The season is upon us Deer season? Yes! However, I’ve been too busy to commit to that just yet.  What I am committed to is the season of giving. Having just spent a good chunk of my month in China (I’ll share more in another blog as to why I was there), I returned to … Continued

When some people hear the name Whitmore Lake they say, “I’ve never heard of that,” or “Where is that?” When I hear the name Whitmore Lake, I immediately think that’s my school, and I’m proud to go there. I have been a student at Whitmore Lake Public Schools my whole life. I’ve never known anywhere … Continued

Diving Deeper: Technology Update

With the help of our community and their support for Whitmore Lake Public Schools, the first year of sinking fund technology updates is well underway. This is an exciting time for our district. Most of the classroom technology is old and will not support updates in 2020, so this is where our focus begins. All … Continued
