MacArthur is in need of gently used School Uniform pcs to be used when students are in need of a change of clothing at school.

Please keep this in mind as you go through your childrens clothes throughout the summer.

Mostly smaller sizes, (sizes 8 and under) but we appreciate clothing donations of any size. Items include shirts, slacks, shorts, skirts, underwear and socks.


All donations can be brought to the MacArthur Office in September.

Thank you!

Dear MacArthur,
We have exciting news from the City of Lakewood! Beginning on May 10, final construction will take place to reinstall the airplane at Del Valle Park. Therefore, Henry Lee will be closed to traffic from Sunday, May 10 through Monday, May 18th.
You may choose to drop off your student at the front of the school on Centralia or at the open gate on Gondar. We are looking forward to seeing the "landmark" airplane back in place.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

We are very proud of you!

The CORE Survey Results will provide us with essential feedback regarding our school's culture and climate. The information you provided will help us set goals for the upcoming school year! Thank you to each of our respondents.
