Activities

Irving Family Day with the Chicago Wolves

Tickets are $17.50 each (regularly $26, but discounted for Irving students, families and friends) and can be purchased here: https://fevo.me/irvingschool. Plus, everyone who attends will receive a Chicago Wolves knit hat! This is not a school fundraiser; just a chance to enjoy an afternoon of fun with some fellow Irving Eagles. Hope to see you there!

Gender Equity Training Event

D97 Divco is welcoming all parents, caregivers, teachers and educational volunteers to participate in Lurie’s Gender Equity Training with representatives from Lurie Children’s Hospital. This training will help develop awareness on supporting and affirming gender identities and sexual freedoms amongst children and youth. Ensuring the safety and comfort of our children in this community is crucial and has a significant impact on their health and wellbeing. We hope you will join the rest of our D97 community in working towards a more loving and accepting space for all children.

Fill the Fridges!

Please help Irving Elementary fight food insecurity in our community! Our school has been assigned to fill the fridges EVERY day from Sunday 1/16 to Saturday 1/22, so on days when school is not in session, please bring any items you can spare directly to the community fridges at Carnival Foods (824 S. Oak Park Ave) or in the Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church Parking Lot (405 S. Euclid). Due to the very cold weather, canned goods have been freezing and bursting, so the organizers are asking us to please only bring non-canned food items at this time. Thank you for your help in supporting our community!

Join Irving Freecycle

The goal of Irving Freecycle is to facilitate the sharing of resources, connecting those in need of specific items with those who have them to give. Do you or someone you know have a need, such as size 3 snow boots, warm pajamas for mom or holiday toys for a 4th grade girl who loves LOL dolls? Or could you maybe have some of those items to give? Check out our Irving Freecycle page for more details or join the Facebook Group!
