Home / School News / Ecole Poirier Elementary Newsletter for February 14th


February 14, 2019

Dear Panther Families,

Well, a ‘one day’ week, leads into a long weekend and we return Tuesday for JERSEY DAY!!  The Grizzlies are coming and everyone is welcome to adorn their favorite sports jersey and welcome them to Ecole Poirier!

Thank you to students who helped make the Valentine Candy-Gram Fundraiser a success in spite of the snow.  The monies raised will be used to fund Peer Helper initiatives around the school.

Keeping in the hockey theme – Let’s build some extreme Poirier spirit at District Day with the Royals on Friday, March 1st!   Tickets will be $15 each and not only is it a fundraiser for our school, but if we sell the most tickets our whole school wins a PIZZA LUNCH!!  Stay tuned for details…
