Dear Parents/Guardians of Magnolia Elementary School:

As summer vacation comes to an end, now would be the perfect opportunity to take a few minutes to focus on the 2018-2019 school year. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  We know that a strong partnership will make a great difference in your child’s education.  As partners we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.  We want our students to believe all goals they set for themselves are achievable. 


Magnolia will continue to build upon our framework for building a school program and culture cultivating  positive and successful teaching, along with, motivating student success and parent involvement.  We will continue to build upon existing programs, improving as we go by implementing new incentives to extend and refine the knowledge of our students.

In order to make a smooth transition from the summer vacation, you are being provided information regarding Student Orientations, Open House, the school supply list, transportation, school calendar, and lunch prices. Please note this information is posted on the school’s website.


Parents are encouraged to volunteer at least one hour a week or participate in at least three of their child’s activities during the year.  Your children need you. Parents are welcomed to become active members of the Parent Teacher Advisory Council (PTAC). The focus of PTAC is to ensure parent/community engagement through the spirit of volunteering.                                       

Please support Magnolia by getting involved in your child’s education at every level. Your children are #Extraordinary and deserve the best!


Phyllis L. Gillens
