School System Relies on Community

Recently Mr. Lee attended the Michigan Association for Elementary and Middle School Principals conference and shared with his peers the many amazing partnerships our district has been able to foster.  Alcona Community Schools are grateful for networking with community partners and due to it being the holiday season, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate some of the connections we are fortunate enough to have established to support students.
