Virtual Fall Book Fair

We are working hard to keep kids reading and raise critical funds for our school with our Scholastic Online-Only Book Fair from October 19 through November 1, 2020.

The Fair will connect your kids to notable books and inspiring characters — helping them become lifelong readers. And you’ll love the new option to shop for Book Fair exclusives — directly from the interactive booklist.

Plus, enjoy these special online shopping features:

  • Access to over 6,000 products
  • All orders ship direct to home
  • FREE shipping on book-only orders over $25*
  • All purchases support our school and earn 25% in rewards

Update: Move-A-Thon

The Move-A-Thon is a week-long virtual event that will take place from Sunday, September 6th to Saturday, September 12th. This FUNdraiser is being held in lieu of the Fun Run this year, but the goal is the same: to help the PTO continue its important work on behalf of our Irving community. In addition to the things it does every year (book donations, Eagles Extras scholarships, staff appreciation week, and much more), this year the PTO distributed hundreds of e-gift cards (over $10,000) to Irving families in need of assistance.

The Virtual Move-A-Thon is open to all Irving families! Students can roll in their wheelchairs, scoot, bike, walk, jog, run, rollerblade, rollerskate, skateboard, dance and/or do other movements, and record their movements and times at Prizes will be awarded to the students in each grade with the most minutes and the most different types of movements performed. Families who are in a position to do so are invited to make donations using a no-frills donations platform:

Please submit a photo or short video of your kiddo or whole family participating in the Move-A-Thon by email to for inclusion in an end-of-event slideshow (and possibly the school yearbook).    

For more information or if you have questions, please do not hesitate to email Dawn Goulet or Melissa De Jesus-Vasquez at
