    Welcome to Binford!

     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. 



    Updated Dismissal Procedures!



    Binford Families,


    Thank you for working with us as we made some changes from the previous year’s dismissal procedures.  We want to make sure that our students are as safe as can be when crossing the drives between Binford and Rogers Elementary.

    We will dismiss walkers/bike riders first and they will exit door 10.

     *If you are parking in the lot on campus and not utilizing the circle drive, or parking off campus and walking over and picking up your student, please have them exit with the walkers.  Students will see their families and come to you and you may walk over to your vehicles in the location where you parked.

    Car riders using the drive will be waiting in the cafeteria and as families pull up to the circle the students will come out of the school to the car.  Staff members will escort the students out to their vehicles to make sure all of our students are getting in the appropriate vehicle and are accurately accounted.

    Proud to be a Badger!
