VIDEO: Kids, District Celebrate Groundbreaking of New Edna Campus

Students, teachers, administrators, contractors, and other members of the Mill Valley School District community came together in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new, 70,000 square-foot campus that should be complete by next year.

Edna Maguire Elementary School students gathered on the blacktop outside their temporary campus Thursday morning and looked out at the masive vacant lot where their new school will be next year.

"Are you excited?" asked Mill Valley School District Board President Robin Moses.

"Yeah!" they replied in unison.

The $28 million, 70,000 square-foot project is a complete overhaul of the school's 54-year-old campus, which wouldn't meet building and safety codes if built today, according to Tim Ryan, the district's director of maintenance and operations. It also aims to accommodate the district's ever-rising enrollment.

The new facility will include new classrooms, a gym, library, administration building and multi-purpose room in place of the 51,132 square-foot old campus. It's being paid for by the November 2009 passage of Measure C, the $59.8 million bond measure that also funded upgrades to Old Mill, Tamalpais Valley, Strawberry Point and Park elementary schools.
