     School Mission and Belief Statements

    The Binford Elementary staff, in partnership with parents and the community, engages each student to develop his/her individual abilities to become a productive, lifelong learner.


    As a Professional Learning Community we believe:

    • the purpose of our school is to ensure all students learn at high levels
    • helping all students learn requires a collaborative and collective effort
    • to assess our effectiveness in helping all students learn we must focus on results – evidence of student learning and use results to inform and improve our professional practice and respond to students who need intervention or enrichment (DuFour and DuFour, 2006)


    At Binford we believe that each child has value and that every child can learn. We are dedicated to establishing a safe and respectful environment in which each child will be given an opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential in the academic, social/emotional, physical and personal domains while nurturing the creative abilities of each child.

    Welcome Letter 2021-2022 School Year 


    Dear Parents/Guardians,


    I want to be the first to welcome all of you to another great year at Binford Elementary School.  I am excited and proud to  lead and guide all of our future and current Badgers this upcoming school year. This past school year was one of the hardest on record and our staff and students did an amazing job! We could never have guessed what the year would have brought us.  This 2021-22 school year will be an exciting and special year for all of our students, I know we have all missed each other.  We are going to put a huge emphasis on stressing the importance of living the values of our Life-Skills and PBIS School Wide Essential Agreements of Being Safe, Being Respectful, Being Responsible, as well as developing students into lifelong learners. We know that this past year was unusual and we are so proud of all the hard work that our students put forth in transitioning between remote learning and in-person learning.  We look forward to being together in the fall. 


    If your family has not already registered online through the MCCSC website please do that as soon as possible so that we can ensure that we have accurate numbers for the start of the school year. Please make sure the registration is filled out in its entirety, as there are important forms that all students need for the upcoming school year like the field trip permission, and video/photography consent, etc.  If you experiencing difficulty filling out the form online please stop by our office when it opens and we can assist you.  


    I am excited to be able to announce that Binford and Rogers will continue to have Spanish as a class this year for their students! This will be an exciting opportunity for our students, as we become globally minded citizens, to learn and understand the language, culture, and customs of other countries.


    As the summer planning continues for our schools, I will continue to update this website regularly and through parent communication via email and social media in order to continue to keep all our families informed about the latest developments from our school corporation.  Parents we will keep you posted on our social distancing and Covid-19 re-entry changes for the next school year as they become available.
