A Message from the PTA President
Welcome back MacArthur returning families and welcome to our new families! This school year has started off crazy busy! I personally forgot all the excitement and nerves of going back to school, but it’s been awesome. I’m so thankful to have children back on campus. Seeing the kids excited and happy to be together has been good for my heart! It's amazing to see how the children have grown.
For my family it’s been an adjustment. The days are long. We are relearning to sit still, not having a snack every 10 minutes, and putting on school clothes. Our girls come home tired and starving! They love sharing the day’s events. Talking about what they did in class, what they learned, what playground equipment they played on or how many handball games they won. It’s been great to hear about the day’s events over dinner. They go to bed excited and looking forward to the next day. I’m hopeful to see what the year brings and hope to be able to host some PTA events very soon!
The PTA has continued to meet and plan ways we can support our students, teachers and parents. We will be hosting our first PTA Association meeting on Tuesday September 28 via zoom at 6:30. We will discuss programs, fundraisers, membership, spirit wear, home reading club and much more. I hope you will join us.
I would like to take a minute to thank MacArthur teachers and staff. This year is a new experience for everyone and we are very fortunate to have great, hardworking, dedicated, loving, understanding educators at our school.
The PTA has adopted a new word it is Flexible: Able to be easily modified to respond to altered circumstances or conditions. We choose this word knowing things would be different this year and that we all need to be flexible with events, programs, and fundraising.
I’d like to introduce some new, amazing ladies to the PTA executive board, Priscilla Funemayor (VP of Programs), Adrea Pino (Historian), and Joanna Annesley (Home Reading Club Chair). I’m honored to be working with these ladies as well as all the returning board members.
Our theme for PTA this year is “Help our PTA Grow” and we’d love 100% participation. Joining PTA only costs $10 and helps support our school. I am looking forward to a great year! Please reach out if you have any questions. I hope to see many of you at our PTA Association meeting on September 28th .
All the best,
PTA President 2021-2022
