Magnuson Muse and News – April Newsletter

Girls just wanna have fun!

This is us!  All the K-8 teachers and specialists celebrated a wonderful evening at Magnuson’s Gifts for Growth Gala.  The venue was decorated so beautifully, the food was delicious, the steel drum band added a wonderful flair, the games were entertaining, and the auction items were diverse and inviting.  What an incredible team of volunteers and generous donors we had to make this night such a wonderful success!


Our Magnuson Parent Teacher Partnership (MPTP) will be celebrating the SUPER HEROS of MCS, our wonderful teachers and staff, during National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7th-11th.  We need your help making it extra special.  We are looking for volunteers to decorate classroom doors and assist with lunch and recess.  CLICK HERE for more information about how you can get involved!

I have a couple of mottos that I live by.  One is “Excellence for the Lord!”  Everything we do should be done with excellence because God is worthy of it.  I’ve been reminding our students of that this week as they’ve been testing.  Thank you for helping them eat well and get enough sleep each night.  Another favorite motto is “Finish Strong!”  I can hardly believe we are nearing the end of the school year.  I plan to keep my foot on the gas until the very end, and I hope your children do too.  Tomorrow is the last day of testing.  Finish Strong!  We’ve got less than 30 days of school left.  Finish Strong!
