April 16 1/2 day
Tuesday, April 07, 2015
Hello and welcome to our compressed year!
Due to the strike we had to get our report cards out before March break. Teachers wanted to have their parent teacher meetings before the March break so due to this change April 16th is a 1/2 day but teachers are not available for a meeting. Thanks for your understanding.

The next three months are full of numerous events. I will do my very best to keep this calendar updated with school events as well as send home auto dialers to make sure everyone is informed. As the days get longer students still need lots of sleep and healthy foods. I hope everyone is able to keep to a routine bedtime with the lighter evenings.
The Grade two's are swimming for 8 weeks and Dare is happening for a similar length of time for the Grade 5's. PAC is trying to raise funds for our next phase of the nature playground by selling freezies regularly. The students continue to enjoy the first phase of the Nature playground. Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine. Stephanie

The PAC and teachers continue to support the Nature Playground here at Poirier. The PAC will be selling popcorn and freezies over the next couple of months. As well as one of the parents is working really hard to apply for numerous grants. We really appreciate your continued support of the many activities occurring at Poirier.
Fantastic Literacy week!
Monday, February 02, 2015
We had a great literacy week. Students read books, guests came and read stories and the staff did a really fun readers theatre. Basketball has started for grade 5's boys and girls and we have also started floor hockey intra-mural teams. The choir continues to work hard getting ready for the "Sing out" on March 2nd. The chess club is attracting more members and our peer helpers have introduced the game of 4 squares. We would like to give a huge thanks to our parents who have made new schlocky boards. The students love them. Please remember February can be a touch month for students and parents. Make sure everyone gets lots of rest, good vegetables and plenty of exercise!
There have been many questions about kindergarten registration. Please check out the following;

Hope this helps! Thanks
On Monday January 26 Poirier office staff will be registering the new kindies. We hope many parents will choose to register on-line but many prefer to line up. Please understand that the office will be very busy on the 26. Thanks Stephanie
2015 is here!

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
Friday, December 05, 2014
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.
