Mastery. Acceptance. Confidence.
All District Super Bowl Spirit Week
Our spring pictures are on Wednesday. Since we schedule these in the spring the prior year, we could not have predicted another Super Bowl run for the Chiefs. We are unable to reschedule pictures on such short notice. Our pictures this round include our class pictures (full length shots). Therefore, if your child is planning to participate in the PJ spirit day, please send in the PJs to wear & change into after the pictures are taken with their class.

Student Council Service Project- Pennies for Patients
Each year, our student council (elected 4th and 5th graders) propose service projects to the Board of Education in August for approval. Working with our Student Council sponsor, Becky Moritz, they determine how they would like for our school community to serve the wider community. In the winter, we participated in the Toys for Tots and food drive. Our spring project is to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their Dare to Dream campaign.
Students and staff at MacArthur donate money toward the cause. Our student council officers brainstormed a "menu" of items they thought students and staff would enjoy in exchange for a monetary donation:
- popcorn Fridays- each Friday, students can donate for a bag of popcorn
- play a song on the announcements
- PJ Fridays- wear PJs on Fridays
- job share with me for 30 minutes
- come for a visit with me (of course, all children have access to talk with me whenever they need!)
Participation is optional & no one is required to send in money for this event. I'd like to thank our STUCO for their planning and preparation for this project! They will be busy during the next month making sure everything stays organized!
