Magnolia Education Foundation Hosts Open House

The Foundation was founded to provide “tools for learning” and to fund programs outside of the school budget that supports excellence in education. The nonprofit provides an avenue for business and community members to work together with the school district to ensure student success, and moving the district to be “the best in the state of Texas.”

Foundation President Pam Rogers outlines how parents, business and community members can be involved, “One of our biggest fundraisers each year is our annual fall golf tournament. We always need volunteers and sponsors to help make this event a success!” Pam also mentioned the Holiday Market, Chili’s Give Back Night, being a campus liaison and serving on the board as other ways to serve the Foundation.

Every November, the Board reviews teacher applications funding the maximum possible rewarding teachers for innovative teaching projects. This year over $22,000 in grants were awarded. A few examples of the innovative grants awarded this year include an ethnic replica of skulls to be used for forensic science, anatomy, AP-biology and biology, physiology, and geology; an interactive music whiteboard; literacy work stations for kindergarten; and Rekenreks for elementary math.

The Foundation’s open house is an opportunity to meet board members and learn more about how to be involved. “We would like to thank the community, teachers and parents for supporting us. We want to continue to award innovative teaching grants that benefit our students and teachers but need your help with supporting our mission and growing school district.”

The Foundation’s mission is to achieve academic excellence by developing financial resources though community involvement. For information about the foundation, visit or contact Pam Rogers at 713-416-7546.
