Irvington Principal Announcement

Help Make our School Grounds Shine!

Dear Irvington Staff and Families:
 Please join Celina Garrido-Meyer, our new Assistant Principal, and myself on Saturday, 8/23 to help make Irvington even more beautiful!

This is a Portland Public Schools and Irvington PTA supported work party that gives us an opportunity to spruce up our school grounds for a fresh clean start to the school year.  Come join us to work and play for part or all of the morning everything helps!  We will have pruning, trimming, weeding and mulching to keep us busy.

We will also have refreshments to keep us going as we work.  

Please bring any tools you might usually use for yard work.  Wheelbarrows are great.  Rakes and shovels are great.  Work gloves make things easier too.

When you arrive please check in under the basketball cover and we'll let you know where you are most needed.

Please call or e-mail Jessica with any questions:  jgnmsanders@gmail.com / 503.281.2770

Please RSVP today so we can plan our work accordingly.  

We need YOUR help to make it happen!
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
