Dear RUSD Community,

  • Reminder: Class 3 E-bikes & E-Scooters - Since class 3 e-bikes and e-scooters require a driver’s license, we will not allow students to use these two types of vehicles on school grounds. We will begin enforcing this on Tuesday, January 9th as students return from Winter Break. Hopefully, this gives families a reasonable chance to make adjustments, if needed. It’s also a reminder not to purchase these vehicles for school use. Thanks for your cooperation.
  • Strategic Planning - Make plans to attend the in-person Strategic Planning session on December 8th at 9 AM in Del Mar’s Gym. Just 90 minutes. Let’s dream big about where we take RUSD!
  • Spanish Task Force - More successful progress from our Task Force. Our next meeting will be February 27th and we will aim to have an action plan drafted.
  • District Wide Drills - On Monday, we conducted our district wide fire drill. We’ve come to the conclusion that our communication system is not fast enough and not what we need. Our IT department is exploring other options.

Best regards,


Dr. Kimberly McGrath

Thank you to our amazing 6th Grade /New Student Orientation Trio! 

This year Michele Barnowski, Jennifer Feldman and Jessica McKnight teamed up to help welcome our incoming 6th graders and new 7th and 8th grade students to feel at home at Del Mar! They kicked off the school year helping with orientation, handing out PE uniforms and locks, and delivered on popsicle socials and pizza lunches for Dr. Kover's new student events.

Michele is mom to Hayes (8th) and Rory (6th). In addition to her PTA, Run For Reed, and parent duties, Michele has been teaching pilates at BodyRok for over 8 years. She loves skiing and golfing with her kids, but during the week you may commonly spot her in yoga, in her car with her dog riding passenger, and always with her iced coffee in hand!  

Jen is mom to Alexis (6th) and Riley (3rd).She wears a lot of hats within the PTA and has for many years. In addition to her PTA volunteer activities at Del Mar, you will find her busy at Bel Aire, immersing herself as co-producer of the Wizard of Oz!! Outside of the schools, she stays busy enjoying a walk/run on Blackies with the pup, reading a good book and taking care of all of their pets!

Jessica is a mom to 6th grader, Ella, and lives in Tiburon with her husband Chris who is a Kentfield Firefighter. Both grew up in Marin, Jessica in Mill Valley and Chris in Larkspur. In addition to her PTA volunteer duties, Jessica has been a fitness instructor at The Bay Club for 22 years. In her spare time she can be found spending time with her family and friends in the sunshine.

That is PTA Teamwork!

Holiday Party
We hosted the first  Annual RUSD District PTA & Foundation Holiday Party!  Thank you to all those who attended. It was so wonderful to gather teachers, staff and parents for a casual night of fun and merriment. If you didn’t get an opportunity to join, plan on it for next year! It will be an event you won’t want to miss. Great big thank you to Sam’s Anchor Cafe for hosting and providing delicious food, yummy drinks and having the friendliest super star staff helping us. We are so lucky to have them as a community partner.


Parent Education
The PTA Parent Education team held their first event, showing the award-winning documentary “Screenagers - Growing Up in the Digital Age”.  Afterward, school psychologist Dr. Kover presented survey results from the Del Mar students and a panel of kids from Del Mar and Redwood answered questions about tech use. A big thank you to the Belvedere Community Foundation, which made this event possible and to our EVP, Michelle Wilson, who helped organize the event. 

RUSD Mission & Vision: Each student will be challenged and inspired to reach their fullest intellectual, social-emotional and creative potential to positively impact the world.
