Red Ribbon Week

RED RIBBON WEEK is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program.

Today, millions of people celebrate Red Ribbon Week by wearing red ribbons, participating in community anti-drug events, and pledging to live drug-free lives.

Maconce Recycling Center

Maconce is a Green School! We are recycling and keeping our Earth healthy. There is a Recycling Center in our school. It is located by our Library in the hallway. If you have batteries (not car batteries), old broken crayons, printer cartridges, or glue sticks and/or bottles, please bring them in and deposit them in our Recycle Center! It's Lorax Theme and promotes a Healthy Earth! We want to continue to be a Michigan Green School. If you still get a paper copy of any newsletters and you have an email address, please consider letting us email you a copy to conserve paper and ink.
Happy Recycling!
