As you are aware, at our Board Meeting last week we discussed our School Reopening Plan and a comprehensive guide that we have developed titled "Family and Student Return to School Guide." Both of these documents are now posted on our website under the COVID-19 tab. We have also posted the weekly Coronavirus Test Positivity Rates that are published by the Orange County Health Care Agency.
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.
