Testing week is OVER! These kids in Room 10 were completely amazing. Most completed all four SBAC tests this week. The tests include two Language Arts tests and two Math tests. The tests are challenging! I was proud of the way students stayed focused and completed the task at hand.
IMPORTANT!! Our jog-a-thon is fast approaching. We are grateful for each and every donation, and believe me, those donations make a HUGE difference in your child’s school experience. Here is a message from Mr. Bridgens about the jog-a-thon:

How to Help: We need your help to raise as much money as possible for the PTO. The Irving PTO has helped purchase additional teacher time each year over the last 8 years. PTO’s contribution to supporting students is invaluable. In order to continue to provide the same support to Irving we need to raise as much money as possible during the Jog-a-thon. The PTO has set a goal of $15,000. If each student were to collect $45 in pledges we would reach our goal. Please use the link below to contribute to the Jog-a-thon and also help spread the word via social media and email. You can send links to friends and family as well. Thanks for your efforts in supporting the Irving school community!

Thank You for Supporting Irving Students and the Irving PTO!
The field trip to the Aurora Colony is almost here! Friday, May 24 is the date of our trip. Please refer to the letter enclosed in the Friday Folder with all the details. A couple of very important details to take note of immediately: First, this trip costs $9.00 per student, and per chaperone. Please send in the money as soon as possible. Next, this trip takes place outside of normal school hours. The bus will leave at 7:15am, and arrive back at Irving around 3:15pm. This means students need to arrive at school early and leave late, meaning alternate transportation to and from school if students ride a bus. Finally, we will need a lunch count no later than Monday, May 20. We need to know if your child will be bringing a lunch from home, or will need to order a sack lunch from the cafeteria.
Mark your calendar for these important dates:
May 24: Aurora field trip; Track Meet, 4:30 Willamette High School
May 27: Memorial Day, no school
May 31: Jog-a-thon
Communication is so important! Please watch for information in the Friday folder. Check out our class blog.
