Quote of the Week

May your turkey be plump, your potatoes and gravy have never a lump, may your pies take the prize. And may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs. Charlie Brown


I can't believe it is already Thanksgiving! It has been a fast and furious fall. I have so much to be thankful for this year! My JR Irvin family is right at the top of that list. I am so glad to be here and work with such a great staff. Our kiddos are so lucky! Thanks for all you do! I don't think I could ever tell you often enough how much I appreciate you and the job you do for our kids! Have a safe and restful Thanksgiving holiday! Gobble, gobble!!

Ring the Bell!

Thank you to Coach Schneider who did a fabulous job with his debut in school theater! The 3rd grade program was an absolute success. He always has a smile on his face and has quickly become a valued member of the Irvin family. We appreciate you Coach!


Three 4th and 5th grade girls earned lunch with the principal on Monday for attending Dream Box Learning each morning. These girls have had perfect attendance with one exception of a sickness. The girls shared with me that they loved DreamBox and that they had fun while learning. This was only after asking me what the roles of the ladies in the office were!
