Welcome back to school on Monday January 5th. Just a quick reminder, there will be a PAC meeting on the 19th. This is a great chance to get involved with our school. The PAC has generously bought a class set of IPADS! We are excited for our students to use these great tools in a class. January is gymnastics and the gym will be set up with equipment. Please remind your child to be respectful of the gym equipment.
We are looking forward to a great NEW year with the panthers.
Winter Holiday is here

It is the end of 2014 and what an interesting year. The choir is practicing and classes are practicing for the upcoming concerts. We hope everyone will be able to attend one of the 5 holiday concerts we are putting on at Poirier. Also December is the food bank month and we hope that families will be able to donate non- perishable items to the food bank. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
This is the last week for change for Diabetes. The class that raises the most change wins a free pizza lunch. The competition was close last year and it looks like this year it will be similar. We will also be handing out prizes for Read with me to the grades 3-5 this week. This time of year is a time for celebration of learning. A huge thanks to all the families that joined us for the show what you know. Great to see everyone.
We are having a holiday concert this year. The English concerts will be December 17 at 1:30 an 6:30 and the French concerts will be the next day at the same time. We had a lovely Remembrance day ceremony and thank Ms. Ridewood's class and all the many classes that sang for us.
Please contact your teacher to set up a meeting if you are wondering how your child is doing at school. We are working hard to make sure that students take responsibility for their own learning. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Monday is our Remembrance day assembly at 11 am in the gym. Please join us if you are able.
Tuesday is Remembrance day. Please help your family understand the importance of honouring the people who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
Wednesday and Thursday are regular school days.
Friday the Kindergarten and 1-3's (300 students) will be bussed to John Stubbs for Charlotte Diamond. This is thanks to the Canadian Parents for French.
Also we are looking for volunteers for knitting and the "kiss and go"
We will have a WITS assembly for our new kindies this Wednesday. Please ask your child about WITS and what it means. Also Friday is our Halloween assembly. Please send a small LED light for safety at school. Just a reminder; no masks, blood or weapons. We want our students to have a safe Halloween. Please do not send Halloween candy to school, we find that most students do not respond well to sugar and school. Thanks Stephanie
We have a new executive for PAC. I hope everyone can come to the meeting and meet the executive and discuss activities for Poirier. Just a reminder we need you to fill out a number of forms if you are driving Poirier students. Please check quick links. This Friday October 24 is a PRO d and there is not school. Thanks
We have a busy October. Tuesday the 14th there will be a performance about Emily Carr for the the whole school in the gym. Don't forget picture day on the 21, the dance on the 23rd and a PRO d on the 24. The following week will be Halloween.
I would like to say thanks to all the parents who are picking up their children at 3:00 pm. It has made a huge improvement with the busses and cars. I have had very positive feedback from parents who can now find parking and feel safer. Thanks everyone.
Pokemon cards are very popular and very expensive. We are unable to stop children from trading or giving cards away. Students have had cards go missing and are not always sure who they were playing with at the time. We strongly encourage your children to keep their cards at home.
With that being said, on these rainy days, we would appreciate if your child could bring a game to share at recess as we do have indoor recesses when it is extreme
