Wing Lake Developmental Center

Wing Hills School In Michigan for Developmental Differences

Wing Lake staff is extremely proud of their reputation for providing quality educational programming for students with special needs. Wing Lake services Oakland County students with severe cognitive impairments (SCI) and severe multiple impairments (SXI) from three through twenty-six years of age. The school is open for instruction year round. Operating costs are covered through a combination of a countywide special education levy and state funding provided to resident school districts. The program is operated by the Bloomfield Hills School District. Eligible students reside within the 28 resident public school districts in Oakland County.

Student at Wing Lake Developmental Center for Special Needs

Wing Lake provides a comprehensive educational program in a caring and supportive environment where each student's fullest potential is the staff's greatest concern. An educational team evaluates the student's abilities in the developmental areas of gross motor, fine motor, self-care, language and pre-academic skills: math, reading, science and social studies. An Individual Educational Plan is written to meet the needs of each student. Long-range goals and short-term objectives are developed and progress is continually monitored. Along with therapies our program also provides activities including gym, music, swimming, community-based instruction, student council, and prevocational activities. Nursing staff is also available to monitor student health concerns. At Wing Lake we strive to teach as many skills of daily living and self-care as possible to increase independence. Staff also assists our students with transition planning in anticipation of program completion.

East Hills Book Swap

This month at East Hills a new tradition began.  The Book Swap.  March is reading month and some parents had the idea to hold a book swap to help celebrate reading month.  Last week students were encouraged to bring up to 5 books, at the 4th to 8th grade reading level, that they could then swap for other books on Monday, March 11th.  Roughly 70 students participated and brought books, and over 250 books were swapped.  This tradition was a fun way to get students to connect over reading, to read more, and to recycle books instead of throwing them away.  We hope that this tradition will continue on for many years and would like to wish everyone a very Happy Reading Month!

Kindergarten Force and Motion Exhibition

Charlotte Du, a kindergartner at Eastover, explains, "Force is either a push or pull.  I like showing my parents how we make orange juice.  We pull the lever up and then push down to squeeze the orange juice out."  Sophia Wright adds, "We made a marble maze with a paper plate. We are pulling and pushing the marble around on the plate to direct the ball into the tubes." Teddy McCoy excitedly shares, "We presented a ton of activities to our parents showing force and motion.  We did a cup and ball toss, marble slides, and slinky demonstration."

Junior Festinema - French Film Festival

Recently, students in the French learning community from grade 6-8 at West Hills were among the 150 French students from greater Détroit who participated in the annual film festival at the Maple Theater. Following the excursion, French students have been engaged in sharing ideas and perspectives regarding plot, characters and setting of the film, making personal and intercultural connections and comparisons as well as discussing the morals of the story. The WHMS French learning community would like to thank the BHS Foundation for their generous grant and Alliance Française de Détroit for their collaboration in making this cultural inquiry experience come to fruition.
