  • Junior Charity League   Irvin Students and Staff Give Back to Community

    Irvin continues to give back to our community. Irvin was one of eleven schools who recently completed fundraising drives to benefit A Change of Clothes, an effort sponsored by the Junior Charity League of Concord (JCL). Our schools raised more than $13,000 and collected hundreds of pairs of gloves and socks and other items for JCL store.  JCL provides a supply of basic clothing and toiletries to CCS students in need. The organization works with school counselors and social workers to identify students in need. The students are transported to the JCL store to ‘shop’ for the items.  Schools that participated in this year’s drive were: Harrisburg, W.M. Irvin, Beverly Hills, Boger, Bethel, Pitts School Road, Royal Oaks and Mount Pleasant Elementary; C.C. Griffin Middle and Hickory Ridge High.

  • Proactive Leaders Irvin's Proactive Leaders
    Every quarter, students vote for a student in their class whom they believe best exhibits one of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids.  Those students receive a "Principal's Leadership" pin and are awarded a special treat for being school leaders.  

    For the first quarter, those "proactive leaders" visited a local assisted living facility to read with the residents.  The two groups (old and young) learned some lessons from each other.  A picture of our "proactive leaders" is posted on the front bulletin board as you enter the building.  Our next round of "leaders" will be chose in late January when the second quarter closes.
