Dear Irving Families,

It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that I announce I will be leaving the principal position at Irving Elementary this year.  The school has been my home for the last seven years and during that time I’ve come to know and care so deeply about the students and staff.  Thank you for the great honor of working with your children in our school!  In the coming year, I will be transitioning to a new position at the district level, with the opportunity to work with leaders at several schools throughout Pueblo.  I eagerly look forward to returning from time to time and seeing so many familiar and friendly faces.  I wish you all a happy summer and I hope to see you around!


Mr. Johnson

Please remember that all students in grade K-6 will be dismissed at 12:00 p.m. this Friday.  If your student rides the bus, they will be at their stop about three hours 10 minutes earlier.  For example, if your student normally arrives at their stop at 3:30 p.m., they will arrive around 12:15-12:20.  Please be sure to arrive a few minutes ahead of time for your students.  Thank you!

It's PARCC Testing Season (April 3-19, 2017)

posted Mar 28, 2017, 1:18 PM by Theodore Johnson

It's that time of year again!  Starting next week, students in grades 3-6 will begin doing their annual PARCC assessment testing.  These are state required tests that students participate in each year.  Students are evaluated based on their knowledge and skills in the areas of Literacy and Mathematics (5th grade students will also take a Science Assessment). Both the Literacy and Mathematics assessments are divided into several units.  Students will test between 60-90 minutes daily during the next couple of weeks. 
The PARCC assessments provide an opportunity for our students to "shine" and to demonstrate all that they have learned during the year. Much like an athlete preparing for the big game, it's important that they get plenty of rest and they come to school with a "winning attitude."  You can support this by ensuring that they get to bed on time and reminding them to do their best each and every day.  We would also request that you avoid scheduling appointments and other interruptions to their day during this window of time.  Thanks in advance for your support.
