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!
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.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., (December 11, 2019) – Magnolia School District was selected as one of 57 recipients of California’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell Awards, celebrating their 40th year, are presented by the California School Boards Association to promote excellence in public education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices. The awards reflect the depth and breadth of education programs and governance decisions supporting these programs that are necessary to address students’ changing needs.
The Ceramics Club was established three years ago at Juliette Low School of the Arts by Ms. Laura Stock, RSP Teacher. At the time, she was taking advanced ceramics classes at Fullerton College and wanted to share her passion for this art form with students. During the first year of the club’s establishment, Fullerton College provided their kilns to fire students’ projects. During the second year, Ms. Stock purchased a kiln and is now firing the students’ projects at her home studio. In addition to Ms. Stock, Mrs. Hong Nguyen, kindergarten teacher, has assisted with the club, supporting students after school with their unique designs.
