Principal's Welcome

Welcome to MacArthur Middle School, home of the Marauders!

We have completed a full week of school and next week will be another busy one as we host you for our Back to School nights!

Please keep August 30th (6th grade) and September 1st (7th & 8th grade) open in your calendars to meet with our teachers! The focus of the evening is more of an open-house style where you can come and go as you need between 6:00 to 7:30pm. Please preview the linked information below prior to coming to school. The slides are full of useful information, links, and introductory videos.

For specific information about our new English Language Arts curriculum, StudySync, consider joining Dr. Zaher and I for our MacArthur Coffee session on September 16th!

Thanks for your continued partnership as we join our students in having #MAChasPRIDE!

Parking Lot Safety

Parents, you have been doing an amazing job! Almost everyone is in the building by 8:00! And since you are often the reason the kids tell us why they are late, we appreciate your efforts, keep it up!

Quick reminder for our car drop-off/pick-up families.

Only get in and out of cars along the yellow curb!

Please do not motion for your kids to walk through the parking lot; they may not be seen by motorists.

Also, cell phone use in not allowed by drivers in school zones so please keep the phones down.

6th Grade

6th Grade Mission

6th Grade is a year of transitioning from child to teen. Our mission as a team is to help our students explore that path. Our vision for doing this is to expose students to diverse opportunities and responsibilities along the way.

7th Grade Mission

7th grade is a year of self-discovery and fostering relationships through team-building. Teachers are committed to guiding students to embrace one another and develop their own unique sense of self. Our goal is to encourage students to strive for an identity that models that of a hero or a legend.
