THE MONARCH

October 10, 2019
Annual Fund - Let's earn some ice cream for our Monarchs!

Our Annual Fund has started and we are excited to announce a fun incentive to encourage full participation from all of our Magnolia families! As soon as a grade level reaches 100% participation in the Annual Fund, the girls in that grade level will enjoy an ice cream sundae party hosted by Magnolia School! The party will include “the works” for sundaes—waffle bowls, toppings, whipped cream, and more! We want the girls to enjoy a delicious treat and a break with their classmates to celebrate full participation in contributing to the Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund is an essential way for Magnolia to narrow the gap between tuition revenue and our operating expenses. Full participation from the entire community will demonstrate our shared commitment to Magnolia and open future fundraising possibilities.

We will have a poster at school showing the percentages of participation by class so the girls can see how close they are to enjoying a delicious and FUN sundae party! As of this afternoon, the faculty and staff are in the lead for participation; we are sure the girls will want to catch up to their teachers as soon as possible!

Please submit your contribution and/or pledge as soon as possible through our website,
https://www.magnoliaschool.org/support-us. Thank you for your generosity and prompt response!
 
Harvest Day
 
Come join Magnolia School for family fun at our upcoming Harvest Day! On Saturday, October 26th from 2-5 p.m., we will gather on the grounds of our temporary location at Our Lady of Czestochowa to enjoy some autumnal activities for the whole family. Enjoy games, prizes, a costume contest for children under 10, and watch our Monarch volleyball team compete against some of our brave faculty and staff! See you there!
The Art of Living for Women
 
The Art of Living is a series of seminars on the art of creating a home that fosters human flourishing. The seminars are founded on the dignity of the person, marriage and family, and embrace all women regardless of religious, racial, ethnic or economic status. Our modular curriculum combines classes, demonstrations and hands-on experiences, giving women the skills they need to care for their family with confidence and artistry. For more information, please visit https://www.sheridancenter.org/programs/married-professional/art-of-living-for-women.  



Women are called to bring to the family, to society and to the Church, characteristics which are their own and which they alone can give: their gentle warmth and untiring generosity, their love for detail, their quick-wittedness and intuition, their simple and deep piety, their constancy...

The excitement of going to Magnolia School extends to Monarch families as well!  Charlotte’s little sister Sheridan insisted on wearing her own Monarch t-shirt and bringing her lunch box when dropping off her sister for school last week.  She was hoping that somehow there would be space for her at Magnolia School too that day ~ we can’t wait to have Sheridan join us in a few years!
