Morning Drop Off

As you're aware, Morning Drop Off can be very busy and somewhat hectic at times. With this in mind, please encourage your students to walk all the way to the crosswalk if you are dropping them off in the outside lane. We've had an increasing number of students walking in between cars which is a cause for concern, as we want to keep everyone safe. Office Justice will be at Morning Drop Off directing students that direction. Thanks for your help!


Congrats to Caroline Parr for receiving the weekly BBJH Holla Award! Caroline excels academically, is very respectful to classmates and teachers, and exhibits excellent leadership skills. Congrats Caroline!

In addition, the BBJH Teacher Holla Award this week goes to Mr. Williams. Mr. Williams is the BBJH Assistant Band Director and he does an awesome job working with our students in band. He also directs the PEP Band at MHS. We appreciate all his hard work. Congrats!

MHS-BBJH Fishbowl

8th Grade Parents...don't forget that the MHS Fishbowl will take place Thursday, February 28th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Magnolia High School. This is a great opportunity to learn some important information as your student gets ready to enter high school next year!

TEAM UP: Parent and Community Engagement Night Hidden In Plain Sight

As part of Magnolia ISD’s TEAM UP series (Together Educating All Magnolia ISD), on Wednesday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m at the Magnolia Event Center, parents are invited to browse through a mock teen bedroom to notice signs that might indicate underage alcohol use, vaping, or other drug use. Knowledge is power and parents need current information to keep young students healthy and safe. Hidden in Plain Sight will allow parents to sharpen their detective skills as a parent.

Stronger to Serve Amazing Kindness Race

Stronger To Serve, a local non-profit, has an awesome opportunity to get active and serve together. They have an event coming up called The Amazing Kindess Race, where teams are going to have a blast racing relay-style through 10 family-friendly fitness and services challenges put on by local providers and non-profits. If you're interested in putting a team together and participating, please click here to take a look at the attached flyer.
