much more.

    Have a great week! 

    Joanna McKinney

    Proud Principal
