Dear Magnolia Family,
In the midst of chaos in our country and in our local education systems, Magnolia has worked incredibly hard to take into account all voices and needs to design a system that is as safe as possible for both staff and families, and a system that will adapt to the ups and downs of the pandemic.
This year, our school is shouldering a number of additional expenses in order to simultaneously do Distance Learning and In-Person Learning.
This year, the money we raise for Families of Magnolia’s Annual Fund will go towards:
- Additional computers to support distance learning for all students
- Extra training for our assistants, who will be taking on a larger role with smaller group size requirements
- Bolstering our outdoor spaces to allow for maximum usage when possible (outdoor tables, shade structures, landscaping to clear overgrown areas)
- Family and Staff emergency funds
- Grants for materials that boost the educational experience and stretch outside of the standard budget (some examples from last year: merry-go-round trikes, World Book Encyclopedias, projector)
- Extra materials for individualized (versus shared) materials in classrooms
The Annual Fund is Families of Magnolia’s largest fundraiser and brings in nearly half of our operating income for the year. We are asking that you partner with us to meet the challenges we are facing and RAISE $8000. Let’s support our community TOGETHER!
