Dear Parents, Students and Irwin Community,
Although we have had an excellent season for skiing and snowshoeing at Irwin, staff and students alike are ready to put away the winter equipment and dig out the skipping ropes. Regardless of what the weather does, Irwin is moving into spring mode as we plan the various activities that occur during the last stint of the school year.
The official date for Earth Day is April 22 but we will have to gage where our spring thaw is at prior to selecting a day for our annual clean-up. We will keep people posted. In the meantime, a small group of junior students will be travelling with Mrs. Brown to Camp Wanikkita on April 23rd to participate in an Earth Day Summit with schools from across the Trillium board of education.
In the meantime, our entire group of grade six students will be representing Irwin Memorial at the Jack Bionda Arena on April 8th for a half day of training presented by the “Right To Play”. These students will be key participants in our “Today We Play” Day, Thursday May 8, 2014. If you are interested in learning more about the “Right to Play” in schools, please check out the following web link: http://www.righttoplay.com/canada/righttoplayschools/universitycolleges/Pages/TodayWePlay.aspx
Our luncheon for Irwin Friends and Volunteers is fast approaching on April 16th from 12:30 – 2:00. If you have not received your invitation, please double-check in your child’s school bag and/or call the school. We look forward to this opportunity to enjoy lunch with you and to thank you for all of your contributions.
Hopefully, the weather will warm up soon and we will be able to enjoy our yard and playground as the month progresses. Enjoy the upcoming season!
