Magnolia Monarchs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science
5th & 7th grades explore the "Cabinet of Curiosities"
This past Monday, the Monarchs fluttered across town to the HMNS and enjoyed a fun, full day at the museum. Several classes were treated to docent led tours of the various exhibits; the Hall of Paleontology and Hall of Ancient Egypt seemed to be the favorites of many of our girls! Our 4th graders spent time in the Cockrell Butterfly Center (which, much to our dismay, does not house Monarch butterflies!).

Lunch was enjoyed outside and the day concluded with a trip across the street to the iconic "Miller Hill," for playtime and the Houston childhood tradition of a good downhill roll! Field trips are an integral and frequent part of the education offered at Magnolia, and we know that many adventures await our girls all around Houston and beyond!

Annual Fund 

Our Annual Fund letter should be arriving in your mailbox soon! The Annual Fund is an opportunity for our community to ensure that Magnolia School will flourish for many years to come. Achieving 100% participation in the Annual Fund from our entire community will demonstrate our shared commitment to Magnolia School and increase our fundraising potential with new donors. 

To this end, we would like to announce a fun incentive to encourage participation from every Magnolia family. Once a grade level achieves the goal of 100% participation, the girls in that grade will get to enjoy an ice cream party hosted by Magnolia School. Let's help our Monarchs get to enjoy some sweet treats as soon as possible by contributing today to the Annual Fund!

Magnolia School Wish List
As we are settling in to our first semester, our teachers have come together to create an Amazon wish list of books and supplies for our students. Please consider donating one (or more!) of the items off of this list, which will be updated regularly. If you would like to donate a book in honor of a loved one, please send that information as a note with your order through Amazon.
Thank you for your generosity!
