SACRAMENTO, Calif., (December 11, 2019) – Magnolia School District was selected as one of 57 recipients of California’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell Awards, celebrating their 40th year, are presented by the California School Boards Association to promote excellence in public education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices. The awards reflect the depth and breadth of education programs and governance decisions supporting these programs that are necessary to address students’ changing needs.
The top two spellers from each school participated in the annual Magnolia School District Spelling Bee. It was a very intense competition with words like tapestry, surmised, and trifecta. Congratulations to Bryan Pham from Walt Disney Elementary School who earned top honors as this year’s champion.
We are proud to announce that three Magnolia School District schools have been named as California Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education. Dr. Peter Marshall School, Juliette Low School of the Arts, and Walt Disney School have received this honor based on outstanding student academic achievement, as well as strong student attendance and and low suspension rates.
The Cops 4 Kids gift-wrapping event at the Anaheim Police Station was a tremendous success. This year Cops 4 Kids is sponsoring 40 of Magnolia families, including those who have had significant losses, such as losing their home or loved one.
On Saturday September 28th, approximately 140 students from the Magnolia School District attended a free STEM event held at the Muzeo in Anaheim. The event was put on by Andrew Needles, the CEO of Clarkson Technologies. Younger students had fun learning about polarity in batteries as they raced toy cars using magnets to propel them.
Thanks to a fantastic partnership between the Magnolia School District, Love Anaheim, the Magnolia Baptist Church and the Anaheim Rotary Club, 100 hygiene kits were assembled and donated to Project HERO.
