Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come.
The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17

Phy Ed Teacher

I am very pleased to announce that we have hired a new Phy Ed Teacher. Eric Reyes will be starting on September 7, our first PE day of the year. He feels called to have a positive impact on students’ lives and will be a wonderful addition to our staff of caring, Christian teachers. Eric is very excited about joining the Magnuson team.

Root Beer Floats

On Friday, September 9, at 3:30 pm, we will have an all-school Root Beer Float Social. Please join the fun and take the opportunity to connect with other Magnuson families and welcome our new students and their families!

AmazonSmile

When shopping on Amazon, be sure to start with AmazonSmile, and designate Magnuson Christian School as your charity.

Science

We are ready to begin our 2016-2017 focus on STEM. The resources we were able to obtain with our grant from MISF are ready and waiting for student hands to manipulate. FOSS kits have arrived in every classroom and teachers are excited to dig into them to bring additional hands-on science experiences to their students.

Meet the Teacher

I am excited to see everyone at Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday, September 1. It is a great opportunity for you and your children to meet their new teachers, see their classrooms, reconnect with friends, bring in supplies, and get settled into their new spaces.
Our Kick-Off Meeting will include introductions of our new staff members and school board members, voting on new officers for the Magnuson Parent Teacher Partnership, and a Vision Night presentation that you will not want to miss.

4:30-5:30 Meet teachers, see classrooms
5:30-6:00 All-School Kick-Off Meeting
6:00-6:30 Meet teachers, see classrooms

When visiting each classroom, it is very important that you complete two forms for each student. These forms are required in order to receive funds for curriculum and health services and supplies.
Forms for Free and Reduced Lunch will also be available. If there is any chance that you will qualify, even if you do not plan to use it, please complete one. It is important for federal funding for the school.

Spirit Wear

New spirit wear options will be available to order at Meet the Teacher on Thursday, September 1. The first Spirit Wear Day will be Friday, September 9.
