Magnet blasts off into new school year at Open House

Magnet Open House-2018 (1)

There were a lot of new students exploring Magnet for the 2018-2019 Open House on Aug. 9. The school’s new theme is Outer Space and teachers wore shirts that said: “Magnet Teachers Are Out Of This World.”

The school increased its enrollment in the middle of the last school year, so it’s filling out its enrollment from 320 to almost 400 students. Principal Stephonie French said they’ll be able to offer students a lot this year, such as art and music classes. They’re also expanding their clubs. One example is the introduction of a 4-H Cloverbud Club for grades 1-3.

“We’re looking forward to challenging our students even further,” said French. “We had a great year last year and we grew and we’re excited to see what we can do this year.”
