Principal News

Dear MacArthur Families,

Together we completed another great school year. I would like to wish our 5th graders the best of luck as they move onto a new chapter in their lives, at Taft Middle School. On behalf of all our team here at MacArthur we would like to wish everyone an amazing and safe summer.

We will see everyone at our Open House on August 8th.

Have a Great Weekend.

Marian Buchko, Principal
