EHS Parent Mosaic
Join the EHS Parent Mosaic!

The EHS Parent Mosaic is a group of parents who have committed to building relationships cross culturally throughout the EHS parent community. We believe that the more EHS parents know each other, especially those they might not interact with otherwise, the more they understand each other, and the stronger our community will be. We are a team of parents who have become friends. Mosaic parents meet one evening per month throughout the school year. We listen to each other’s stories, we learn together and from each other, and we laugh together. We have found that we have a lot in common! 
And, there is also great food involved!!! In our meetings, we do not focus on politics or current events. We focus on ourselves and our own personal growth. We focus on our kids and our school. We don’t focus on who is right or wrong. We focus on listening and learning from each other’s experience. In addition to our monthly meetings, we volunteer together at school events such as Get Connected Day, Curriculum night, and Finals.      

We meet in the EHS Commons. 
Our remaining meeting dates for the 2018-2019 school year are:
March 11, from 6:30 – 8:00
April 17, from 6:30 – 8:00
May 20, from 6:30 – 8:00

New members join us all year long. We ask members to share what they learn and invite their friends to join us too. No level of commitment is too great or too small. Just be part of the conversation. If you have any questions or would like to join us, please contact Assistant Principal, Mike Pretasky, 952-848-3140 or
co-chair, Angella McGarvey, 612-310-3909.
Edina Public Schools Meal Fund
Edina Public Schools created the Meal Fund to ease the burden of school
meal debt on families in a time of crisis, such as employment instability,
illness, death or food insecurity. 

In Edina, 8.7 percent of EPS students qualify for free or reduced cost meals.
28 percent of households are cost burdened,
which means cost of living outpaces income ( MN Compass ).

We can work together to support our families and our community.
Science Travel Based Learning Opportunity
Parents/Drivers that pick students up near Calvary Lutheran Church

Calvary Lutheran Church has reached out to us requesting that drivers/parents picking up students after school not use the driving lanes in their lot as a waiting zone. While it is always their desire to be a good neighbor to EHS, they already have many EHS students who have parking permits in their lot which makes it tight. Additionally, Calvary has after school programming for which families and staff need to be able to access the lot and park. They ask that if you are waiting to pick up a student, please pull your car into a space on the West side of the lot
nearest Antrim rather than waiting in the driving lanes. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
