"🌟 Calling all parents/guardians/community members in our Magi Family🌟 Our team believes in the power of community involvement to enrich our students' educational journey. Over the course of the past month, we have engaged in a number of conversations with parents and stakeholders ... many of whom have shared feedback and input. Through these conversations, we have had a request: parents, guardians, and community members who want to be a part of the daily work we are doing in our buildings. We're excited to invite you to participate in this incredible experience by volunteering at our schools! Whether you can spare time during the school day, evenings, or weekends, your contribution makes a significant difference. From assisting in classrooms to supporting events, there's a role for everyone! Interested in being a part of our vibrant school community? Click the link below to complete our volunteer interest form and help shape our students' success together! We have developed a short Google Form to collect your interest in supporting students so that we can act fast. https://tinyurl.com/Volunteer-Magi-23 Thank you for being a critical part of our Magi family! 📚✨"

Colon Jr/Sr High School families re: tomorrow!! Charge your Chromebooks, bring your chargers with you! And enjoy our little story: 'Twas the night before iReady, and all through the Jr/Sr high school, Not a creature was stirring, not even in the elementary school. The Chromebooks were placed by the chargers with care, In hopes that full batteries soon would be there. The students were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of diagnostics danced in their heads. And the principal in her office, our support staff, too, Were charging their Chromebooks, all shiny and new. With a modified schedule, the morning would bring An iReady diagnostic, oh, what a thing! But fret not, dear families, it'll be just fine, As long as those Chromebooks brightly will shine. So charge up those Chromebooks, make sure they're all set, For a morning of assessments, don't you forget! Mrs. Wielenga, Mrs. Kevnick, and Mrs. Kowalski, oh my, They're currently charging devices under the moonlit sky. Now, middle and high school students, it's time to prepare, For iReady awaits with challenges rare. Bring your Chromebooks charged, from wall sockets gleaned, And let's ace those diagnostics like a dream! In this holiday season, let's learn and have fun, With devices all charged, we'll get work done. So, rest up tonight, for the morning's quite near, With iReady ahead, let's give a big cheer!

On Wednesday, we had even more visitors to talk about life after high school with our students. Saginaw Valley State University and the Army National Guard were the latest organizations to see our Magi students and share about how they may fit into their postsecondary plans. So far this year, we have welcomed visitors from over ten colleges and several military recruiters, and in October, almost 20 professionals spoke about their career paths. Don't forget to SAVE THE DATE for our FAFSA Night Part 2 of 2, and soon, Mrs. Kevnick will be releasing her recording of the first session for families wishing to prepare for the December 4th event.

Save The Date! We have heard your feedback about our holiday concert and have found a way to involve ALL K-5 students in this production. Whether they are performing as part of their music special or their art special, all elementary students will play a special part in this extravaganza! Our CHS Gym is large, but you will want to get there early to save your seat!
