Library/DLC Update from Ms. Popkin:

Parade Information: We will be broadcasting the parade next week through a Zoom webcast. I have posted the attached information through SeeSaw, and I will post the Zoom links next week on Thursday in SeeSaw. Because this is a webinar, viewers will be asked for a name and email to enter the webinar. The directions are in the flyer. You are welcome to share this information with your families. Let me know if you have any questions.

AM and Full Day Classes: https://irvingisd-net.zoom.us/j/81045797123

PM Classes: https://irvingisd-net.zoom.us/j/84860583483

Book Character Day Reading: Last year, Marcela and I did a virtual story time about cats on Book Character Day. Attached is the link if you would like to view this again. It is about 20 minutes.
