Irving Book Fair is Back!

Help support our school and grow your own home library at the Irving Book Fair! Now back in the school auditorium after school Monday through Thursday, April 25 – 28, 2022. We are able to accept cash, checks and credit cards at the return of this beloved in-person event!

A Silly Spring Storytime will be held on Wednesday at 6:30pm featuring read-alouds from Ms. Noonan, Mr. Blecha, Ms. Williams, Mr. Williams, Mr. Hodge and Ms. Mura …Plus popcorn and snacks!

Through the Book Fair, we are able to raise money for the Irving library, provide free books to our free and reduced lunch families, and provide opportunities for families to purchase books for their kids as well as their teachers. For any families who are interested in purchasing books for their teacher’s classrooms, many of the teachers have set aside a few books that they feel would benefit their classrooms – please ask and we’ll help you find them!

Register for Trivia Night

One of Irving’s most beloved traditions is back! Put on your thinking caps and join the Irving community for a night of trivia and laughs! The event is deejayed by our own Mr. Sak! There will be raffles, 5th grade class baskets and a Split the Pot! 

Gather your friends, make a homeroom table, or sign up and we’ll place you!

After you purchase your ticket(s), we will send you a Google Form to list your team mates or place requests. If you do not have a table of 10, event organizers will place you with others to create a table of 10.  This is going to be so much fun!! We hope you can join us!!
