CHARACTER STRONG: Family Dare: Their Thing
Spend time this week do something with a family member that you know is important and/or interesting to them. Learn to play a new board game with your grandma, a card game with your youngest sibling, or better yet, parents learn to level up on that video game your student loves so much.

As always, tweet @bearbranchint and @careacter.
Student Meals During Closure: UPDATED
Magnolia ISD will continue to provide FREE meals to students through June 30. Families will be able to drive through for curbside pick up at three of our elementary school locations. Curbside meals will be distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. - 12 noon. Buses have also been deployed during these times to meet families at bus stops. Monday meals will include breakfast and lunch for Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday meals will include breakfast and lunch for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Please see below for details:
Locations: Magnolia Elementary School, Smith Elementary School, & Lyon Elementary
When: Monday and Wednesday each week
Time: 9 a.m. to 12 noon
1. Cars will pull up to the back of the school and form a car rider line. This line will form at the back of the school where the buses normally drop off students. Please remain in your car and an employee will deliver the food to your car.
2. All children 18 or under will eat free and children need to be present in the car.
3. Each child will receive one breakfast and one lunch in a to-go bag or box.
