Monarchs & Murder in the Cathedral
          It's 1170 in Ms. Leger's 8th grade Western Civilization class, and our Monarchs are encountering the murder of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. Having engaged in conflict with the king, Becket is murdered in his own Cathedral, and canonized shortly after his death. Our Monarchs are seen here preparing to perform a dramatic reading of an adaptation of T.S. Eliot's famous account of this piece of history, Murder in the Cathedral. In the absence of a Cathedral on campus, our Monarchs creatively staged the playground for their retelling, complete with swords and shields. Suffice it to say, there's never a dull moment at Magnolia, and one must always keep a watch out for trouble!
Welcoming the Newest Member of the Magnolia Family


Monarch big sisters Celeste and Stefania welcomed the newest future Magnolia Monarch, Miss Chiara Marie on Monday, January 25th. They couldn't be more smitten with their new sister, and we can't wait to welcome Chiara to Magnolia in just a few years. Congratulations, girls!

On January 28th, the Church celebrates St. Thomas Aquinas, whose nickname was "the dumb ox," because of his quiet nature and mannerisms. Far from dumb, Aquinas is now known as the "Angelic Doctor," and has secured his place in history among the finest Catholic theologians and philosophers.
