The 2019-2020 Bishop Elementary School staff outside of Bishop Elementary School

Bishop Elementary

Bishop Elementary has a multi-age learning environment utilizing the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery. At Bishop, different aged students are combined into the same classrooms which are divided into grade-level houses; Lower (K-1), Middle (2-3), and Upper (4-5). Students have the opportunity to mentor younger students and be mentored by older students.

The High/Scope model of instruction focuses on self-directed learning and responsibility. The daily schedule is designed to accommodate individual needs and interests.

SPANISH IMMERSION

Students in Spanish Immersion are taught the identical curriculum, however, the classroom language is Spanish. English is introduced later, allowing students to leave elementary school at grade level in two languages.

Lincoln’s Spanish Immersion program is the only program of its kind in Washtenaw County and one of the few language immersion programs in Michigan. It is housed in Bishop Elementary and utilizes the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery.

Clothing Closet Donations We're looking to restock our stash of extra clothes to have on hand for the occasional student mishap. Currently, we are quite low on pants and could use pants in all youth sizes. We'd be delighted to accept any new or gently used/freshly laundered pants, but stretchy material or sweat pants in gender-neutral colors are preferred! Thank you!
Extra Set of Clothes We encourage each student to have an extra set of seasonally-appropriate clothes to keep in their locker. We never know when a student will get muddy out at recess, have a spill at lunch, or have another mishap throughout the day. An extra set of clothes kept at school can really help in a pinch. Thank you!
NWEA Testing We would like to let you know that we will begin Winter NWEA testing starting next week. It will end on February 2. If your child will be at school on testing day, they will test at school. If your child will be at home on the testing day, they will test at home on their own device like they did in the Fall. Your child's teacher will let you know the dates and times for testing so be on the lookout for that information. Thank you!
Open Hours for Pick-Up We will continue to have weekly Open Pick-Up Hours as we move back into hybrid in-person learning. Please park in the bus loop and head to the main entrance doors. A staff member will assist you. If these dates/times do not work for you, please call the office to schedule an appointment (734-484-7074). Upcoming Open Pick-Up Hours are set for: M/T/TH/F from 10AM-2PM and TH from 4:30PM-6:30PM. Please note: Pick-Up Hours will be cancelled any day school is not in session.
Retake Pictures Have Arrived Retake pictures have arrived at Bishop. If your student will be attending school in-person next week, they will be sent home with your student. If your student is remaining virtual at this time, you may pick up your pictures during any of our Open Pick-Up Hours: 1/14 from 4PM-6PM and starting next week: M/T/TH/F from 10AM-2PM And TH from 4:30PM-6:30PM (no Open Pick-Up Hours on 1/18 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.)
