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!
