A Message from the Principal

Principal’s Message

Dear Families,
It's hard to believe that we only have eight more weeks of school left. Our last quarter of school is usually a busy time for students, staff, and families. While our staff will be focused on keeping students engaged in learning, there are many fun events to look forward to. Next Thursday is "Take Your Child to Work" day. If you are planning to take your child to work, please send a note with your student the day before to ensure that your child is counted as excused. Also indicate, whether your child will be absent half day or for the full day. Pleasemark your calendar for our annual Spaghetti dinner along with our Middle Level Science Fair on Friday April 25th.

Kindergarten registration is under way. If you know of families in our Irvington community who will have incoming kindergarteners this fall, please encourage them to register early. Early registration helps us have smaller classroom sizes by ensuring that we will have enough staff for our students.

 Lisa McCall, Irvington Principal
