Community Involvement at Whitmore Lake Public Schools

Considering Whitmore Lake Public Schools is the educational institution of the Whitmore Lake community, we understand our public schools and those who run them have a duty and opportunity to be involved with the local community on a deeper level than most are able to be. That’s why WLPS values community involvement and is always taking steps to have a positive impact on Whitmore Lake and its citizens, in and out of the classroom.

Benefits of Student Involvement

Community service is an essential way for students to explore their interests, show colleges what they believe in, and define a possible career path. By engaging in volunteer work, teens have an opportunity to learn experientially.

  • Develops an increased sense of social responsibility & compassion
  • Provides an opportunity to apply academic learning to real human needs
  • Builds relationships with peers, adults, & like minded people sharing a cause
  • Helps students Improve on their communication & critical thinking skills

WLHS Rake & Run

Nothing says service in a more pronounced fashion in Whitmore Lake than the community service our students put in during Rake N Run. (Note: If you have never heard of it, Rake N Run is an event planned by the WLHS National Honor Society with a goal of raking as many yards of senior citizens in one day as possible. All students in grades 7 through 12 participate.)
