Dear Bingham families,
Last week we had the opportunity to celebrate our students’ creativity in the arts. One of our students, Audra G was honored Monday at a PTA reception for state Reflection contest winners. Audra, a 1st grader was given an Honorable Mention. Her artist statement was especially insightful. On Tuesday, our 5th grade Orchestra students participated in a concert with our three of our neighboring elementary schools. On Thursday, Mr. Hunter organized a fantastic art show. The show was a celebration of art that that the students have already produced as well as an opportunity to create additional art. Students enjoyed the opportunity to try out the Lego robotics, brought to us by the Robot garage. Other students enjoyed creating Lego models at home for a contest; winners will be announced on Monday.
We also received the exciting news that Mrs. Joanna McKinney was chosen as Bingham Farms Principal. We are thrilled to have Mrs. McKinney be our next leader. She is an experienced educator, mom and community advocate. We are looking forward to her joining us officially this summer; in the meantime, there will be transition activities this spring for staff, students and families to welcome Joanna.
Hope you enjoyed the weekend, and have a wonderful week!
