A Note From Your Principal and Our Amazing PTA

Students celebrated their fundraising efforts with the Buzzy's Rock and Run last Friday, March 3rd. Please see a few of the memories captured below. Classes worked hard decorating banners to carry onto the track and so many families came to cheer on their bees! There were lots of smiles, sweaty faces, music and laughter. Thank you so much to our IES families for supporting our Rock and Run fundraiser as well as our amazing PTA for planning such an awesome event! We appreciate everyone that participated. All of your contributions helped us meet our goal quickly and then exceed it!

We are happy to announce that this year’s Rock ‘N Run raised a total of $27, 343!

Your support will allow us to complete the special project for the year, providing a shade structure on the field for students and staff to enjoy for many years to come. That area stays bright and sunny all of the time. Students and their teachers can now enjoy having a shady spot to rest during recess, field day, class events etc.

Other items our bees enjoy through your fundraising efforts:

1. Additional Play Aways in the Library (student pick)

2. A visit from author Jerry Pallotta

3. Breakfast Buddies Events

4. Our Brand New Cookie Decorating Cart Activity led by PTA

Students are looking forward to snacking on snow cones and watching their principals get a pie in the face next week because they met and exceeded our goals! #pietheprincipal

2023 Jump Rope For Heart

Our IES Bees are beginning their Jump Rope unit and we have a tradition to tie it in to the American Heart Association to help bring awareness and support of “Heart Health.”

During this unit, your child(ren) will receive and bring home information regarding making donations online to the American Heart Association and recognizing Irmo Elementary School as an American Heart Association - Heart Healthy School. Please see the flier linked below.

Thank you so much for your support.
