MacArthur Hosts International Festival

MacArthur High School celebrated its diversity with a new event. Students and staff hosted the inaugural International Festival Wednesday, April 17.

The event was filled with treats and games unique to each club.

Club de Espanol had a ring toss game set up and sold Aguas Frescas. The French Club sold Beignets. Mac Culinary sold Brats, Meatball Sliders, and Frito Pies.

"The purpose of this event is to celebrate the cultures and diversity at MacArthur, especially as we prepare for Fiesta week," said Principal Pete Martinez.  "We believe that our diversity makes us who we are as a school and as a district."

Students and guests had fun playing games and watching the performances at the event.

MacArthur plans to do this again next year.
