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.

Calling All Water Bottles! Do you have any old water bottles cluttering up your house? We can only use our water bottle filling stations this year (instead of the drinking fountains), so we're looking to increase our supply of extra water bottles to keep on hand when a student's bottle has been accidentally left at home. If you have any extra water bottles that are still in good condition, please consider donating them to Bishop. They will be cleaned and sanitized before first use.
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!
2019-2020 Yearbooks Have Arrived The 2019-2020 yearbooks have arrived! For those of you who ordered a yearbook: If your student is with us in-person this year, they will be sent home with your student over the next few days. If you are remaining virtual this year or are no longer at Bishop, you can come to the Bishop Office Mon./Tues. and Thurs./Fri. from 9:30AM-2:30PM to pick your order up. If you need to make other arrangements, please call the office (734) 484-7074.
