MacArthur News & Information
Elementary students learn about what makes a champion of character during assembly

Students in K-5 from Horace Mann, MacArthur and Thomas Jefferson schools gathered at West Middle School for a motivational media assembly Sept. 15. The assembly called Champions and Stars encouraged, inspired and motivated students and educators to rise up and strive for personal excellence, responsibility and leadership in everyday life.

MacArthur Rising

On the afternoon of August 4, Binghamton City School District Board of Education members had a chance to get a “sneak preview” of the new MacArthur Elementary School. Progress on the new facility has moved along well during the spring/summer months and the building is currently on schedule for a November opening. Visitors toured areas of the structure which are beginning to take on recognizable forms as state-of-the-art classrooms, a “gymatorium”, cafeteria, library media center, common use and performance areas.

MacArthur staff begin "reunification"

Seventy-two staff from MacArthur Elementary School decided to organize a strike on a warm June afternoon ... bowling for one, that is!
