Reopening Plan Update

Hello Everyone,

We continue planning for the 2020-21 school year. We will be opening school on August 31st with Virtual Learning (Distance Learning). Both State and County guidelines require us to begin school with Virtual Learning. There continues to be 33 counties on the State Watch List. School districts in those counties cannot open for Blended or In Person Learning. As per the California Department of Public Health, those school districts on the State Watch List can open for Blended and/or In Person Learning when their COVID-19 Case Rates drop below 100 per 100,000 people or their Case Rates drop below 25 per 100,000 people and Testing Positivity is below 8%.

About Us

Mattie Lou Maxwell School is committed to providing all students with a complete educational experience that develops the whole child - academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Our teachers are highly qualified, and participate in exceptional staff development provided by the Magnolia School District’s Educational Services Department. We respond to the individual needs of our students by offering daily interventions for students who are below grade level during and after school. We believe in creating partnerships with the community to provide extracurricular and leadership opportunities for our students. The Anaheim Ducks have built a hockey rink at Maxwell, which is used for physical education and for tournaments. Parents are invited to participate at Maxwell in a variety of ways. The PTA, School Site Council, and ELAC meet regularly. Our Parent Patrol volunteers every morning: welcoming students and parents to school, and preparing classroom materials for the teachers.

Preschool Towers

Preschool Students Perform At-Home Learning

We are proud of our Magnolia School District preschool students, who are engaged in fun and educational learning at home with their families! Last week, students were given a Friday challenge of “Who could build the tallest structure?” The students and their families created structures using household materials. Once constructed, they measured and submitted the height of their structures to the classroom teacher. The winner with the tallest structure received the honor of selecting the Fun Friday songs to be played in their weekly class Zoom meeting. Check out these awesome structures that the students and their families constructed!
Magnolia School District Teachers Help Assemble Bags of Food

Magnolia School District Continues its Hard Work to Serve the Needs of Our Students and Families

Magnolia School District continues its partnership with Giving Children Hope, an organization that delivers weekly backpacks to some of our District families. Normally, these backpacks are filled with food and put together by members of their organization and then distributed to Magnolia School District families. During these unprecedented times, Giving Children Hope is able to deliver the food to our District, but is not able to fill the backpacks. We are very proud of our teachers, who step in and volunteer their time to fill these backpacks for our families each week. The District is so thankful to have such amazing and dedicated employees. The teachers response to the call for help was so overwhelming some of the volunteers had to be turned away. Teachers help assemble the food bags and distribute them to our families.
