As you may or may not know, the 2016-17 school year will be the last year Bishop Elementary will be open. We will be consolidating with Shaner Elementary and Avondale West Elementary and moving over to the new Jardine Academy PreK-8 site that is being built as an addition to Jardine Middle School.    

With that said, we have created a "Proud to be a Bulldog" committee here at school that will focus on celebrating Bishop as we prepare to close.  We will be advertising and hosting community events for the public to attend.  

We are hoping to see Bulldogs, both past and present, as we honor this amazing neighborhood school!  If you would like to have more information, please contact our office!  Finally, be sure to keep an eye out for events!  The next one will be our Bulldog Bash Open House and Annual Block Walk on May 4th from 5:30 to 7:30. This event will feature opening the 51 year old Maude Bishop time capsule, bouncy houses and 30 foot obstacle course for the kids, a variety of outdoor activities that are fun for families, a canned food drive to donate to a local food pantry, a silent auction and MORE!
