Bingham Farms Elementary

Inspiring all learners to positively impact their world.

Principal's Note


    Dear Bingham families,

    It seems as if fall has skipped us and moved right into winter, time to dig out the cold weather gear!   Our students love their outdoor recess and we want to make sure they have warm coats, hats, boats and gloves in the coming weeks.  Our 5th graders will especially need plenty of winter clothe at Camp next week.  I know I am packing down coats and boots. Our campfire and night hike is going to be fun, however pretty cold. You may have noticed the increased traffic situation in and around Bingham, please see the related article for construction news, it is going to be with us for a while so please be patient in and around our parking lot, our students are quite precious to us, be safe! 

    Enjoy our last full week of school before Thanksgiving.





    Students report cards will be sent home in backpack mail on Friday November 16

    There is a ½ day of school for students on both days and Parent/Teacher conferences from 1:00-4:00 and 5:00-8:00.  Attached is a listing of the Classroom Teachers’ sign up genius for scheduling the conferences.  Our unified arts teachers will be in their classrooms, so be sure to stop in there to see those teachers also.

    Area Road Construction
    I’m sure you’ve noticed the road construction surrounding the school. While there aren’t many alternate routes, I’d like to share the following information we do know about the construction. Allowing for additional time in your commute is a wise approach this November!

    • 14 Mile Road between Telegraph and Lahser – road closed until the end of November.
      • Alternate route is Telegraph to Maple and Maple down Lahser.  
    • Evergreen between Lincoln and 14 Mile Road down to one lane. This work extends for much of 14 Mile Road between Evergreen and Lahser, with one-way traffic going west (both lanes open from Lahser to just past Berkshire Middle School). Work is expected to be complete by mid-November.  
      • Subdivisions have been barricaded to stop thru traffic. Allow for additional time in your commute.


    • Southfield Road construction between 12 and 13 Mile Road until mid-November.
    • Westbound 14 Mile Road between Southfield and Greenfield road construction until mid-November.
