Irish Elementary was built in 1968 and was named in honor of Mrs. Jean Powell Irish. Ms. Irish served as teacher and principal for the Poudre School District for over thirty years. She always felt it was important to work to the best of one's ability and always encouraged her students to find satisfaction in doing their best. The motto of our school is: Encendemos la Chispa De la Grandeza—We Spark Greatness. Our mascot is a jaguar and our school colors are blue and white.
