Irving Park Elementary Students Participate in International Walk to School Day


A colorful parade appeared on the sidewalks leading to Irving Park Elementary Wednesday. Students, their parents and community members marked International Walk to School Day on Oct. 8 by walking to school together.

 

The walkers gathered at Kirkwood Park and Moe’s Southwest Grill on Battleground Ave. this morning before walking to school with colorful signs reminding drivers to keep it slow and safe, especially around schools.

IT'S S.P.I.C.E. GRANT TIME!! 

Online S.P.I.C.E. Grant Applications Now Available on Website

 

S.P.I.C.E. (Strengthening Parent Involvement In Children's Education) grew out of a community planning effort by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro and GCC of PTAs to help families and communities improve education.  Research shows that children perform better in school if their parents are involved.  Jointly recognizing the significant impact of parent involvement, the two organizations have joined together to promote the National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships.

 

Up to $1000 is available for programs you would like to try at your school to increase parent involvement.

 

Deadline for Applying is Wednesday, October 29th at 11:59pm.

 

Note: These grants are available to PTAs or PTSAs in good standing.
