General MacArthur's Birthday
Greetings MacArthur Families!
As we got to thinking about our newsletter this month, we thought giving additional background on our namesake would be in order, especially as General MacArthur’s birthday will be celebrated on January 26. General MacArthur was a uniquely talented soldier and was involved in many facets of the military during his fifty plus year career in the Army. He fought in both World Wars and later served in the Korean War. For a few years he also served as the Superintendent at West Point.
General MacArthur did not serve without controversy, as he did not always agree with his contemporaries, however, he served with such distinction as to be awarded the Medal of Honor for his efforts in the Philippines. This honor is made especially unique as General MacArthur’s father had been similarly decorated, making the pair the first father-son recipients of the Medal of Honor.
For MacArthur Elementary School this day has special significance as we celebrate two fifth grade students who have shown exemplary leadership during their elementary experience. During the ceremony, which will be held on February 1st, we share details of the General’s life and accomplishments and conclude with the presentation of the General Douglas MacArthur Award. The families of the award recipients are invited to this special event, however, they come out when the winner is announced to ensure the award is a surprise. Within the coming months the award winner’s names will be added to our MacArthur Award plaque just outside the school’s office door. Please take a look the next time you stop in!

Here are the details for this year’s concert:
