The 2019 Magnolia School District Spelling Bee was a memorable one! The rain may have delayed the Bee, but it certainly did not stop it. The two top spellers from each of our 9 schools participated in the very intense competition. Students successfully spelled words such as extravaganza, gregarious, capricious and cauliflower.
On Saturday, December 8, almost 350 fourth through sixth grade students attended a four hour Saturday School session. Offered for the first time in Magnolia School District, this four hour session was designed to provide students with fun, engaging learning activities while making up some lost learning time from being absent.
In a few short years, Magnolia’s Spanish Dual Immersion program has grown from just 55 students to almost 380. The program began in 2012 with just two kindergarten classes and now it has expanded to all grade levels through 6th grade. Magnolia has implemented the 90/10 model of instruction which means that in kindergarten the instruction is received 90% in Spanish and 10% in English. English instruction increases by 10% each year so by fourth grade, the instruction is presented 50% in each language.
This Saturday, October 6, 2018, is our 3rd Annual MEEF Fit and Fun 5K Run. There is time to sign up for this great event that benefits all our students and teachers. For tickets and more information please click on the "Read Full Story" green button below.
Thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club of Anaheim, Magnolia students received over 360 new backpacks full of school supplies.
