Home / School News / Ecole Poirier Newsletter for November 22, 2018


November 22, 2018


It was great to see all of the families who attended parent teacher conferences today, building a relationship between home and school is a great step toward helping your child succeed in the classroom. We thank you, for all you do each day to support teaching and learning here at Ecole Poirier.


We have started our food drive for the end of the year.  If you are looking to participate in themed items, next week, is Mexican Food.  Olé!


Christmas Concerts

Christmas concerts will take place on both days in the afternoons (1:15-2:00) and evenings (6:30-7:15) of December 12th and 13th.  This year the staff has decided to mix the French and English divisions to even out the number of divisions in each concert.  The afternoon and evening concerts will be the same to help families find a time that suits their busy schedules. We do not have a venue big enough to accommodate all of our families, at once. If you have children on different nights, we thank you ahead of time for your understanding.
