Lone Pine Elementary School

Lone Pine Elementary school is located in West Bloomfield Township. The mission of Lone Pine Elementary is to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which students achieve personal academic excellence, demonstrate caring and responsibility, and become empowered, internationally-minded citizens and lifelong learners.

The educational focus at Lone Pine is based on developing confident, creative, flexible, technologically savvy, 21st century learners and preparing them to anticipate and collaboratively solve the challenges in an ever-changing world. The Lone Pine staff and community are pleased to share with one another this mission of preparing students for the future.

At our Lone Pine Art Show  on March 8th, the framed artwork of one of our students was purchased, but not by a member of her family. While this is a huge compliment to our young artist, she would really like to have her art back. At this point we are wondering if an extended family member (maybe a grandparent?) may have purchased the art. If you or your family member purchased this painting (image attached), please contact Mrs. Olson at or contact the main office at 248.341.7300. We will happily refund the purchase price and return the puppy painting to our talented young artist.

Lone Pine Celebrates With Arts, Beats and Treats!

I loved everything about this show - the art, the music, the ice cream!" exclaims 3rd grade student Yusuf Khazi.  On Thursday, March 8th, Lone Pine Elementary School brimmed with energy, as families and faculty shared art, music and ice cream.  An annual event, Arts Beats and Treats celebrates the students' art work, hung by family volunteers and faculty members, throughout the school.  This year, faculty members performed ten songs, complete with piano and guitar accompaniment.

This year Lone Pine staff will be utilizing student led conferences in 2nd and 3rd grade for the April parent/guardian conference. The first ten minutes of the 20-minute conference will be student led, then students will be excused for the second half of the conference to complete a personal reflection, allowing for a traditional, private adult conversation between parents/guardians and the teacher.

We are excited for the opportunities this presents our students to show ownership of who they are as learners, reflect on their progress as 3rd graders, set personal goals for the coming year, and establish a path as advocates for their own educational journey. 

2nd and 3rd grade teachers will be sharing conference sign-up information in the near future. When you sign up for a time, please be sure that your child is available to attend with you. If you sign up for a time during the school day, your child will be excused from class to join you.
