Hello Everyone, We continue planning for the 2020-21 school year. We will be opening school on August 31st with Virtual Learning (Distance Learning). Both State and County guidelines require us to begin school with Virtual Learning. There continues to be 33 counties on the State Watch List. School districts in those counties cannot open for Blended or In Person Learning. As per the California Department of Public Health, those school districts on the State Watch List can open for Blended and/or In Person Learning when their COVID-19 Case Rates drop below 100 per 100,000 people or their Case Rates drop below 25 per 100,000 people and Testing Positivity is below 8%.

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.
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.
