Mrs. Blakes, the Physical Education Teacher is a great teacher, caring, innovative, and works hard to integrate what students are learning in their classrooms into her PE lessons. She makes Physical Fitness fun! She is also very much a team-player, pitching in with other staff when needed. Thanks Mrs. Blakes !

I Have seen their dedication, and how hard they work, I see them there after school and on weekends. The school scores show the results; this is a B school, and one of the best scoring elem schools in the district, without a gifted or magnet program.

I feel some homework is needed; but some students don't do it regularly. Teachers can't get it all done during the day, and some work at home for research or practice is needed.

Students are encouraged to keep trying and to set personal goals for themselves as well as for the class. Achievement like grades, attendance and good behavior are rewarded with Bear Paw Points, which they can spend in the Bear Paw Store for books, games, trinkets etc, Honor students are recognized each 9 weeks.

Teachers try; there are only so many instruction hours in the day, and a very demanding curriculum to teach and not nearly enough time, but they do try to inculcate these social development lessons as they teach.

The principal and staff make every effort to instill these qualities in their students with firm, consistent implementation of school rules . Bullying, while impossible to eliminate entirely, is sternly dealt with by teachers, guidance counselors, and social worker.

Magnolia Woods Elem. is an excellent school with a great principal and a caring and dedicated faculty. Students are nearly all minorities, about 15 % are English Language Learning and 95% qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. The students come from very a very mobile population, and change schools frequently, sometimes more than once during the year. In spite of these challenges, the school performance scores have risen slowly but steadily until the school was only 0.3 of a point from being classified as a B school in the last school year, The campus is quiet and well controlled, but students are generally happy and like their school. It has a strong volunteer support group of about 85 community volunteers who help with reading and math tutoring and assist the teachers and staff in many other ways. This public school has no gifted or talented program, but does serve autistic, special ed, and other children with learning disabilities. And yet, it had the highest performance score of EBR elementary schools without G & T programs which help to elevate a school's scores. This principal and faculty and staff are wonderful examples of what is being done.
