Commemorative Brick Program

Twin Beach and Maple Elementary Schools ended an era as of June, 2012 of serving the students and families of our community after 50 and 40 years respectively. Even though these schools are no longer standing, their legacy remains in the hearts of many. The Foundation for Excellence (FFE), serving Walled Lake Schools, is proud to provide a Commemorative Brick Program and preserve their heritage. 

A limited supply of bricks from both Twin Beach and Maple Elementary Schools have been retained.  Bricks may be purchased with personalized plaques affixed, commemorating each school. 

Commemorative brick orders and questions can be directed to Michelle Bianco, Foundation for Excellence Executive Director; phone (248.956.2116) or email:

Funds raised by the Commemorative Brick Program will benefit students and staff of the Walled Lake School District. The Foundation for Excellence will channel these dollars back into the District and its classrooms through its annual mini-grant program. Grants are awarded within the areas of technology, literacy, leadership and community.

Tax Deduction: Donations made to the FFE may be eligible for a tax deduction. Please note a tax deduction is limited to the excess of the contribution over the value of each brick (suggested value = $30.00) received in exchange for the donation.
