On Eagles’ Wings – April Newsletter
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:
The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17
It is such a pleasure to see the new life all around us at this time of year. Grass is growing, trees are budding, apples are blossoming, and flowers are blooming. We see the new life in our students as well. They are growing bigger every day. We see budding artists, scientists, authors, and mathematicians. Their faith is blossoming, and they are blooming into children of God who share His love.
Cheri Buelow will be the director of Magnuson Christian School beginning with the 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Buelow has the experience, energy, and commitment to continue the mission at Magnuson, and to bring new life. She will faithfully serve God and the Magnuson family. Please join me in welcoming her!
Our fifth grade students have been meeting with White Bear Lake police officer Angie Rohow and learning how to make safe, healthy choices for themselves. They did a wonderful job of voicing what they have learned as they each read their D.A.R.E. essays. Well done, fifth graders!

Students from our very first kindergarten class are graduating from high school this year. Congratulations to a group of wonderful students and future leaders!
Gifts for Growth Gala
What a delightful evening we had at the 2017 Gifts for Growth Gala. Over $105,000 was raised, and matched by the foundation’s generous grant! Magnuson Christian School is a very special family of students, parents, staff, and supporters. Thank you to all who attended and to those who participated in any way to help make it such a successful event. A special thanks to the leadership team of Brigette Brown, Kelli Donohoo, and Jenny Boxrud who put in countless hours of love and hard work.
Please join us on Tuesday, May 2, at 6:30pm for Magnuson Showcase. Enjoy visiting classrooms and completing a scavenger hunt from 6:30-7:00. The spring concert will begin at 7:15 in the Sanctuary.
You won’t want to miss this year’s Color Dash on Saturday, June 3! Invite friends, neighbors, and family members to join you. There will be food trucks and activities for everyone. This will also serve as our end-of-the-year party, so every family is encouraged to come and join the fun.
If you have not already done so, PLEASE complete the enrollment process for your students for the 2017-2018 school year and invite your friends!
