The Irving Schoolyard Project team is hosting a public meeting about the plan for the Irving blacktop on January 18th at the school. I’m most excited about the U10 turf “athletic field.”

Greetings, and Happy New Year!

I hope you can join us at Irving School on Wednesday, January 18, from 7:00-8:00 pm to learn about our most ambitious PTO initiative to date, the Irving Schoolyard Project. As you may know, Irving has almost no outdoor green space and we have a vision for something better.

This public meeting will explain our Master Plan for a new schoolyard, which is more than only a playground. It includes outdoor classrooms, a playing field, and opportunities to incorporate environmental initiatives into the curriculum. We hope it will be a place that all Oak Parkers seek out to play, learn and enjoy.

The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the Irving School Auditorium (1125 S. Cuyler). Parking is available in the Ridgeland Ave. parking lot. A flyer is attached. Please feel free to share this information with any friends and neighbors who may be interested.

Hope to see you soon!
