Principal's Post

Dear Irish Families,


Thank you to the many families who were represented at our September General Parent Meetings. Your voice is valued and appreciated. Remember that as your child's parents, you are your child's first teachers. The example you set for your child is one that will resonate with them.


At the General Parent Meeting we covered many topics. We will share the presentation with you so you have it as a point of reference.


  • PTA Board Introduction
  • Treasurer's Report
  • Parent/Student Handbook highlights (stressed dress code, punctuality to school, avoiding early dismissals, absence, late work)
  • Spirit Wear
  • Color Run
  • Box Tops, Amazon Smile, Scrips Gift Cards
  • Spirit Nights
  • Family Service Hours


Please continue to pre-register your children for our October 19th Color Run and pre-register other runners as well! Utilize the Boosterthon web platform tools to share the pledging opportunity with your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers through sharing your child's unique pledging link on social media and email. Our FUNDRAISING GOAL this year is $25,000.
