April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, underscoring the important role military children play in the armed forces community. We have had an exciting month as we "purpled up" with so many activities. All of these activities were planned to celebrate our children and all the hard work they have put in this year.
As we embrace the future, we are trying to move Irwin to a culture of excellence where we are never satisfied with good, but always striving for greatness.
We will also continue our Project Based Learning (PBL) approach to teaching and learning using our Interrelated and Integrated Model. These integrated units of study will combine our College and Career Ready Standards and curriculum, allowing students to use technology, connect to communities and the real world, and build skills for college, career, and life. Teaching in such a contextual manner promotes collaboration, critical thinking, and knowledge retention among students.
