THE MONARCH

September 24, 2020
3rd Grade Digs into Ancient History
Our 3rd grade Monarchs recently began some lessons on tablets, but not in the way you might assume would be the case in 2020! As part of their study of ancient history, culture, and civilizations, the girls used local Houston clay to sculpt tablets and pottery. The girls painted their pieces which will be used next week in a merchant market to further their understanding of commerce in the ancient world. Math will be integrated as they develop a class currency and their study of plants in science fit in nicely with discussions of how different types of soil provide advantages or disadvantages for growth. They are looking forward to a full year of hands-on building and learning!

Annual Fund: Let's go, Monarchs!
 
Our Annual Fund has started! Please make a gift today (https://event.auctria.com/7a7fd706-e29c-480d-b37f-18037aa3025e/) to help us reach our goals of raising $200,000 and receiving 100% participation from our Magnolia community. The Annual Fund is a key tool to ensure that the beauty of a Magnolia education is available this year and for many years to come. 

The first homeroom class to reach 100% participation will earn a Chick-fil-A lunch and ice cream party! Additionally, all students will receive a bracelet embossed with our theme for the year, "Gratitude," upon receipt of their family's donation. 
6th Grade History Hunts Down an Adventure

Ms. Leger's 6th graders recently enjoyed an exciting class as the entire campus was transformed in a scavenger hunt to help them learn and apply the 5 themes of geography. The girls mastered the concepts of location, place, human-environment interaction, region, and movement through clues and critical thinking. The clues incorporated our own school culture and geography, including things such as our Magnolia tree which helps sort girls into their Houses on Sorting Day. On top of the geography skills, the girls also learned that you don't have to go too far from home for a wonderful adventure.
Evening of Recollection -- Please Save the Date!

On Tuesday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m. there will be an evening of recollection for women at Magnolia School. Sign-up information will be shared soon.

The recollection is a a time for personal prayer and reflection on topics that have to do with Christian life. It is commonly referred to as a "mini-retreat" that is comprised of 2 half-hour meditations and a short, formative talk.  The recollection allows for silent, personal prayer and reflection with an opportunity to engage in spiritual direction and/or sacramental confession.
