This year we have EIGHT languages available: American Sign Language (ASL), French, German, Greek, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Spanish. Classes will take place once per week during lunch/recess for approximately 12 weeks beginning January 30. Scholarships are available!

February PTO Meeting

Lately many families have been asking about what they can do to help with safety at the school during arrival and dismissal. After some initial discussion at the January PTO meeting, we have decided that the PTO meeting on Thursday, February 2 at 7pm will focus on school safety. Families will work together to brainstorm a list of proposals to bring to the village. We will have representation from the district office to ensure that the school district is communicating similar proposals. Families can attend this meeting in person in the school library (childcare will be provided!) or virtually via zoom. We hope to see you there!

Do you know another language?

Irving’s World Language Program is coming back in 2023!

World Language is a program running during lunch or after school where Irving students can sign up to learn the basics of a new language. We have some great options so far but would LOVE a couple more offerings. (Spanish and ASL specifically would be great!) You do not need to be a native speaker, since these classes are just to teach elementary students the basics! 

Teaching these classes is a PAID position and you can choose whether you want to hold the classes during lunch or after school – whatever works best for your schedule. Interested? Please email lvanderberg@gmail.com.
