More Kindergarten Updates!

We had another wonderful week in Kindergarten! Thank you to those families who attended Curriculum Night on Wednesday. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to attend – there are many other opportunities coming up for you to get to know other Irving families, either through volunteering for events or just coming by to have a good time! That being said….

From PTO:

Irving Tiger T-Shirts will be available soon for families that are interested in purchasing one for their child. Expect to see an updated size/price list come home soon in your child’s red folder. You can either stop by the office to buy one or send money with your child and a note indicating what size you would like ordered. I will deliver the money to the office and send the t-shirt home in your child’s backpack.

A Fundraising Committee will be meeting for the first time this Monday, September 28 at 6:30 p.m. here at Irving. All parents are welcome to attend to give input into how fundraising for our school can be made more effective through efforts such as a Direct Donation Drive. Contact Athena Shay, PTO Fundraising Chair, at [arlshay16@gmail.com] or (541) 606-7005 if you have questions or want to be involved.

The first big PTO event of the year, the Monster Mash Bingo Bash, is coming up at the end of October. This is a super fun event that also helps to raise funds for our school. Please contact Donnita Bassinger, PTO Events Chair, at [scott.donnita@att.net] or (541) 913-5272 if you are interested in volunteering for special events such as this.

Ongoing PTO volunteer needs include the School Store each Wednesday before school begins, Popcorn Day every other Wednesday morning, and the Square 1 Art fundraiser. These are excellent opportunities to become involved in our school community and have a positive impact for all of our students here at Irving by providing funds for field trips, classroom supplies, and more amazing things than I can even list!

One last housekeeping note:

I have updated the “Book Orders” page and hopefully the revised instructions will fix the glitch that kept so many of our families from ordering through Scholastic online. I was able to manually enter all of the paper orders I received and am pleased to say that we earned 10 free books for our classroom with the size of our order. Thank you!!

Best,

Ms. McFarland

    Can you tell me a little bit about the school store? I don’t know anything about it. 🙂

      Another great question! The school store is stocked by the PTO and is run by a parent volunteer every Wednesday morning before school begins. The “store” is set up on a cart in the cafeteria and students can buy trinkets there. The type of items for sale changes seasonally and by availability. All proceeds benefit Irving PTO which, in turn, benefits our classrooms. Some days there are many, MANY children wanting to buy items, so additional volunteers are welcome to contact PTO directly to assist with the school store. You can contact Ron Lamie, PTO President, at [irvingptobethel@gmail.com] or (541) 543-4324 and he can connect you with the School Store Coordinator.
