Welcome to the week of January 26!
The second semester is in full swing at Great Hearts Irving with every area of our school on both campuses active!

Evaluations and grades for both the Upper and Lower School will be sent home this week. Please be watching for them! In addition, don't miss the Floresco Planning Meeting, many College Counseling events, and Lower School Tours. You'll also notice a Dad's Club is forming!

There are plenty of ways to be involved in the life of our school, and we hope to continue growing our vibrant community this spring.
