A weekly update from the West Bloomfield School District

January 17, 2020

We hope to see you at our 26th Annual United We Walk event this Sunday, Jan. 19 at 2:30 p.m. in the WBHS atrium. Our short program will be followed by our traditional walk down Orchard Lake and returning to the high school. At the conclusion of the walk, there will be light refreshments served as well as several unique community service opportunities for the community to take part in. We look forward to seeing you Sunday.

There is no school for students or staff on Jan. 20 in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. We encourage everyone to use the day as an opportunity to give back to our community by volunteering or participating in a community service project.
