Garden Clean Up at Irving

Fourth grade students, along with their Teachers, Ms. Cacan and Ms. Perrigo braved the cold and wet weather to clean up the school garden and get it ready for planting this spring.  Irving is a level one Green School and has put forth new efforts toward sustainable practices including participating in the Love Food Not Waste program.  Students at Irving participate in composting their food at lunch each day. 

 

 

 

 

Fun Learning and Team Work

Students in Mrs. Moss and Ms. Cacan’s classroom work together to solve a group mystery.  Mrs. Moss was the recipient of a Bethel Education Foundation Grant for the purchase of a program called Breakout.  The Breakout game involves students working together to unlock a series of locks.  Students must use the contents and clues they are given to find the combinations to the locks.  Breakout has connections to content being taught in the classroom such as social studies, math, and reading!

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!
