A Message from the  PTA President

Can you say “March Madness”? It has been a crazy year! We are approaching the one year anniversary of the day school shut down and we started our virtual learning adventure. Who would have ever guessed that we would be out of brick-and-mortar school for over one year? Now we are getting ready for a new learning adventure.

 

Choosing to send our students back to school with the hybrid model or continuing with virtual learning comes with a whole new set of nerves, fears, and excitement.  I am excited about getting back into a routine and having a reason to get dressed everyday, but I am also nervous. Will the children be safe? Will 2 1/2 hours of instruction be enough? Will teachers and students be able to adapt to the new guidelines & setting? I know I am not the only parent with these concerns. 

 

As I struggled with my feelings, I started to think of my daughters and how they have handled this last year. That’s when it dawned on me that our kids are so brave and resilient. I want to give a giant shout out to all of our MacArthur students. You are a strong, tough, hard-working group of kids. You have been amazing during this past year. This has not been easy and you have shown strength and the ability to work through tough times.  You smart kiddos are making history right now. Kids have never done school via Zoom from their homes. Never have your teachers taught from an empty classroom on a computer. This chapter in your life will one day be a chapter in history books. MacArthur Eagles can do amazing things.

 

I am so proud of all of our MacArthur families; we can do hard thing together.  Mrs. Yepez, our teachers, and LBUSD have implemented a safe environment for our kids. I like to think that we as a community are making progress toward returning to a “new” normal way of life. For those of you returning I wish you lots of health and success. For our families staying virtual, I wish you continued health and success and I look forward to seeing you in the fall!

 

PTA has lots of good things going on in March. It really is going to be March Madness for all of us! We hope to bring some fun times for all of our families to look forward to.

We got this! Let’s go Eagles!
