Superintendent Update 7/27/21

While the Pandemic changed the way we educate children in the Magnolia School District, it did not change our focus on high expectations, rigorous academics and the importance of social-emotional learning. When we transitioned from virtual learning to our hybrid model last April, students and staff were very happy to return to school. We added additional custodial, health, counseling, food services and instructional support to ensure our schools are safe and the needs of our students and staff are met.

Preschool Students Perform At-Home Learning

We are proud of our Magnolia School District preschool students, who are engaged in fun and educational learning at home with their families! Last week, students were given a Friday challenge of “Who could build the tallest structure?” The students and their families created structures using household materials. Once constructed, they measured and submitted the height of their structures to the classroom teacher. The winner with the tallest structure received the honor of selecting the Fun Friday songs to be played in their weekly class Zoom meeting. Check out these awesome structures that the students and their families constructed!

Magnolia School District Continues its Hard Work to Serve the Needs of Our Students and Families

Magnolia School District continues its partnership with Giving Children Hope, an organization that delivers weekly backpacks to some of our District families. Normally, these backpacks are filled with food and put together by members of their organization and then distributed to Magnolia School District families.

During these unprecedented times, Giving Children Hope is able to deliver the food to our District, but is not able to fill the backpacks. We are very proud of our teachers, who step in and volunteer their time to fill these backpacks for our families each week. The District is so thankful to have such amazing and dedicated employees. The teachers response to the call for help was so overwhelming some of the volunteers had to be turned away. Teachers help assemble the food bags and distribute them to our families.

Students Make Lasting Connections with their Community

Lord Baden-Powell Elementary School students continue to inspire kindness around their community. This year student council members, with the leadership of Mrs. Katrina Barkley and Mrs. Stacy Bugaren, made lasting connections with some of the residents of Brookdale Senior Living in Anaheim. Mrs. Barkley worked as our liaison to Brookdale, arranging visits and coordinating students and staff. Mrs. Bugaren managed the Student Council students to support visits to BP and arranged special projects that were delivered to Brookdale. Their collaborative work is the backbone of this partnership.
