The Magnolia School District is committed to educating the “whole child” with a focus on rigorous academics as well as the arts, music, and technology 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.
Welcome back to the 2018/19 school year. I am looking forward to another productive and successful school year. We continue to focus on the whole child with our incredible music, arts, rigorous academics and social-emotional learning programs. We will also continue our strong focus on technology as we provide our students with the foundational skills they will need for their secondary education, college and careers.
As we begin our 124th year of providing a high-quality education we should all take pride in the great work we do. Nearly all of our teachers have either completed their Magnolia School District STEM Certification or they are in the process of completing this rigorous program. Our campuses are clean, efficient and safe. We continue to serve hot and fresh food that is freshly prepared every school day. We are now a clean energy school district with solar power and energy efficient lights and air conditioning. We have several new school buses and soon we will have two additional busses that are powered by electricity. Sometimes it is difficult to understand how progressive we are until we reflect on all that we have and all that we do.
I would like to thank and congratulate all of you for all that you do to enrich the lives of our students. Have a wonderful school year!
Frank Donavan, Ed.D.
