On behalf of the Mac staff, we wish all of our families a wonderful summer break together! This school year has been filled with many fun memories to remember. Our students displayed an amazing amount of work ethic this year as they took on challenges and continued to grow both academically and socially. We are proud of each and every one of our Toros for their hard work! We wish our departing sixth graders the best of luck in junior high and look forward to welcoming our soon to be new kinder Toros along with all of our returning Toros this upcoming school year!

Down below are a few key dates to add to your calendar looking ahead to the 2016-2017 school year. As always, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. It has been a blessing and privilege to serve as your principal this school year and look forward to the opportunity to serve our MacArthur community once again for the 2016-2017 school year.

Enjoy your summer and continue living a life to remember with your precious family!
