Field Day

Field Day was an amazing day! We began by watching the Jesse White tumblers who were phenomenal! Then two beautiful 6th grade students sung the National Anthem and then the games began! It was a day filled with SMILES, HOT weather and FUN. This would never be possible without Ms. Lenski and all of her behind-the-scenes work for this day. Thank you to our PTA who so graciously supplied every teacher, staff member and child with a Field Day t-shirt and for paying for the tumblers. Lastly, a huge thank you to all of our volunteers who made this day possible! Thank you for coming out to love your kids and our school! It was truly a wonderful day! Please enjoy the three-day holiday weekend with your families!

Field Day Reminders


Please be sure your child has gym shoes, a water bottle and sunscreen. A hat would be great too!

It’s going to be HOT and AWESOME!

Book Drive and Spanish Speech Contest at Mac

Last week, we celebrated our last PBIS assemblies of the year honoring students for their hard work. We were so fortunate to receive a donation of over 4,700 books for our book drive. The staff at the Rafferty Administration Center collected books for our Student Council book drive to benefit the Alexian Brothers Children’s Hospital in Hoffman Estates. The book drive ends on Friday, May 11, 2018. This was another beautiful project run by our awesome Student Council!

MacArthur hosted the 8th annual Spanish Speech Contest and it was incredible. The students beamed with passion and did an excellent job speaking. The students will be honored at the May 17th Board Meeting!
