Irving Families,Irving Snow

We are excited to share the District’s finalized plans to make up lost classroom time due to the six Snow Days and two Delayed Starts we’ve already experienced. These changes will allow Irving students to recover meaningful instructional time without putting a big dent in family summer plans. 

Here are the changes: (Click here for updated district calendar)

  • February 13 (previously a high school no-school day) will become a school day for all district students
  • February 20 (Presidents Day) will become a school day for all students
  • March 3 (previously a no-school day for K-8 students) will become a school day for all students
  • Monday June 19th, and Tuesday June 20thwill be full school days for K-11 students (seniors will have graduated)
  • June 20thwill now be the last day of school for students (it will be a full-day, not an early release)
  • If we have additional Snow Days this winter they may be added to the calendar after June 20th

Please mark these changes on your calendar and plan to have your child in school on these days.  All Bethel students will now be in the classroom for more hours than is required by the state, and we want to provide as much meaningful instructional time as possible. The cancelled school days have shown that each day of instruction is important for our children.

Thanks for your patience as the schedule was being reworked, and let me know if you have any questions.

Counselor’s Corner

January 2017

I find it unbelievable that we are over half-way through January, already! 

I wanted to, once again, thank the amazing Irving community for your incredible generosity with Irving’s Holiday Help Gift Card Program this year.  We heard from families that participated and below are some of the thoughts shared with us:

* Because of your kindness, I was able to buy gas and help care for my children.

* Thanks to the help from the Irving community, you blessed us and made our Holidays possible.

* We would not have been able to have presents for our children without your gift.

Again, we at Irving are so grateful and sincerely thank you all.

In counseling lessons this month, I am focusing on: comfortable and uncomfortable feelings (Kindergarten), personal space (1st and 2nd grades), diversity and teamwork (3rd grade), bullying prevention (4th and 5th grades). 

Next week, we will begin a new round of skill-building groups for all grades.  The emphases of these groups are: friendship groups for Kindergarten,1st and 3rd grades and a Girls Leadership Group (5th grade) – co-facilitated by a leader from Ophelia’s Place.  These groups will continue meeting through March.

As always, please check-in with your child to hear the latest regarding our classroom guidance visits!

Blanket Donation Drive January 23rd-January 27th

Irving Elementary would like to support The Egan Warming Center by collecting blankets during the week of January 23rd-27th.  Information was sent home to families in the Friday folder.  Please bring new or gently used blankets to your child’s teacher this week. Thank you for supporting our efforts to support the community. 

 

 

 

PTO Meeting Wednesday

Irving parents are invited to the PTO meeting tomorrow night in the Irving Library from 6:30-7:30pm.  The meeting is a great way to find out about opportunities to volunteer and upcoming school events.  Looking forward to seeing families tomorrow night! 

 

Cold/Flu Season

If you think your child has the flu, the following will help you and help prevent others from getting sick:

  • Stay at home for 24 hours until after fever has resolved without the aid of fever reducing medicines (e.g., Advil or Tylenol)
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick. Maintain distance from other people to prevent the spread of illness.
  • Wash hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also helpful in reducing the spread of the flu.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Wash hands after blowing the nose or coughing into a tissue, and dispose of tissues after use.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Get the flu vaccine! The flu vaccine is the best way to prevent seasonal flu.

Dogs on Campus

I am asking all families to use their best judgement as responsible dog owners when bringing their dogs on campus.  Everyone has their own comfort level around dogs.  Some students may be afraid of dogs while others not. Please think of the impact on other individuals prior to bringing your dog on campus.  If you are bringing your dog on campus at arrival or dismissal time we ask that your dog be on a leash at all times.  If you are unsure in any way about your dog’s behavior around people on a busy campus or around other animals then please refrain from bringing your pet onto school grounds.  Thank you in helping to keep Irving a safe and welcoming campus!

Debbi Holte received two BEF Grants for her fifth grade students!

Bethel Education Foundation Grant Winners at Irving

Congratulations to Debbi Holte, Karen Ferguson, and Erin Moss in receiving Bethel Education Foundation Grants! Cheers and tears greeted Bethel Education Foundation representatives as they handed out more than $36,000 in grants to dozens of Bethel educators.  The BEF will be funding a variety of exciting and innovative projects to benefit Bethel students at all grade levels, everything from technology to trips and rockets to robots. 

The educators didn’t know that the BEF was coming, but they heard the small group of 6th grade Shasta band students marching down the hall leading the grant parade into their classrooms.  The band members included three former Irving students!  Thank you Cael Petersen, Olivia Morris, and Andrew Bowman for showing off your amazing musical talents! 

The BEF has been raising funds to support teachers’ special projects for seven years!
