Annual Fund: 7th Grade in the Lead!
Our Annual Fund is well underway and the competition is picking up quickly between the homerooms. 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. 

Please make a gift today 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. 
Monarch Olympians
Last week the 5th graders capped off their study of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece with a celebration of their own Magnolia Olympics. The girls competed in authentic re-enactments of historical athletic events such as foot racing, discus, spear (umbrella) throwing, chariot races (with hobby horses), jumping (jacks), and (arm) wrestling. The girls impressed with their fierce competitiveness and excellent sportsmanship. At the end of the day, they feasted in authentic Greek style with baklava. Congratulations to our olive wreath winners, Sophie Klimchuk and Emily Parker who each medaled in multiple events!

Evening of Recollection for Women
On Tuesday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m. there will be an evening of recollection for women at Magnolia School. 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.
