Announcements! It Is A Busy Week!

So much going on this week and so many opportunities to welcome our new families!

  • Wednesday 9/4 6:30 to 8:30pm New Family Orientation and Welcome Dinner.  All families new to our Irving Community are invited to join us for a pizza dinner followed by a presentation by Principal Hodge and the PTO to follow. Childcare provided. Current Irving families sign up to help here.

We will be meeting in the auditorium this year (easier to find, and a bigger screen!), and will have childcare in the library (as the community room is now a classroom). Ms. Mura will be speaking at the beginning of our meeting on Bullying vs. Social Conflict: the differences and how to support your child with either situation.

Movie starts at dusk, but come earlier if you want to celebrate Back to School with the Irving School PTO. Pizza, music and fun will be on hand.
