"Den Leader" of the Month Congratulations to Mrs. Susan Wrobel! Maconce Bears Staff Den Leader of the Month. Mrs. Wrobel was recognized by her peers as someone who goes above and beyond everyday! Mrs. Wrobel is the AB District Indian Education Liason. She wears many hats in our building and is always willing to help a student or staff member. She's the first smile many students see in the morning and the last wave many see as busses pull out of the parking lot. She travels this district as well as Algonac offering workshops on Michigan History and Indian Education. We are the bears! Congratulations Mrs. Wrobel your kindness does not go unnoticed.

Meet our new Principal As always, a new school year brings about change. My name is Jay Seletsky and I am very excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year with you as Principal at Maconce! I have spent the last two years at Middle School North as the Assistant Principal, as well as the previous two years at Middle School South in the same position. I am looking forward to meeting all of you soon, as I have heard nothing but positive comments about the Maconce students, staff and parents! I know Mrs. Milton - Hoffman will be deeply missed as she has done amazing things in this building, and I wish her nothing but the best in her new adventures at Lighthouse.
Severe Weather Preparedness From Michigan State Police: Please take a few minutes to review the Family Emergency Plan with your family. You can print this resource at www.michigan.gov/MIREADY and complete it with their families at home. This document will help families create a communication plan to use in the event of severe weather or any other emergency situation. We also have an educational coloring book featuring Prep and Parey available for download and print. While Tornados do not give us warning when they will strike, we can take steps to be more prepared. A prepared community is a resilient community. http://www.michigan.gov/msp/0,4643,7-123-72297_60152_68558-450845--,00.html

November 5th Election Information

2019-2020 School Calendar

The proposed amendment to Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act was enacted effective October 1, 2019 and now allows school districts to count qualifying teacher professional development towards pupil instructional time.  Accordingly, we can now confirm that the alternate calendar that was previously shared is now approved and finalized.

November 5th Election is Important for Student Funding

Anchor Bay has a non-homestead millage restoration on the November 5th ballot. This two-mill restoration will allow the district to restore the 18 mills levied on non-homestead properties and hedge against future Headlee rollbacks through 2024.
