Incoming 7th Graders Must Submit Shot Records Before Start of New Year
Immunization Requirements

All incoming 7th grade students in the State of Texas are required to have two additional immunizations before school starts.

If you have an incoming seventh grader this year, please note that Texas requires two immunizations, TdaP and Meningococcal (MCV4), before the first day of school.

Shot records can be turned in to the front office at MJH; emailed to our nurse at cfolkers@magnoliaisd.org; or faxed to 281-252-2125. Any student without an updated shot record on file will not be permitted to attend class until official documentation is submitted to the school.

Dropping off or sending in these records early will help parents and students avoid having to wait in line to turn them in on the first day of school on August 8.

News & Announcements

MJH Model PLC

Magnolia Junior High is one of 350 schools and districts across the United States to be recognized as a Model Professional Learning Community (PLC). MJH was recognized by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement. The school’s successful implementation of the Professional Learning Communities at Work® process was a major contributing factor in the improved achievement of its students.

Teachers of the 4th Quarter at MJH

At the end of the 2023-2024 school year, students had a chance to vote on the teachers who they feel have made a positive impact on their lives. When the votes were tallied, Mrs. McGowan, Coach Havens, Mrs. Castaneda, and Mrs. McLaughlin were chosen as teachers of the quarter!

7th Grade Math students reviewing probability

The 7th grade math students at MJH are reviewing key skills and concepts from the year to show what they know before moving on to 8th grade. Students competed with each other in a showdown of probability practice starting with a minute to work each problem individually before working as a team to determine the correct answer. As the groups work through the game, the teacher highlighted important academic vocabulary and possible approaches to solving the problems.

VNPS in Math

The MJH Math Department has been focused on research-based instructional practices to improve the depth and retention of key grade-level concepts. One practice is using Vertical Non-Permanent Surfaces (VNPS) to get kids up and interacting with the content and each other. Based on Liljedahl’s book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, using various types of VNPSs helps students have less fear of taking risks because mistakes are easily erased. The strategy also gives teachers better access to watch students’ thinking and processing, which increases opportunities for feedback. Students can be seen using the whiteboards inside and outside the classroom daily at MJH!
