The SOTW is to keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself throughout the school day. When you keep your hands, feet, objects to self you are being a safe, responsible Irving student.


Mrs. White was nominated for a staff like by Maddie Branum because she always keeps us ready for the future, and she does it in a fun way.  Mr. Knight was nominated by Michelle Forlemu because he gives us something to learn every day.  Mr. Faulkner was nominated for a staff like by Ryan Roberts because he always handles things well even if someone is being difficult.  Mr. Wagner was nominated by Hailey Kubik because he is a great teacher. I always learned something new from his snapple lids.


If you are interested in being a Summer Reading Volunteer at the Public Library, you can pick up the application from Mrs. Cejda in the library.  All Irving Library books are due back May 10.
