World Language Program

The World Language Program will come back to Irving this Winter! But we can’t do it without you! This program is taught by both Irving community members and staff. We have taught American Sign Language, French, German, Greek, Mandarin Chinese, Polish and Spanish in the past! This program runs either during lunch/recess or after school in the cold winter months. Students are introduced to basic words and phrases in each language. Do you speak another language? Would you be interested in sharing your knowledge with the Irving student body? We would love to offer whatever language you can bring! Instructors are paid. We will also need to recruit a co-chair to train for next year! Please reach out to Lauren VanderBerg at irvingworldlp@gmail.com with interest or any questions. 

Eagle Extras is BACK

Registration begins TONIGHT, September 14 at 8:30pm! Looking for a fun and easy way to have your Irving student try something new? We’ve got classes from Mandala-making to TV News creating; Cheerleading to LEGO building, and lots lots more! The classes take place right after school so there is no extra work on your part to get your kids to another location — how great is that?! Scholarships and payment plans are also available. Get ALL the details, including the registration link at our Eagle Extras page: https://irvingpto.com/eagle-extras. Questions? Email us at eagleextras@irvingpto.com.

Movie Night on Friday 9/16

Please join us on the Irving blacktop for the return of Movie Night! We will be featuring an outdoor screening of “Night at the Museum” starting just after dusk (approx. 7:30pm). But we don’t have to wait until dark for the fun to begin! There will be a DJ starting around 6pm, as well as pizza and concessions available for purchase. Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets or even sleeping bags to enjoy the evening right in our school’s backyard!

Ways to Get Involved

There are SO many ways to get involved at Irving and we would LOVE your help in any way you can spare! Just to name a few:

  1. Become a Room Parent – Get a direct connection into your student’s classroom! We would love to have two room parents per classroom, but are especially in need of parents in rooms that have NO volunteers yet; check here to see if your student’s classroom still needs help! Once all of our slots are full, we will schedule a short kick-off meeting to get everyone on the same page and ready to hit the ground running. You can also learn more about what the role involves here.
  2. Lead or Join a Committee – From helping with planning extracurriculars like our “Eagle Extras” to the book fair, the school yearbook, and everything in between, we would LOVE your help! Please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinators and let them know you’re interested!
  3. Volunteer for One-Time Only Opportunities – If you’re not sure you have time for any regular, ongoing commitments, we would still love your help! Please submit this form to indicate your interest and we will reach out when help is needed with things like event set-up, manning the cash register at one of our fundraisers, delivering new family yard signs or other one-time only activities.

New Families Night & First PTO Meeting

It’s a double feature! Are you and your student new to Irving? Did your student just start kindergarten, or maybe your older student transferred from another school? Maybe your student attended Irving last year but you still feel “new” due to the disconnectedness we’ve all experienced over the past couple of years! Please join us Thursday, Sept. 8 at 6pm in the school lunch room to hear from our principal Ms. Mura and some of our PTO members about all the happenings at Irving School! Then head on over to the library for our first PTO meeting of the year at 7pm. We will be discussing open board positions, upcoming events, and more! If you can’t make the PTO meeting in person, join us on zoom at 7pm:
