Accelerated Reader Home Connect

Accelerated Reader at Home

AR continues to be an exciting way for students to see their progress in reading. Whether through points per book or the number of words in a book, students gain self-confidence and improve their reading skills. You can team up with your child by monitoring their AR progress at home. Whether it’s looking at the books they’ve read and scores achieved on the books, or seeing their AR reading level, you can team up!  You will need the following:

Your child’s school username; and their password. Log onto: https://hosted57.renlearn.com/266967. It’s that simple! Try it!

 

Character Counts at Magnolia!

   Here at Magnolia, we value student character as well as achievement. We focus on one character trait each month  To remind us to practice positive character, we call Wednesday, “Character Day” We wear the color associated with the character we are studying. Please see the colors below for each character trait we will study this year.

  Students who are caught demonstrating positive character on any day, receive Mustang Madness tickets.  Tickets will go into a classroom drawing and one winner a month will be chosen to invite a friend to “Lunch with the Principal”. Also, one student a month is chosen by their teacher to receive recognition for exemplifying the character of the month.

 

September – Attentiveness – Green

October – Kindness – Purple

November – Thankfulness – Brown

December – Dependability – White

January – Self-Control – Red

February – Truthfulness – Orange

March – Respect – Black

April – Goodness – Purple

May – Patience - Yellow

3rd Graders Receive Free Dictionaries


Members of the Elks Lodge visited Magnolia Elementary on Thursday November 20 to distribute dictionaries to all third graders.

The gift was very generous of the Elks. The children at Magnolia were very excited to receive their new dictionaries. The member of the ELKS lodge said that the goal of the program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners.

Since educators consider third grade the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, the Elks annually give out personal dictionaries to third graders.

Letter From the Principal


Dear Partners in Learning,

The staff and I welcome you to an exciting year at Magnolia School! We look forward to a successful school year. We are committed to collaborating with our families this year and forming partnerships that will support the educational life of our students.

You can help your child’s academic achievement by spending at least ten minutes each day talking and asking critical thinking questions like:

1. Why do you think that…?

2. What is the relationship between…?

In addition, please encourage your child to read 20 to 30 minutes every day. The more hours students spend reading, the greater the increase in their vocabulary!

There have been a few staff changes since last year. We are pleased to welcome and introduce these new staff members:

• Mr. Derrick Riggs, 4/5 teacher

• Ms. Megan Gustafson, 3/4 teacher

• Mrs. Irene Nava, 2/3 teacher

• Ms. Hanna McKee, Preschool teacher

• Ms. Janet Cardenas, Preschool teacher

Thank you for your supporting your child’s education. Together we make a positive difference in the lives of our shared students. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 626-815-5800 or email at anorman@azusa.org.

Sincerely,

Alexis Norman

Principal
