A Magical Night at Magnolia by Moonlight

What a beautiful evening of fun, friendship, and fundraising! It was overwhelming to see the generosity of so many friends and families of Magnolia. Laura Parra did a truly phenomenal job bringing this event to life; we simply could not have done it without her. Thanks are also due to the many parents, faculty and staff, and 7th grade student volunteers, who worked diligently preparing for, running, and wrapping up the event. We are looking forward to many adventures in our new bus, which we will purchase soon! 

Our 6th grade art students' painted bus, which was filled in as donations rolled in over the course of the evening. 

Magnolia School is grateful to the businesses, organizations and individuals that partnered with us to make Magnolia By Moonlight a success.

​At Magnolia School, we believe in the important work of educating girls well so that they are prepared to flourish in society. This work would not be possible without the generous contributions of our benefactors and we offer them our sincerest thanks.

Monarchs are Migrating Home to Magnolia School
We are so happy to announce that we have scheduled our move to our home campus! Following the 12:05 p.m. dismissal tomorrow, Friday, 11/22 and on Saturday, 11/23, we will be moving out of our temporary space at Our Lady of Czestochowa. When we return from our Thanksgiving break on Monday, 12/2, classes will convene at the Magnolia School campus.  

As  part of our preparations for the move, we are also planning for our upcoming "House Sorting Day" in which all of the students, faculty, and staff will learn which house they have been placed in. The four houses of Magnolia School are Light, Thyme, Vine, and Heron. Each house has distinctive characteristics, a virtue particularly associated with it, and we are thrilled to annouce: their own individual house crest!

This week, we are pleased to unveil...The House of Thyme!



The purple flower held securely in the mouth of the heron is a thyme flower. Thyme is a hardy plant, yet it lends a particular softness to a garden. It is fragrant, and its scent along with its purple blooms make it attractive to butterflies and bees. The leaves of the thyme plant have been used over the centuries for culinary, medicinal, and decorative purposes. Thyme is a symbol of courage, as its name is derived from the Greek word “thymus,” of the same meaning. In the face of difficult conditions, it can persist in courageously growing and blossoming.

Annual Fund Update: All Grades at 100% Participation!

Our Annual Fund concludes tomorrow and all of our grades, along with our faculty & staff, have reached 100% participation! Our Monarchs in 2nd & 5th thoroughly enjoyed their ice cream party yesterday and 6th celebrated today! There's more ice cream to come tomorrow! If you haven't yet contributed, please submit your donation and/or pledge today through our website,
