Eagle Extras

Updated 9/21/2022 

Eagle Extras is an after school enrichment program brought to you by the Irving PTO. There are two sessions throughout the school year, with different offerings each session.  These fee-based activities are taught by a variety of outside organizations and instructors, and Irving teachers.

Registration is now closed EXCEPT for 2 classes (see below)! — Click here to register for these final couple of classes before registration closes completely on Thursday, September 22 at 7:00pm.

Remaining Classes:

Storytelling through Painting and Drawing on Tuesdays. Now offered for your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader (originally only opened for 3rd-4th). Offered by Slowfire who intentionally caps their classes at a small enrollment so your child can have a meaningful, dedicated artistic experience with lots of one-on-one. This class needs 3 more students to sign-up to be able to run. Please spread the word!

Our Circle, a new class thoughtfully being offered by Ms. Williams for female identifying 4th and 5th graders on Fridays to work on and learn about community building, empowerment, confidence, and emotional literacy. Most importantly your child gets to hang-out with and be inspired by this wonderful, caring mentor and teacher for an hour! Don’t miss it.

If money is the only thing holding you back from signing up, we can likely help. Email eagleextras@irvingpto.com and let us know!!

Eagle Extras - FALL 2022 (Updated 9-18-22)

If you are unable to use the online registration system, please let us know via email (EagleExtras@IrvingPTO.com) and we will make other arrangements.

Late registrations will not be accepted. The parent volunteers need time to assemble class rosters for the on-site coordinators, teachers, instructors and office staff. We are not able to accommodate changes in the schedule after the registration period is over. Questions? Please contact eagleextras@irvingpto.com.

Logistics. For those children enrolled in Eagle Extras, they will be directed to go to the auditorium at the end of the school day by their teachers (you do not need to come to the school to take them to this class) where they will wait with supervision to be picked up by their Eagle Extras teacher. We help the Kindergartners get to the auditorium the first week. Kids enrolled in the afterschool programs of Hephzibah or Oak Park Friends School can participate in Eagle Extras and just need to check in with their respective programs before going to the Eagle Extras class. For kids in other after school programs, you need to check with those programs directly to see if they can make accommodations to pick up your child once their Eagle Extras class is over.

Limited Space/Waitlist: Space is limited and classes are filled on a first come first serve basis. Please register early to reserve your child’s spot in the class(es).  Also please don’t hesitate to utilize the wait list option if a class is showing as full when you try to enroll. We will do our best to accommodate all interested.

Cancellations: Classes with an outdoor component may be canceled due to inclement weather.  Please be advised that efforts will be made to make up the missed time when feasible. Refunds will not be issued for classes cancelled due to weather. Classes that have to be canceled due to an instructor emergency or illness will be handled on a case by case basis.

Scholarships are available! If your child qualifies for free/reduced lunch you are eligible for one scholarship per session per child. If your child does not currently qualify for free/reduced lunch, but you have a financial hardship making it difficult to pay for a class, there are additional funds available for these circumstances as well.

  • Free/Reduced Lunch: If you already have qualified for free/reduced lunch, watch your email for a note from Ms. Mura with a list of codes that will enable you to sign up for a class for free. While these codes you receive will work on all classes, your student is only eligible for one class per session. If you have more than one student at Irving, each student is eligible for one class per session. Please do not use the codes to enroll in more than one class per session.
  • Not qualified for Free/Reduced Lunch, but have a financial hardship? If you are in need of financial help and are not currently qualified for free/reduced lunch, please email Ms. Mura, smura@op97.org, requesting a scholarship so she can get you the assistance needed to register your child.

Payment Plans! When you are registering you can elect to participate in a payment plan at no additional cost to you! Hooray!
