On Eagles’ Wings – November Newsletter

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
Psalm 100:4

Thankful

I thank God every day for the opportunity to spend time with the incredible, loving, devoted Christians who make up the Magnuson family!

Grandparents Daypic

What a wonderful turnout we had for Grandparents Day! Grandparents and special friends worshipped with us in Chapel, created a work of art with their students, solved a STEM challenge, and joined us for lunch. Thank you so much for coming.

Christian Leaders and Servants

pic5At Magnuson Christian School, students learn Christian leadership skills. Our middle school students assist with weekly Chapel services by ushering and running the technology. They did an awesome job of serving lunch to veterans to whom they had written letters of thanks for their service. Once a month, they help people with their purchases at Fare for All. The fifth graders are Chapel Buddies and mentors to the kindergartners. We are so proud of the young ladies and gentlemen they are becoming!

Kindergarten Experiencepic3

Our first Kindergarten Experience was very successful! Please tell your family, friends, and neighbors about the next free event on Thursday, January 26, 2017 from 9:30-11:30am. Preschool-age children will have the opportunity to participate in a full morning of kindergarten activities, including exploring the kindergarten classroom, going through the lunch line to get their snack, singing and playing instruments with the music specialist, and doing a large muscle activity with the Physical Education specialist. Parents will meet with teachers to talk about kindergarten readiness.

Open House

MCS will have an Open House on Thursday, January 26, from 2:30-7:30 p.m. Please extend an invitation to anyone you know whose children could be blessed by the Faith, Family and Excellence at Magnuson Christian School! Your personal invitation is what is needed to help our school grow and thrive.

Toys for Tots

We have two days to bring in toys for Toys for Tots, our mission project for November. Join us on KARE11 News on Dec. 3.

School Closings

If we have any school closings, they will be announced on WCCO radio, TV, and their online site. If White Bear Lake, District 624, is closed, we will also be closed. We will also send an email to parents announcing our school closings. (There is a MAG Christian School in Forest Lake – this is a different school.)

Pizza and Bingo Nightpic4

Parents and students enjoyed a fun evening of pizza and bingo as the kick-off to our pizza fundraiser. Over $3,000 was raised for technology! Way to go!
