@MagdalenWichita Twitter Contest

Get social with Magdalen families and events through Twitter.  Through the use of Twitter we are hoping to bolster the ways Magdalen students and families communicate and share what it means to be a Mustang!  During the entire month of April we want you to follow @MagdalenWichita on Twitter (check our documents section for an easy step by step guide) and tweet us pictures of students and parents participating in activities for the school or parish.  Examples include:

- Participating in sports or cheering from the stands
- Mingling at Artesia
- Taking part in various meetings
- Attending the Knights of Columbus breakfast
- Band or Choir events
- Battle of the Books, Religion Bowl or Scholars Bowl
- Saying, "Hi" to Father Pat after Mass

Snap a picture, tweet it to @MagdalenWichita with a quick message of where or what you are doing and make sure to include the proper hashtag(s) for the grade(s) your children are in.  (Example #Grade3, #GradePK, #GradeK, #Grade8).  Check in on Twitter to @MagdalenWichita to see some of the entries and

The top three grades that receive the most hashtag pictures on Twitter during April will win great prizes including Ice Cream Party and Free Recess. The contest begins April 1st (this is not an April fools joke!).

Here are some good social media tips for parents:

  • Be sure to check your students' privacy settings on your account to control what is shared with the world
  • It is a good idea to "follow" your children
  • Talk with your child about what is an acceptable post or tweet
  • Remember to reflect good Catholic values in word and in deed on-line and in the real word

Congratulations to our TYFTC winners!

Our annual "Take Your Family to Church" essay and art contest was a huge success!  Twenty winners were showcased throughout the month of February, with our TOP 5 earning a pizza party at the rectory with Fr. Pat, Fr. Fog, and Sr. Connie.  Congratulations to our TOP 5 winners!  Stephanie Born, Catherine Gimino, Evelyn Nguyen, Ian Reusser, and Camila Esquivel.

2014 State Assessment letter

At Parent Teacher conferences last week, each family with students in grades 3-8 received a 2014 State Assessment letter.  For your convenience, this letter is also available on our webpage.  Please look to the right hand side of the screen under School Downloads to access the letter again, if needed.  You will be able to find valuable information about the new assessments, our testing schedule, and a list of "Do's and Don'ts" to help your child be as successful as possible.
