Walk and Roll to SchoolWalk + Roll.

Wednesday, October 10th, is Walk to School Day.  To celebrate, schools across Oregon are holding Walk and Roll events that challenge students, families and educators to walk, bike or scooter to school.  These challenges are a great reminder of the benefits of active transportation.  Try ditching the car on October 10th and celebrate your health, the environment, and school spirit.  Live too far to bike or walk to school?  Try parking the family car a few blocks from the school and walking the rest of the way.  You can even participate by walking to and from your school bus stop. 

Irving students who Walk and Roll to school on Wednesday October 10th will be entered into a drawing for prizes including a scooter!

Counselor’s Corner

Counselor’s Corner

Welcome Back!

My name is Elizabeth Johnson and I am the school counselor at Irving.  This is my thirteenth year as a school counselor and my third year at Irving. 

During September, I am visiting all K-5 classes at Irving and introducing myself to the students.  It has been a blast to meet each of them and share a bit about myself and the role of the school counselor.  In the coming months, as part of my comprehensive guidance curriculum, I will be teaching lessons in all classes reinforcing the Irving Pillars, as well as addressing academic, personal/social and career development.

Additionally, I will run a variety of small counseling groups throughout the year.  We work on developing skills including: building friendships, impulse control, anger management, academic solutions and addressing changing families (including divorce, grief, or other changes in living situations).  If you are interested in having your child participate, please feel free to contact me or your child’s classroom teacher.

Please stop by my office (located behind the main office) and I look forward to meeting or reconnecting with you! J
