Our school will be participating in a school wide coin drive. We will have a grade level competition to see who collects the most money over the week. Each day next week we will have a “dress up” day.
Tuesday, Salute the Loot: Wear your favorite sports team apparel
Wednesday, Crazy for Cash: Wear your wildest hair style
Thursday, Irv and Ivy Day: Dress in school attire or colors
Friday, Dreaming of Money: Wear your PJs to school
Amazing things continue to happen for our students! Recently we learned that Carolinas Healthcare System and Second Harvest Food Back is coming to our school on Tuesday, February 27th, with their "School Mobile Pantry." Every family is invited to participate in the program. Families will be able to take home nonperishable food items, bread, fresh produce, meat and eggs. The pantry will be open from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. We look forward to hosting this wonderful program!
Irvin families are invited to a dinner and a musical show featuring our 2nd graders. The dinner will be soup, and students will be eating out of clay bowls they made in their art class. Any donation amount for dinner will be appreciated. Following the show, join our teachers who will provide tips for helping your child become a better reader! All students will receive a free book.
2017-2018 yearbooks are now available for purchase for $15! If sending an order in with your student, please be sure checks are made payable to Strawbridge Studios, Inc. You can also place your order online at www.strawbridge.net, and use the online code of 111651.
Here is a quote from Mrs. Herum that sums this up perfectly! "Thank you @emilyfranESL for being an inspiration to all. Thank you @Chobani and @TheEllenShow for the generous gift that will allow us to continue making @wmirvinelem a great place!"
