The PTA provides scholarships for all fee-based extracurricular activities offered at Irvington. All students who qualify for free/reduced lunch also qualify for PTA scholarships.  Due to PTA budget changes, each qualified student is eligible for a scholarship for ONE after school activity per term (one ‘class’ each: Fall, Winter and Spring terms) for a total of 3 activities per year for each qualified student.  Scholarship forms are available here and in front of the office.  An easy way to submit this scholarship form is to take a picture of it and send it to  Also, if you have scholarship questions, please also send them to as well.

Note: Some classes may have a minimum number of students requirement.

If you have ideas for activities you would like to see offered, contact Briggy Thomas (, the parent volunteer coordinator of after-school activities. Several of our programs depend on volunteers. Visit the Volunteer page for more information on volunteer opportunities.

Maurice Lucas Sports Academy

Irvington is excited to host the Maurice Lucas Sports Academy, a free after school program for middle schoolers that meets twice per week and uses basketball to teach character development and organizational skills. At the end of the program the students will take a field trip to Oregon State. And, as a bonus, the Program Director is former Irvington PE teacher Karen Barker.

Safety Patrol

Irvington has a student safety patrol which is stationed at the Brazee/14th and Thompson/14th intersections before and after school. Fifth graders may volunteer for safety patrol and are trained by visiting Portland police officers. Safety patrol is a year-long commitment capped by a trip to Oaks Park at the end of the school year. Contact: Roseann Bennett at
