Magna Elementary was built in 1957.
It serves approximately 600 students, kindergarten through sixth grade.
Computers and Technology
Magna Elementary has two school computer labs with 35 computers each, a mini lab, and one classroom set of ipods. We are also adding a mobile Chromebook lab this year. The labs are networked and available to all classes daily. The instructional lab is supervised by a full-time certified teacher to address all computer problems along with teaching skills such as keyboarding, research, multi-media presentations, internet safety, etc. In addition, reading, math, and language skills are included as supplemental enhancement to classes as well. Each classroom is equipped with 2-3 networked computers along with projection and sound systems, hooked to a teacher computer that is used daily in instruction. Students also use the STMath weekly as a tool to check for progress throughout the year. This information is used by teachers to drive classroom instruction.
Reading Instruction and Reading Specialist
Magna Elementary has a full-time reading coach. She helps with delivery of literacy instruction and assessment. Our district has adopted “Imagine It” by McGraw Hill/SRA which allows teachers to differentiate instruction according to individual student needs. We also have a school library and literacy center. Students are encouraged to read at home every day with our Ken Garff Road to Success Program. In addition, students in K – 1 have the opportunity to use Imagine Learning English, a program to help with reading and language acquisition skills
Students promoted from Magna Elementary will attend Matheson Jr. High. The feeder high school for all Magna Elementary students is Cyprus High School.
Parent participation is encouraged at Magna Elementary. research supports that the more involved parents are in school activities, functions, and communication, the more successful their students will be. Parents can volunteer time with the PTA. We welcome your input at Magna!
