For Mrs. Martinez, the school day doesn’t end at 3:15 p.m. She has been making home visits after school for many years. Mrs. Martinez was recently featured on CBS 11 News (view video here). She is this week’s The Ones For Texas!
Pictured here, Mrs. Martinez received a token of appreciation from an anonymous school neighbor after watching her news report on CBS 11.
Congratulations to Gloria Yeberino! She became a US citizen on Thursday, September 7th. Mrs. Yeberino moved to the United States in January of 2008. She became a parent volunteer at John R. Good Elementary later that year. Besides volunteering, she began to study English in Irving ISD for two years then continued at North Lake College. In 2011, she worked part-time at Good’s after-school program. In 2013, Mrs. Yeberino joined our family once again as our Parent Liaison. We, at John R. Good Elementary, are so proud of her accomplishment!
Once again, Good Elementary School received a generous gift from NCH Corporation. Principal Dr. Jill Tokumoto (center) and staff welcomed NCH representatives (from left) Mike McCall, Jennifer Owens, Jerry Angelilli and Roy Williams last week to accept gifts totaling $44,336. The money was raised through employee giving and the company’s annual Golf for Good tournament. NCH has partnered with Good for the past five years, providing support and volunteers for school events, mentoring opportunities and fundraising efforts.
Ms. Vigil chose Ms. Perla, our Building Manager, to receive the kindness wreath. Ms. Perla is a very kind- hearted person that works countless hours to keep our building in tip-top shape day in and day out. There isn’t a task she can’t handle and she does it with a smile.
Irving ISD was named the 2015 National Advanced Placement (AP) District of the Year for expanding student access to AP courses and improving AP Exam performance.
$22.5 million in scholarships were award to students in 2015. 137 scholars were awarded scholarships through The Irving Schools Foundation.
