THE MONARCH

April 2, 2020
Magnolia School Update

The Monarch has been quiet the past few weeks as our Magnolia School community enjoyed Spring Break and adjusted to new ways of learning and being together with our families at home. Over the coming weeks, as always, we plan to give you a glimpse of what our Monarchs are learning and experiencing. 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 communications@magnoliaschool.org. We'd love to share the beautiful things our girls are creating during this unique time! 

Most importantly, our prayers remain with everyone who is suffering from the Coronavirus in any way, along with all of the healthcare professionals and essential workers in our community who are holding the line for us all. May God bless you all throughout this challenging time.
4th Grade Storms the Castle
As part of their ongoing study of medieval history, our 4th grade Monarchs have been studying castles. Seen below at Magnolia School with their own castle creations, the girls have learned all about the construction and uses of castles in the medieval era. Prior to Spring Break, they enjoyed a field trip to Newman's Castle in Bellville, Texas, which "features a moat, a massive working 3,000 lb. drawbridge with an accompanying portcullis, a chapel, five round corner turrets, a courtyard, and a central keep with a dramatic view of the surrounding lands." It was a full day of fun and adventure for these young ladies!
Monarchs Race to the Finish Line

Earlier this month, several members of our Running Club, completed their first 5k in downtown at Run Houston! Minute Maid Park. We are proud of the girls for their hard work in training and preparing for the race and for their accomplishments the day of. Way to go, Monarchs!

The week will include art, music, basketball, volleyball, cornhole, chess, checkers, and much, much more. Campers will hear inspiring stories of women who have paved the way for future explorers.
