Subject: Option for Magnolia Science Academy to return to Santa Clara next school year
Dear Magnolia Families,
As I shared with the PTO at the PTO meeting last week, Magnolia Science Academy has an option to move back to Santa Clara for the upcoming school year. We have been offered a five-year lease (with an option for an additional five years) at this new location. The new site will be near Santa Clara High School and Pomeroy Elementary.
All current families and already admitted new students will be guaranteed enrollment at the new site. We will also have room for all siblings of current students. New and returning students will be admitted on a first come, first serve basis until we reach our enrollment capacity.
The Magnolia Public School Board of Directors will be voting on the lease for this new location at its meeting next Thursday, April 21. The only other option they will be considering is closing the school completely.
The Board will be meeting at our school, and this will be an excellent opportunity for the Board to hear directly from our families about why the school should remain open to provide an outstanding education to our students. The meeting will start at 5:00pm*, and we will have a meet and greet with the board members starting at 4:45 pm*. (*NOTE time change)
I hope you and your children will be able to attend the meeting. If you have any questions about the meeting or the proposal, please let me know.
In order to estimate our returning student enrollment, I will be sending you a brief survey. I would greatly appreciate your assistance in completing it as soon as possible.
If you know new or returning families who would like to enroll in MSA-SC now that we will be in Santa Clara, please ask them to complete the pre-enrollment application form on our website as soon as possible. I would like to have preliminary enrollment numbers for the Board on Thursday. The link to the form is here:
I am grateful for your support this school year, and I look forward to working together to grow the school in our new location back in Santa Clara.
Thanks again!
