The PTA holds several fundraisers each year. Our largest fundraisers are:
- Fall Festival: Held in October this event is a wonderful time to get the Irby spirit. Join us for games, food and fun. The silent auction is where most of our money is raised.
- Gift Wrap Sale: Held in late October early November. The children will bring home books to sell gift-wrap items. It is a great way for the children to do some holiday shopping.
- Art Fundraiser: This was new last year and had a great response. Who doesn’t want their child’s art on a keepsake item? This was a lot of fun and the children loved seeing their art.
Other Events and Fundraisers:
- Entertainment Book Sales: This is done through the office so you don’t have to keep up with anything. Just send in your order slip and we will send it home with your child.
- Yearbook Sales
- Teacher Appreciation Week
- Educational Fair
- Organizing of Volunteers: You must fill out a background check to volunteer at Irby. These are available at the front office.
- Field Days
- McDonald’s Nights
