It has come to our attention that some basic rules of Car Line are not being followed. In order for the Car Line to work smoothly, safely and quickly, we need everyone to cooperate. This includes staying off the phone, having your kids ready to exit the car in the morning and most importantly, staying in your vehicle. Please respect the volunteers who are out there - their main concerns are keeping your kids safe and keeping the line moving. One parked vehicle makes both of those things harder. The Car Line Policy is linked for your reference. Please share it with other family members, caregivers, and friends who drop off or pick up your children.
The Edna Maguire Lost and Found is now located behind the Multipurpose Room (MPR), on the Marin Day School side. Lost items are donated after two weeks.
If you have any questions please contact Simone Slattery or Julie Kennedy.

The Edna Nominating Committee is holding a coffee cart on Thursday, March 13 from 8-9 a.m. outside the kindergarten classrooms. There will be a list of the current open Board and Chair positions for you to browse. You will find many types of jobs that require different levels of commitment. We would love to have you on this team of positive, energetic parents who make Edna a wonderful school community. All positions are volunteer, so even if you are not sure you want to commit to anything, stop by for some coffee and friendly conversation. Dads are encouraged!
Spots are filling up quickly, so don't delay if you are interested! And, if you would prefer not to head up a committee or help on the PTA Executive Board, we are taking early sign ups for volunteers to help on any of these committees. See current available positions here.
Please email ednamaguirePTApositions@gmail.com.
