From the Principal......

Greetings to you all!


Thank you for your continued progress towards completing your assessments for STAR 360 and semester benchmarks. We also appreciate your patience with the login and rostering issues with STAR, Lexia and Mastery Connect. It seems part of the issues surfaced after we lost power at the data center with the ice storm. Hopefully we should be back on track soon, if not already.

Teacher's Christmas Wish List

We are encouraging every certified teacher at Arthur Elementary to submit your Christmas Wish List on Donors Choose! For those that aren't familiar, our school is generously supported by the McLaughlin Family Foundation. We couldn't do some of the things we are blessed to do without their continuous support. In a recent luncheon with their Board of Directors, we were asked to please ask you all to post projects on Donors Choose. The McLaughlin family and their partners faithfully and actively search for Arthur projects to fund. We also suspect that there will soon be an end of the year mass flash funding and matches. We don't want to miss out on this tremendous opportunity. The more we post, the more that is funded, The more that is funded, the more you are eligible to post. If you need some ideas, please let us know. We'd like to help you! If you don't have a classroom project consider a project that would benefit a school-wide need. For example : school uniforms, iPad headphones, classroom library, standup desks, classroom makeover, field trips, etc. We will continue to get additional information and support, but in the meantime, please submit a project as soon as possible.
