Irish Elementary is in need of help with soccer games  

Our third fourth and fifth grade students anxiously await their lunch recess to challenge each other at a game of soccer day after day. Some of our kids are in teams outside of school and bring their passion for the game to the Irish field. The natural talent and ability the kids have even at their young age is incredible but even greater is their competitive spirit. 

How can you help? Come referee soccer games during lunch recess. Be part of the inspiration as you encourage safe and healthy competition. 

Please email Sara Sandoval ssandova@psdschools.org for more details or if you are interested in volunteering.
