Holiday spirit in the halls

Christmas is less than two weeks away, and the holiday spirit is starting to infiltrate its way into MacArthur’s halls. Both students and staff have been participating in Student Council’s Holiday Dress Up Days in which five different Christmas themes are picked for the different days of the week for dressing up.
