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.

When: March 8th 2018, 4 - 7pm
Where: Lone Pine
Arts - all students will have amazing art on display! Frames will be sold the night of the show for $30 cash or check. 
Beats- musically motivated teachers will be performing in the gym at 5 pm!
Treats - will be provided by the Lone Pine PTO!
Why: is the art show different this year?
This year we have started to look deeply into what it means to be an artist and what artists do in the art studio. The students have been working very hard at creating artwork that is more about creativity. The new focus of the Lone Pine Art Program is a TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) philosophy. This has been an exciting and big change for our students. Students have been asked to take over their learning and creating in new ways. Since all the artwork is student directed it will focus on the child's aesthetic.

Planting Seeds of Knowledge

“We’re doing experiments with plants to see what they need to grow!” exclaims Finn Leary, 2nd grade student in Jackie May’s Lone Pine classroom.  Nolan Johnston, another of May’s students, adds, “We planted seeds.  Some have water, and some have no water, and we put some in cabinets, and we’ll see if they grow.”
