Caring Matters

At MacArthur Elementary caring is one of our core values. This past year our Assistant Principal Mr. Okie has been out on leave while caring for his son, who was diagnosed with leukemia. The MacArthur Community has come together to support Mr. Okie, and we are extremely proud of two students who have exemplified what the caring core value represents at MacArthur. Malcom Tolbert and Wesley O’Connor, both in 3rd grade, decided they would like to help their peers and the community. Each student wrote a note asking to help kids fighting cancer, and placed them in Mrs. Gately’s mailbox. Included with each note was a donation of two $1.00 bills.

This selfless act of caring gave us the idea to involve the entire school! On November 9th the school will take part in a Jimmy Fund Rally day. Students are asked to bring a small donation for the Jimmy Fund, and to honor their act of caring they can wear their favorite sports gear, including hats. Donations of any size are welcome and encouraged! A representative from the Jimmy Fund will attend the morning meeting on November 9th to discuss the amazing impact community support has on the fight against cancer.

In conjunction we have created the MacArthur Elementary Jimmy Fund website which will accept donations to promote random acts of caring amongst the school community. Donations can be made online between November 9th and December 6th. On December 7th the students will attend a follow up morning meeting where the Jimmy Fund representative will return to share the fund raising results for this wonderful cause with the school!

We invite all students, staff, parents and families to share the site and raise awareness for this great cause, and to demonstrate how a simple act of caring by 2 individuals can create a lasting impression for many people!

If enough people give to our team's fundraising, we could win great prizes like Sox hats, tickets, or an in-person visit from the 2017 Rally Red Sox Spokesplayer!
