|Irving Elementary Redesign Meeting – TONIGHT
A note from Irving: We would like tos hare some exciting news. Nineteen school districts from across the State of Kansas were selected to participate in the Kansas Redesign Gemini II. The Redesign Project was created in an effort to redesign public education across the State of Kansas. Irving School was one of the schools selected to participate. We are eager to use this opportunity to improve and expand education for all of our students.
One of the innovative projects we envision at Irving is providing an outdoor classroom learning site for our children. We have received favorable feedback from our staff and students about the possibility of having Winfield’s first outdoor classroom right here at Fourth Street and Harter.
The ways in which Irving could utilize an outdoor classroom are limitless, having far-reaching effects for our students in years to come. We would like to invite you to attend a short presentation put together by our students and staff to provide you with more information.
We are exploring ways to involve Winfield businesses an the community in the creation of our outdoor classroom. The development of our outdoor classroom will include staff, students, families, and our community. We are currently in the planning stages of the outdoor classroom, and we would appreciate your involvement in the creation as we get closer to the building stage. We look forward to recognizing those involved in this project.
In addition to building an outdoor classroom here at Irving, we envision involved the community in new and exciting ways by creating a volunteer program. Using “outside the box” thinking, we hope to enlist community volunteers in a variety of settings. Some of the many ways our students and staff envision community involvement are: lunch buddies, recess pals, art helpers, music class singing friends, field trip buddies, reading and math helpers, good morning greeters, crosswalk guards, life skills coaches, or simply buddying up to play games with children. We are open to new and exciting ways to implement your skills as a volunteer.
Please plan to attend our Redesign Gemini II presentation on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 7:00pm in the Irving Library to discover how to be a part. If you are unable to attend and would like to help, email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
