Dear Parents and Families,
Our first annual “Irving Open House,” will be held this Wednesday October 24th from 5:15-7:00pm. The evening will begin with a dinner from 5:15-6:15 pm followed by a brief “parent talk” from 6:15-6:30. From 6:30-7:00pm we will have a student led “open house” where your kiddo will walk you through the room discussing important information about our classrooms, routines, and expectations. We can’t wait to see you then!
Wednesday, October 31st, we will be making fall lanterns out of jars. Please have your student bring in a clean label-free jar no smaller than a pint but no lager than a quart. We will be decorating them with tissue paper. We will also eat apples and caramel dip and drink apple cider. If anyone is able to donate label free pint or quart sized jars, tissue paper, sliced apples, caramel dip or apple cider that would be wonderful. We also need empty paper towel or toilet paper rolls for a social studies activity. 🙂 Let me know if you already one of these items sitting around that you’d like to donate, or would like to volunteer to donate an item and I can email you one item to send in with your kiddo. Thanks!
This Friday, October 26th, the Irving PTO is hosting a fun family get together at school from 6-8pm. It will be a “Monster Mash Bingo Bash.” Students and families can wear costumes and have fun together as a school community!
I had a parent reach out to a contact she has and put me in touch with someone from Autzen. Our field trip on November 1st WILL include a short tour of Autzen and the kids will get to run through the tunnel and onto the field. For this reason we will get back to the school at 2:25 instead of 1:25. SORRY for the change again and thank you for being understanding. We want to give the kids the best experience we can. I only have 3 chaperones so far. I’m hoping to have twice that many. Please let me know if you’re available.
Room 12 is quickly running out of snack. We typically only provide snack after first recess when we have donations. Thanks to the families who brought in snack im or brought snack in multiple times! Our kids really appreciate it! If you are able to contribute, healthy snacks like crackers, fruit snacks, etc. and you have not yet donated please think about it. It would be much appreciated.
Wednesday October 24th: Irving Open House 5:15-7:00pm
Thursday November 1st: Nearby Nature/Science Factory Field Trip. More Details to Come!
As always, please contact us with any questions or concerns. Have a wonderful week!
