The Magnolia School District is committed to educating the “whole child” with a focus on rigorous academics as well as the arts, music, and physical education for all of our students. We view our parents as partners in education and we offer many opportunities for them to be involved in the education of their children. We are committed to providing a quality education to all students and ensuring that our staff members have the training and resources they need to be successful.
Superintendent's Message
 
Hello Everyone,
 
I would like to sincerely thank all of our staff members for their hard work and dedication this year.
 
They have all embraced our important themes and concepts. 
 
Our focus on Growth Mindset, shifting from "I can't" to "I can't yet," is a powerful theme that turns a negative view into a positive view.
 
Our focus on GRIT is very important. We all know that if we try hard we often accomplish things that we previously thought were impossible.
 
We have taken the concept of kindness to the highest level by practicing infinite acts of kindness--not counting our acts of kindness proves that our actions are intrinsic and sincere.
 
All of our staff members model these themes, which has a noticeably positive impact on our students. They will leave school this year knowing that their effort and hard work will help them achieve in all areas of life, and the acts of kindness that they continue to practice will help them become productive members of our society
 
As we continue with our District-wide mission of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Character, we are all fortunate enough to watch our students succeed through their elementary school experience, which provides them with a solid foundation that will benefit them through their junior high, high school, college, and careers.
 
As we all work together to accomplish the same goal of enriching the lives of children, we are so very fortunate to have exemplary employees who work tirelessly to make our District a truly "great place to make a difference."
 
I hope all of our students and staff members have a restful and relaxing summer.
 
Thank you all for all that you do!
 
Sincerely,
 
Frank Donavan, Ed.D.
