THE MONARCH

January 10, 2020
Magnolia Monarchs serve the Local Community
 
On the last day before the Christmas break, our Monarchs had the immense privilege of giving their hearts in a day of service to friends and neighbors near Magnolia School. Spending time in the service of others, whether they are our hungry brothers and sisters, lonely elderly residents of a nursing home, or simply next door neighbors in need of a bit of hope and Christmas cheer, is an important way that we can work to build a more beautiful, more fully human society.
While our 2nd graders went caroling about in the neighborhood, our 3rd and 4th grade students spent time serving at the East Spring Branch Food Pantry. Our 5th, 6th, and 7th graders visited area nursing homes to bring songs and Christmas cheer to elderly friends. Throughout the day, all of the girls also completed service projects at Magnolia School, learning that it is also important for us to serve our friends and families at home. 
Following our traditional pizza Friday lunch (with a side of Christmas cookies!), we dismissed for our Christmas holiday. We've returned this week refreshed and reenergized to take on the spring semester! Happy New Year!

Cultivating Greatness: A Purposeful Plan for Parents


We are pleased to announce a wonderful opportunity for our Magnolia School community: on Friday, January 31st at 7:00 p.m., Dr. Pat Fagan will join us to present a talk that will encourage and inspire us in our mission of raising children in truth, beauty, and freedom. Dr. Fagan will speak on "Cultivating Greatness: A Purposeful Plan for Parents." 

Dr. Pat Fagan has been a grade school and college teacher, a therapist specializing in child, family and marital issues, executive director of a small think tank, a Senate staffer, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Family and Social Policy at HHS under President George Herbert Bush, a Senior Fellow of Family and Culture at the Heritage Foundation, and founder and Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Initiative (www.MARRI.us) first at Family Research Council, now at The Catholic University of America.  The thread of continuity in all these has been a pursuit of ways to help the family thrive. He is publisher and editor of Marripedia.org, and the weekly Faith and Family Findings, and has authored over thirty synthesis papers and has commissioned from others dozens of original research projects in marriage, family, child development and religious practice.  He and his wife Theresa have eight children and thirteen grandchildren. 

The evening will begin with wine and cheese at 7:00 p.m., with the talk to begin at 7:30 p.m. This evening is for adults only. Please make plans to join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening of friendship and formation.
