One School, One Book
We are kicking off the "One School, One Book" program this year reading the book The Lemonade War. This book follows brother and sister, Evan and Jessie, as they compete to see who can sell the most lemonade and the winner gets to keep all the money earned.
Every child in grades Kindergarten-5th will be receiving a book that is theirs to keep. We will be reading it at school and sometimes the students will be asked to read parts at home. Included below are links to YouTube where you can listen to each chapter being read to you.
Post photos or videos of you and your family reading the book at home to our Facebook page or Twitter using the hashtags #schk12 #pantherpride #irvinglemonadewar.
At the conclusion of the book students will be given a chance to win a real lemonade stand they can take home and start their own business this summer. More details to follow!
Ms. Jones and the Irving staff have finished this year's ISTEP video. Thanks to all the students who appeared in the video as well. Hope you enjoy!!
ISTEP Testing begins April 17th. Please plan to have your children in school during this crucial testing time. 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are learning as much as they can right now before testing begins. Please support them at home by making sure they are practicing reading and math facts every night.
On Friday, February 24th, Irving celebrated black history month with each grade level/classroom participating in a variety of ways. Please click the links below to watch the presentations.
