Walled Lake Elementary School

We just wrapped up another awesome week here at Walled Lake Elementary!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Curriculum Nights this week. I hope you were able to get a sense of what a typical day looks like in your child's classroom. I understand that life is busy and you may not have been able to attend. If so, please reach out to your child's teacher and they will gladly share any materials and information with you.

Thank you for being our partner in education. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, please reach out at cynthianickel@wlcsd.org or 248 956 4300. I am just an office visit, phone call or email away.


Cyndi Nickel, Ed.S.

Proud Principal, Walled Lake Elementary

Girl Scout Daisy Troop Info

Our current Girl Scout Daisy Troop is in need of new Troop Leaders! Registration is currently open for incoming Daisy Scouts, and the new Troop Leader meeting will be at Wixom Community Center on Monday, September 24th at 7pm. Please contact Jill Hill (989-450-2538) by Wednesday, September 19th, if you are interested in becoming a Daisy Troop Leader for this school year or would like more information on Leader responsibilities.

Voluntary Student Insurance

As a service to students and their families, our District is making available a student accident insurance plan for your child at a very nominal cost. The District offers this program because of trends in rising family health and dental insurance costs, increased deductibles, co-payments or lack of health or dental insurance coverage. Information can be found on the district website or by clicking HERE.

Communicate With Walled Lake Elementary

Communication is critical for us here at Walled Lake Elementary. Parents will be notified and updated in a variety of ways throughout the school year. The majority of information for parents will be available on our school and District website and through email.


It is critical that parents keep an updated email address and let us know if it changes as soon as possible. Parents may update this information for us on Skyward Family Access. All teachers at WLE, use Skyward Family Access to contact & communicate with parents. Report cards, lunch account information, progress reports, attendance, and other important information will always be posted on Skyward Family Access. If you are a new family to Walled Lake Schools or have misplaced or lost your Family Access ID and password, please click HERE to get connected.


Our WLE Weekly is sent electronically to parents on Friday afternoons. An archive of newsletters will be posted to our school website. Our school website can be found HERE. Please visit this page often for information about our school. You will find links to important documents, websites and blogs from your child's classroom, PTA forms and information, and important updates and forms that you will need to access.


Please follow us on Twitter @WLETigers to be updated regularly on important events at our school and fun pictures of student events and learning! We work hard to promote our school story through technology. You can also search the hashtag #wleced to see Tweets across the Walled Lake Consolidated School District and see our philosophy of "Every Child, Every Day" in action!
