PTO Walk-a-Thon Update

Wow, what an incredible day! Our students had a blast walking and dancing around the track today celebrating a successful Walk-a-Thon! Thank you to all of our students and families who participated. You are helping to fund so many incredible events and projects at IRE!

Didn't get the chance to donate? There's still time! We will continue to collect donations through next Friday via Venmo, Square and check.


Our PTO will be distributing incentives for all students who earned them next week! For students who reach an additional incentive during the extra week of fundraising, they will receive those incentives the first week of November!

Incentives for top earners will be determined based on donations received by midnight tonight! We will be announcing our Principal and Assistant Principal for the day on Monday!

We will also be drawing names for the students that get to pie Mr. Assmann on Monday!

Thank you again to everyone who has participated, we couldn't do this without you!
