Activist fills opening on School Board

Longtime schools activist Ann McMurray has been appointed to the Edmonds School Board to fill a position left vacant by the resignation of Mimi Terwilliger in December.

The term will expire at the end of this year.

McMurray, a Brier resident, has served on the school district's Citizens Planning Committee since 1990 and was involved in recent recommendations to sell or lease some district properties to raise money.

McMurray's two children graduated from district schools. While they were students, she served in PTAs, site councils and booster clubs. She continues to volunteer with the Mountlake Terrace High School music boosters.

In making the appointment, board President Bruce Williams called McMurray an "outstanding individual with a wealth of experience pertaining to the Edmonds School District."

Marysville School District

Comments sought on bond proposal

Residents' views on the scope of a proposed construction bond measure in the Marysville School District will be sought at a community meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 3 in the Marysville-Pilchuck High School cafeteria, 5611 108th St. N.E.

A district committee is completing a list of projects to be included in a bond measure that would go before voters in May.

Currently, the district is considering building a second high school, renovating the existing high school, adding an elementary school and replacing Liberty and Cascade elementaries.

District enrollment is expected to rise by about 1,200 students over the next three years. The district now supplements space with 117 portable classrooms.
