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.


Please remember that nuts of all kinds are restricted at Lone Pine because of students with severe and life-threatening allergies. This includes nut butters, products containing nuts or nut by-products. The restriction is in effect in the entire building and at all times, including the school day, after school, evenings and weekends.

Please note the PTO wall calendar sent home on Curriculum Night has an error on November 20th. This is a FULL day of school for Lone Pine students, but 4th-8th WHMS/BHMS/EHMS students have a half-day. This is always a tricky date for us, so please mark this clearly on your family calendars!

What is the Fun Run? 
The Fun Run is one of our largest PTO fundraisers that typically raises about $20,000 for our school annually. This funding enriches the lives of Lone Pine students, supports our staff, and builds community. 

The Fun Run promotes student fitness, and provides an exciting way to involve students in supporting Lone Pine. Please donate whatever you are comfortable with as a family. In the past, the average family donation has been $65, which has allowed us to implement programs that enhance your child’s school experience.

Did someone say prizes!?
There are many great prizes to be won by students who raise the most within their class and grade, within the school, and even within their birthday month!

A reserved parking spot for the year, Teacher for the Day, and your child’s birthday featured on the Lone Pine sign are just a few of the prizes to be won!

What are other important details to know?
The event is from 9:30-11:30, divided by grade as follows. 
Will be held rain or shine - children will either run outside or boogie inside, all while showing their Lone Pine Spirit (Lone Pine Spirit Wear, or wear the most blue and green - our school colors - that you possibly can!). Parents welcome!
