IES Family and Friends,
It is with great excitement that I begin my tenth year as principal of Irvington Elementary
School.  I continue to be impressed by this community and this school.  It is truly an honor to
be the principal where the staff, students, parents, and community members come together
toward a common goal.  That goal is also our school's vision statement.  It states:  "Working
together toward success for all."  I firmly believe that when all of us work together toward
that goal that great things can and WILL happen.  As we continue this journey toward
success, I want to remind each of you that my door is always open.  Simply call or stop by
the school to see me.  I also encourage all of our families to become an active participant in
their child's education. 
We have many great things to offer the students here at IES.  In addition to the quality
instruction your child will receive in the classroom, we also have things your child can enjoy
outside the classroom.  There is basketball, archery, academic teams, chorus, boy scouts, girl
scouts, Extended School Services (ESS), 4-H, guest speakers, and JUST for kids after school
care, to name a few.  Be sure to contact the school for additional information about these and
other programs IES has to offer.
As we begin this, our first full year in the new IES building, we try each day to live out the
mission of IES.  We believe that cooperation + active learning + teamwork = success. 
"C+A+T=S"  Go Cats!
***New this year***
As many of you know, in an effort to minimize potential risks, ALL guests that
join us for our big "in-school" events like Grandparents' Breakfast, Community
Day Dinner, Honor Roll Breakfast, etc...will be scanned with a hand-held metal
detector.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we go through this
process.  Also, all visitors must provide a valid ID and check in at the front
office in order to go down the hallway.
Thank you in advance for your continued support of IES.  I look forward to another school
year as we work together toward success for all.
