Monarchs Learning in the Home Stretch!
It is difficult to believe, but May is upon us! While this upcoming month will certainly look a little different than a typical May, here at Magnolia School we are looking forward to several creative, fun activities that will round out our inaugural academic year. We hope you can "join" us in celebrating our Monarchs and their accomplishments, raising some much needed funds for a local charity, and supporting the businesses of several friends of our community. 
For current Magnolia families: if you have stories or pictures of how you are learning and growing as a family during this time, please send them to We'd love to share the beautiful things our girls are creating during this unique time! 
Run "with" us Next Weekend:
Virtual 5k Benefitting Meals on Wheels
Join the Magnolia Run Club for a Virtual 5k to benefit Meals on Wheels next weekend, May 9th or 10th.  All families and friends of Magnolia are invited to participate!

A Virtual 5k is a 3.1 mile race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog or walk in your neighborhood, on a trail or on a treadmill if you’d like to stay inside! This is a family friendly event; all ages can participate. 

Registration fee: $10 – All proceeds raised will be donated to Houston’s Meals on Wheels.

Once you’ve completed the race, take a picture with our Finisher’s sign (found on our website) and email it to:

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Leger at

​Please keep in mind social distancing while running.

BCN and MAD are Spanish inspired local restaurants owned by gracious friends of Magnolia School. Order a delicious meal and tell them you heard about them from Magnolia! They would love to meet you and serve you and your family.
Our First Future Magnolia Monarch

3rd grader Therese has the distinct honor of being the big sister of Magnolia School's First Future Monarch! Her little sister Cecilia was born earlier this year and made a visit to campus prior to Spring Break. Therese and her family are proud members of the House of Thyme, and accessorized Cecilia's outfit appropriately with a purple bow to show their House spirit!

Congratulations to Therese and her whole family! 
A Heartfelt "Thank You!" to The Urban Foresters

During this time away from campus, we became aware of the unfortunate fact that several of our trees had died and, in the interest of safety, needed to be removed. The arborists at The Urban Foresters generously donated their time, expertise, and professional services to Magnolia School to handle this project for us. We are so grateful for their generosity and impressed by their professionalism and skill. Please consider contacting them and utilizing their services if you are in need of tree maintenance at your home or business.
