Welcome to Irwin County Elementary School!
In consultation with our local pediatrician, Dr. Conner, Irwin County Schools have decided to require all students and staff to wear some type of facial covering. For students who have medical issues and if parents feel their child needs something different other than a mask, please contact your child’s principal. Thank you and stay safe!

ICES wants to thank all parents in advance for helping us with morning drop off. We appreciate our parents!!!
Grab your binoculars, ready your cameras, and hop in the car! In collaboration with Irwin County Elementary School, Irwin County Library will be hosting a Wildlife Safari Tour in honor of their upcoming “Tails & Tales” Summer Reading Program on May 8th, 2021 from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. Signs at the school will direct you to the entrance for this drive-thru style tour. Meet the zookeepers, receive goodies from the animals, and snag a bagged lunch on your way out. This event is free and open to all ages!
For the safety of the staff, participants, and the wild animals handing out incentives, all participants are asked to stay in their vehicles at all times. So mark your calendars, load up the family, and ride on down to Irwin County Elementary School!

Pre-K students are studying buildings as part of their curriculum, so today their classes took a tour of the fifth-grade projects in the media center.
The fifth-grade math classes completed a project to learn about volume. Each student built a city, then used the length, width, and height to figure out the volume of all of the buildings in the city. This sort of project shows students the real-world applications of the concepts they learn in class, and the results are very creative! The finished results are on display in the media center.
