A Visit from the Houston Audubon Society
As part of our study of Natural History, this past Friday Magnolia School enjoyed a presentation from Mary Anne Weber, the Education Director of the Houston Audubon Society. Mary Anne shared with us about the importance of birds within an ecosystem and how we can help preserve their habitats and encourage their presence in our local area. The girls were particularly excited about the Great Horned Owl, Mississippi Kite, and Purple Martin who also came along for a visit. We are looking forward to partnering with the Audubon Society for field trips, additional educational visits, and birding on our new campus. 
Preparations underway for our move to our
Home Campus & House Sorting

The construction on our school facilites on Long Point Road is very close to completion and we will be moving there soon. 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! Beginning this week, we will be unveiling one crest each week, along with a description of that house's particular symbols and virtues.
We are pleased to unveil...The House of Light!



Light is the means by which we see and come to understand the world around us. A Magnolia education will give each girl insight into what it means to be human, made in the image and likeness of a loving God. This unique education will allow girls to see things in a new light and go into the world ready to share this insight with others. Light is a source of warmth, growth, and visibility. Without light, it would be impossible to continue on our way as pilgrims, ultimately moving towards the fullness of light, insight, and understanding that awaits each of us in eternal life.

Annual Fund Update:
3rd remains in the lead, 6th & 7th close behind!

Please submit your contribution and/or pledge as soon as possible through our website, Remember -- as soon as a grade level reaches 100% participation, the girls in that grade will enjoy an ice cream sundae party! 3rd grade is still holding on to the lead, with more than 70% participation in their class. However, 6th and 7th are close behind, with both classes tied at 60%! 

Who will make it to 100% participation first? Hopefully we will have a class enjoying some ice cream next week! 

Thank you for your generosity and prompt response!
Budding Engineers at Magnolia School
Monarchs in Mrs. Thompson's 4th grade studied principles of engineering and design and held a class competition to test the strength of their homemade bridges. Limited to 250 popsicle sticks, wood glue, and a bit of help from their families, these girls accepted the challenge and made some truly impressive structures, all of which were able to hold approximately 10 pounds of weight. They enjoyed testing their creations and cheering each other on as the weights were added. We wouldn't be surprised if some of these girls end up designing our future Houston highways!
