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.
Congratulations MacArthur Chess Team on your first place finish among elementary schools! Last Thursday, our Eagles traveled to Lakewood High School to challenge a dominant Lancer team. Our students competed to the end in a rematch from earlier in the tournament. Our team will be celebrated at the Call to Order Assembly on Thursday, April 2 where they will each receive a first place trophy. Congratulations to the Elementary Champions Robert Beard, David Dias, Ethan Ganong, Gabrielle Lawrence, Joshua Lawrence, Annamarie Troung, and Benjamin Troung.
