Principal Keith Mahone, Assistant Principal Larue Fitch, Dean Taisha Goff and Dean Nicole Deloncker are very excited about the 2019-2020 school year at Irving Middle School. The administration wants to engage every student via a variety of programs including after-school programs. The impact of afterschool programs goes far beyond the recognized benefit of providing safe, supervised environments in the hours after school. In addition to facing more demanding academics, middle school students are dealing with the challenge of meeting social and developmental benchmarks as well. Afterschool programs can provide an avenue for helping those students successfully navigate these challenges while building skills necessary for academic success, learning to get along with others, and fostering positive attitudes toward community and school.
Our goal at Irving is 100% student participation, and we have a lot of different programs that we are offering to students. The afterschool programs and clubs that will be hosted this year are; Chess Club, Connecting with Crafts, Crochet Club, Gaming Club, IMSA Fusion, Poetry Club, Recreational Club, Writing Club, Taste Buds Cooking, Drama Club, Tigerettes, Video Gaming Club, Dream Campaign, Yoga, Art Club, Coding Club, Cooking Club and Honor Reading . We look forward to an engaging and active year!
