Volunteer & Fundraise
Volunteers are a vital part of our school community and we welcome your contributions. To help ensure students' safety, all prospective volunteers must complete a volunteer verification process. Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) uses the KeepnTrack screening system to screen all visitors/volunteers including parents, PTA members, community members and vendors.
Visit the ACPS website to learn more about how to complete the volunteer application process.
MacArthur Volunteer Opportunities
Once you have completed the volunteer application process and have been approved, you can volunteer through the MacArthur PTA.
Pennies for Patients
Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to help patients battling blood cancer.
As a special project to help us reach our goal, our 5th graders are leading our online giving by participating in the 50 State Challenge. They are working to see if they can get an online donation from each of the 50 states! Visit the website below for more information and find out how to donate.

Besides linking your grocery loyalty cards to MacArthur, you can also earn money for the school PTA by shopping on Amazon via AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The only difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to MacArthur PTA. Although it’s a small percentage, it will definitely add up – especially over the holidays. It’s easy. Visit smile.amazon.com and search for "Douglas MacArthur Elem PTA.” Select it as your charity and shop.
