    Teacher of the Year 2017 - 2018

    toy 17


    We are proud to announce Ms. Irma Dominguez as our Teacher of the Year for 2017 - 2018 school year.  She works tirelessly to make sure her students achieve all the success they can in the classroom and outside of the classroom.  She is teaching 4th-grade math and science, but has experience in several other grade levels and has worked in other schools in Irving ISD.  Her dedication to students always learning has been admired for years by many of us here at John Haley and in the community.

  • MJB Wood Group, Inc. - Our PIE, Partner in Education



    Once again our PIE has been making a difference at John Haley. They purchased a stream table to help students understand more about the changes our earth goes under each day. They have donated supplies for our nurse to use in the clinic such as bottled water to keep germs from spreading, new underwear for students that have accidents, and peppermints to settle an upset stomach. Last fall already MJB Wood had a breakfast for teachers and given away tons of gift cards.  They have helped us with the cost of a Science Night with the Perot Museum that enables the museum to come to our campus for free.  We are so excited for all the ways MJB Wood Group Inc.  works to have an impact at John Haley.  The long standing relationship with them has really made a difference in the education and experience for staff and students here at John Haley.

  •  Texas Cash Crops and the Liberty Tea Garden

    o;hoiu; ji;oan jrfd[ajfio;

    The gardens in our courtyard here at John Haley now have some crops growing in them that I thought you might enjoy sharing with your students.   The fourth-grade students have planted crops that are sold for cash here in the state of Texas including cotton, corn, wheat, and sorghum.  These beds are labeled with yellow signs and each crop has a label in the soil.  The fifth graders have planted a “Liberty Tea” garden where they are growing several herbs that colonists used to make herbal tea in defiance of the tea taxes that King George tried to impose during the time of the American Revolution.   As the herbs continue to grow, cuttings will be taken and donated to Irving Cares™ in order to provide fresh herbs to those in Irving who are in need of food assistance.   This bed is located alongside the picnic tables beneath a description of the garden posted to the wall in the garden.  The beds with the green signs are growing crops currently including radishes, kale, and turnips which will be tended and, when harvested, donated to the Irving Cares™ foundation for those in Irving who need food assistance.   Signs outside are posted in both English and Spanish and, if you have an opportunity, please take a moment while visiting with us to walk outside to see how the plants are growing and progressing.  Want to volunteer to help?  Please contact our parent center.

    So many additions have been made to make this a really nice place for lunch or class!

  • icreate star award iCreate Star Showcase Award Winners

    At the iCreate Next Generation Showcase, a small group of 5th grade boys were presented with the Irving ISD's top award for their documentary film entitled "Earth Today, Gone Tomorrow". These boys worked for over 2 months, gathering film and information as well as making soundtracks, and when finished, submitted their project through the iCreate website. The morning of the showcase, they were presented with the Shining Star Award, given to only 4 projects (one from each grade band) in the entire district. Out of 1,600 projects submitted, these boys were the top.

    We want to say how proud we are of this group of students. They worked tirelessly to learn how to film, learn what a documentary is, learn how to edit, and learn how to make film soundtrack. They made and distributed surveys and even conducted interviews. And though their final product was only 4 minutes long, it certainly embodies more than 2 months of solid work done before, during, and after school hours. We would also like to thank Brian Parham, their instructor for the project.  He did an amazing job of helping them learn new concepts and develop their ideas.  He devoted much of his time after school to help the students achieve their final result.
