Pre-K Students Receive Books

Behind the Red Door

On Tuesday, April 10, our Pre-K students received their free copies of Behind the Red Door from Governor Nathan Deal, First Lady Sandra Deal, and Author/Musician Coy Bowles in honor of Georgia Pre-k's 25th Birthday. Approximately 86,000 students in pre-k programs across Georgia received a book. There was even a contest for Coy to come read to two Georgia pre-k classes. Irwin Pre-K did not win, but our students had fun making the video for the contest, and thought getting books was pretty COOL!

First Peas to the Table

First Peas to the TableSecond grade students thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Mrs. Betty Metts of Georgia Farm Bureau yesterday. Mrs. Metts read students the book First Peas to the Table by Susan Grigsby and spoke to each class about planting a garden and the importance of agriculture. As part of a grant provided by Georgia Farm Bureau, each second grade class has a raised bed garden that students will plant and take care of this Spring as they learn about plant life cycles in science. After their visit from Mrs. Metts, each participating student planted pea seeds as part of our ICES "First Peas to the Table" competition.
