PTO sells popcorn for $0.25 each Friday. Volunteers pop popcorn, bag it, deliver it, and count the money each Friday. This is a fun one and you end up being a celebrity in the school! ("Hey! You're the popcorn lady!") Come when you can, Leave when you must!! Come one Friday, every other Friday, or every Friday!!

We show our appreciation to our teachers and staff with food and gifts. Volunteers help to coordinate teacher's treats to let them know how important they are to us. Our PTO accepts gift donations/gift certificates from business owners. In April/May, there is a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon where we need help with set up, man, and clean up for this event. Other Magnolia parents will provide the food. This year will will have appreciation days though out the year.

This is a very important area where parents can come in and help teachers with extra work that they need completed, such as cut-outs, workbooks, etc. Any busy work that they need done is dropped off by the teachers in the teachers workroom for us to complete. Tasks are different from week to week depending on the projects and units of study they are currently on. This group meets every Tuesday at 8am in the Teacher's workroom, hope to see you there.
Teachers award the golden sneaker to one student every Friday. The golden sneaker comes with a gift bag. This committee assembles the gift bags periodically throughout the year. This can be done from home.
Volunteers are paired with teachers to help with AR testing and read with and to students in the classroom. This is great for parents with busy schedules, as you sign up for when you are available.
Families come to Magnolia Park for a fun night with great food, a cake walk, gift basket raffle, and a book fair. Volunteers are needed for prep, sell tickets, and clean up. We will also need donations for the themed gift baskets.
