That includes fun and exciting field trips at each grade level. We encourage you to join. The membership fee is only $10, but the value to our students is priceless. Please take a moment, if you have not already done so and join our PTA.


We are seeking parents who may be interested in volunteering for our Book fair, Box Tops for Education program, Teacher Appreciation Day, Fit-A-Thon, Dining for Dollars (Family Dinner Nights), Spirit wear, Holiday Shop, MacArthur Movie Nights, Picture Day, Project Shepard and a variety of other PTA sponsored events. Please contact a member of PTA or our school office if you are interested.


Membership does not mean you have to attend any meetings. Please show your MacArthur pride and join today
