Home / School News / Ecole Poirier Elementary News for June 2nd, 2017


What’s happened this week:

Freezie Day, the Grade 5 Talent Show, and Track and Field – our students have kept busy!  Thank you a million times over to the parents and staff and students who make all these great events happen!!


What’s happening next week:

Poirier’s Grade 4 and 5 students are off to Journey for an afternoon of music on Tuesday.  Thursday we’ll have the grand unveiling of our schoolwide Coast Salish Moon Project.  If you can, take a minute to check it out and spot your student’s handiwork on the 13 moons!  Friday is a schoolwide Spirit Day, and the theme is “Twins”.  We look forward to seeing what creative ideas our students come up with!  And once again, our Grade 5s will head to Journey on Friday afternoon, this time to enjoy a hot dog and s’mores roast at the fire pit.


A note from the Principal:

We have noticed several toys and electronics being brought to school and wanted to remind you that we are asking that no toys or electronics be brought to school please.  Your help reminding your children would be much appreciated.  Fidget spinners are one of this year’s popular toys.  Please have your child keep these distracting items at home.  If a child needs a ‘fidget’ for the classroom, the school will provide them with an appropriate item.  We appreciate your support on this.
