December 5, 2018

The skill of the week is to practice kindness.  Bring your likes to lunch to purchase “Irving Shoutouts” to write a classmate, friend or teacher or positive note or thank you.  Shout outs will be hung up in the hallway by the cafeteria so all Irving aardvarks will be able to see a lot of kindness in action!


Introducing THE HOLIDAY CLOSET:  Holidays can be stressful!  Sometimes we can’t find the time or the funds to buy for those we love.  If you find yourself in need of a gift for a loved one but are without the funds to make it happen, please use jump code YKOZ and complete the short form.  The form closes on Thursday evening, December 6.  Again, that’s jump code YKOZ.
