Irving Reads - May 20 & 21

Because Splash Day will be on the same day as Irving Reads, we will have the students take home their book packets on Friday, May 20th.

On Monday, May 21st, EVERYONE in the building will drop everything and read at 10 AM and 2 PM for 10 minutes, and students will come to the library to choose a FREE CHOICE book. These books are for them to keep and will have labels in them for you to write their names on. Please stop by at your usual library checkout time.

Dance Party

I'm sure several of you have LOTS of Attendance Stars!'s time to turn those in! We will be having a Dance Party with Mrs. Aquino on Tuesday, May 24th in the Cafeteria. We will be accepting a total of 85 stars accumulated for the year! Email Aquino if you have any questions! :)
