    • Kirk Pedersen’s Powder to the People 5k run/walk

      Walled Lake Central High School is proud to put on their second annual Kirk Pedersen’s Powder to the People 5k run/walk. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it is a 5k that takes place on the roads near Walled Lake Central High School. This event will benefit former WL Central teacher, Kirk Pederson.

      On October 25, 2008 Kirk’s life came to a crashing halt. The tree stand he was using collapsed while hunting, leaving him paralyzed from the shoulders down. Kirk would endure seven months of hospitalization at three different hospitals. His goal was a full recovery and a return to teaching in the profession he loved. Despite continued rehabilitation and determination, his recovery resulted in a fashion that did not allow him to return to teaching in the classroom. Kirk continues to be an inspiring and motivated person despite his numerous setbacks.

      Now Kirk is scheduled for another surgery that will leave him on bed rest for 2-3 months. This is not only physically challenging but mentally too. To help him get through this rough time, there is a special device that will prevent muscle atrophy. It is a device meant to be worn, that will use electric impulses to stimulate his muscles by expanding and contracting them to give him a form of exercise that is so important to Mr. Pedersen. Last year’s run we were able to give him $3,000 to use for rehabilitation and any other needs he might have. While we are so proud of how the community came together, we are aiming to surpass last year's goal in support of kirk, but also to support someone's friend, someone's family and most importantly someone in need of your help.

This has been an exciting year for the PLE School Community.  I wanted to take a moment to share some of the wonderful things we have accomplished instructionally this school year with your support!


  • Pleasant Lake Elementary's Statewide Percentile Rank the last several years:

2011/2012 -58%



2014/2015- (percentile rank unavailable due to the transition from the MEAP to the M-STEP)


Our School is now ranked in the top 20% of all schools in the State of Michigan!


  • Pleasant Lake Elementary is a Leader in Me Lighthouse School and once again hosted visitors on Leadership Day from Michigan and surrounding states.  There are over 3,000 Leader in Me schools across the globe and only 289 Lighthouse Schools.  There are roughly a dozen Lighthouse Schools in Michigan.


  • We have been asked to present at this year’s National Principal’s Conference regarding our Response to Intervention Process (RTI) Process and School Literacy Interventions. This is the second time we have been asked to present at the national conference.


  • Our school is included in the Reading Recovery of Council of North America’s brochure that is being dispersed at this year’s National Principal’s Conference.


  • An article in the May/June edition of the Principal will include Pleasant Lake Elementary and our work with Literacy Instruction.  The Principal is a national magazine for educators. PLE staff and administration have been included in national and state literacy publications several times this year.


  • Later this month we will be facilitating a national webinar pertaining to Comprehensive Literacy.  This is one of several national webinars that PLE Staff and Administration have recently participated in.  It is our goal to assist other educators and adminsitrators across the country.


  • Pleasant Lake Elementary received one of only two awards that were handed out at the Reading Recovery State Conference this year.


  • PLE Staff and Administration will be presenting at this year’s Oakland County Effective Practices Conference in June.


The entire Pleasant Lake Elementary Staff would like to thank you for assisting us in reaching our goal of continuous school improvement and providing your child with an exceptional education.  We are proud of the work we have done but are always looking for ways to better service our school community.   It is a true pleasure to have you and your child a part of the PLE School Community!  


Together We Learn, Together We Lead!
