Schweitzer School was named a California Gold Ribbon School in 2016. Schweitzer School has won this award due to its excellent academic program and to the collaboration of staff and parents in providing that program. We are especially proud of our personnel, who believe that all of our students will succeed academically and will develop good character with the right kind of support. All of our teachers are considered highly qualified by the State of California, and work very hard to provide a high quality education to our students. Parents, classified staff, and support staff all work together to make sure Schweitzer students read and write daily. On the annual parent survey, 98% of our parents responded that their child is getting a good education at Schweitzer School.

As you are aware, at our Board Meeting last week we discussed our School Reopening Plan and a comprehensive guide that we have developed titled "Family and Student Return to School Guide." Both of these documents are now posted on our website under the COVID-19 tab. We have also posted the weekly Coronavirus Test Positivity Rates that are published by the Orange County Health Care Agency.
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!
