Examining Your Medicine Cabinet

This month McClure is focusing on Drug/Medication Awareness


  • You wouldn’t eat spoiled food but when it comes to your medicine cabinet, you probably aren’t as picky. Expired medications are not only less effective, but in some cases, can be dangerous. Here are some tips to use when evaluating the contents of your medicine cabinet.
  • In doubt? Throw it out: Always discard expired medications. No expiration date? Throw it out!
  • Keep your medicine in a cool, dry location: Heat & humidity can cause medications to deteriorate more quickly.
  • Store medications in their original containers: This allows you to easily find the expiration date and dosage information.
  • Review patient information you receive with your medications: This provides much needed information on your prescription medications.
  • Keeping your medicine cabinet in tip-top shape will help you stay that way too!


Taste It Tuesday! October 15th

Every month, MISD offers a new food for our kids to try! Please encourage your kids to participate!


Pink Out for Breast Cancer Awareness, Friday, October 18th

A Note from Coach Hood

Thank You McClure Families -

Participation in the Crape Myrtle Run is one of McClure’s best traditions! Thank you to all of our McClure families and Teachers for supporting this race and showing such AMAZING school spirit! McClure came in 2nd place this year, with Walker Elementary having 215 people register to McClure’s 212. WOW!! That was so close!


McClure will be back strong next to reclaim that 1st place trophy! Thank you to everyone that was able to attend. It was such a fun day!
