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!

Getting Involved and Staying Informed!

What’s Garden Club? When does it meet? When is the Book Fair? What’s the sign up for Zero Waste or Pacers? Who do I ask about donating deserts for teachers lunches?

If these are the kind of questions that bring you to our PTO page, we want you to find the answers! There are several ways to stay up to date.

  1. Check the Getting Involved (formerly the Volunteer) Page. You’ll find contact info, the dates for events (that we know so far), brief descriptions and other links. This page is constantly updated, so check the date at the bottom for the latest updates!
  2. Check our calendar!  We will update the event details with any sign up information as it comes available.
  3. Subscribe to the blog! Where the site does have pages of info, we’ll also post announcements for things too. From the bottom of the home page, look for “Follow Blog Via Email” to enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.
