Hello Everyone, As you are aware, at our Board Meeting last week we discussed the possibility of reopening our schools next month. Fortunately, the COVID-19 Test Positivity Rates in our area continue to decline. We will continue to carefully monitor and analyze the Positivity Rates before making a final decision on our reopening date. We will be holding a Special Board Meeting on November 5, 2020 to continue our discussion and finalize our School Reopening Plan.
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!
Dear Marshall Community, We hope you and your family are safe and well. In these past months, our school community has been tried and tested in many ways. The one thing that has kept us PAWsitive is knowing that our little Scotties depend on us. We created a video as a small expression of how much they are loved and missed (please click on the link to view our short clip).
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.
Magnolia School District Superintendent Dr. Donavan inspired all schools to participate in The Great Kindness Challenge where we joined over 13 million students, over 24,000 schools in over 110 countries.
