What’s happened this week:

Thank you PAC for organizing the Scholastic Book Fair, and the free books for our students.  It was marvelous to see how excited the students were about reading!!

We welcomed our next year’s kindergarten students for their orientation Thursday morning.  There was a lot of excitement in the building! Thank you to all the staff and peer helpers who made this such a wonderful event!!

Finally, on Friday we celebrated our school spirit with Twin day.  Thanks to our PAC parents we also enjoyed Freezie Day and Hot Lunch Day today as well!

 

What’s happening this week:

On Monday Division 4 will be singing “Oh Canada” at the opening ceremony for the Firefighter’s Conference at the Prestige.  A quick reminder to Division 4 students attending this event – you’ll need to be at school by 8:30 on Monday morning to catch the bus to the Prestige!

Also on Monday, Divisions 10 and 11 head out to China Beach for an educational adventure.

Tuesday our Grade 5s are ramping it up with their Talent Show Dress Rehearsal, just in time for the big show on Wednesday!  Students will also be collecting donations for the Food Bank at the show, so please share a little if you can.

Thursday Lorna Bjorklund will be visiting from Journey to introduce our Grade 5 students to various band instruments.  Forms will be going home with anyone who wants to sign up for band in Grade 6.

Friday we’re sending some of our students off to represent Poirier at the Track and Field Meet at Royal Bay.  Make sure to wish them luck, and let’s all hope for some nice weather!
