A message from IPTSO (Irving Parent, Teacher, Student Organization):

Hello everyone! We wanted to take a quick minute to let you know about an opportunity coming up in September for you to help make sure the amazing staff at Irving is fed during parent teacher conferences.  As a way to show the teachers and staff how much we appreciate them, a meal is provided each day of conferences, and we need your help with providing sides and desserts. If you are interested helping feed the staff (and they really appreciate it!) and did not fill out the IPTSO form, please email Tara Hansen at and let her know you would like to be added to our list. We will be putting together an event in Sign Up Genius in early September and would love for you to be a part of making sure our staff is taken are of!!

From the Principal:

Welcome to the Irving Middle School website. It is my privilege to serve the Irving Middle School community as principal. Here at Irving, it is our mission to develop personal responsibility, ethical behaviors, cultural awareness, life-long learning and academic excellence within our students. Our mission is accomplished through the tireless work of talented educators I am proud to work alongside.

At Irving, our staff work collaboratively on interdisciplinary teams to ensure the highest quality education is provided to every student. It is our steadfast belief that all students can learn and achieve to their full potential. Additionally, Irving students are provided with community outreach opportunities to develop cultural awareness and leadership qualities within each child.

No child’s education is fully realized without a successful partnership between school and home. I invite you to use this site as a communication tool to stay involved with your child’s experience at Irving.

I look forward to partnering with you through the school year.
