Dear MacArthur Community,

Thank you for joining us yesterday and today for student-led conferences! It was wonderful to see so many families connecting with staff and students taking pride in showcasing their work. Over the last two days, students and their families have used colorful hearts to write down what the most love about Mac and left those hearts posted around the school. Reading these messages has been a great reminder of how fortunate we are to be part of such a wonderful school community. We would also like to thank our PTA for all of their work in organizing and running our book fair. We hope you are looking forward to a relaxing long weekend. As a reminder, there will be no school on Monday, February 17 in observance of the President’s Day holiday.

Decades Day! Tuesday, February 18

Come back to school on Tuesday dressed in clothes and accessories from your favorite decade! We hope to see many decades represented at Mac!
