About Us

Esther L. Walter was built in 1959 and was named after a teacher, Esther L. Walter, who taught in the Magnolia School District for more than 25 years. The school was the ninth and final school built in the Magnolia School District. Walter is a Gold Ribbon School where our goal is to provide a safe and positive learning environment for all students. To fulfill our goal, the Walter staff provides rigorous Common Core standard-based instruction with integrated technology in order for our students to become 21st century learners. Walter is extremely fortunate to have the support of the community and parents and parents are involved in their student’s education. The district adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is evident when walking through the campus. Students strive to achieve exemplary behavior and are recognized daily, both in classrooms and school-wide, for exhibiting the qualities of SOAR. (Safe, Open arms, Academic, Respectful). Students at Walter are empowered in their learning through the academic supports and special programs provided by the Walter School Staff and outside agencies. Esther L. Walter is an excellent Gold Ribbon school which is recognized for the hard work and dedication of its staff, students, families and community. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education.

Superintendent Update 7/27/21

While the Pandemic changed the way we educate children in the Magnolia School District, it did not change our focus on high expectations, rigorous academics and the importance of social-emotional learning. When we transitioned from virtual learning to our hybrid model last April, students and staff were very happy to return to school. We added additional custodial, health, counseling, food services and instructional support to ensure our schools are safe and the needs of our students and staff are met.

Preschool Students Perform At-Home Learning

We are proud of our Magnolia School District preschool students, who are engaged in fun and educational learning at home with their families! Last week, students were given a Friday challenge of “Who could build the tallest structure?” The students and their families created structures using household materials. Once constructed, they measured and submitted the height of their structures to the classroom teacher. The winner with the tallest structure received the honor of selecting the Fun Friday songs to be played in their weekly class Zoom meeting. Check out these awesome structures that the students and their families constructed!
