March 08, 2019

Dear Panther Families,

Thank you to those parents/guardians that were able to attend Parent/Teacher Conferences last night, we appreciate you taking the time to meet, and we hope that your conference was able to provide you with some valuable insight into your child’s progress in school. A continued partnership throughout the remainder of the school year is a great way to help your child succeed in the classroom.


March Food Drive – please help us fill the Sooke Food Bank’s shelves, Poirier will be collecting non-perishable items for the Food Bank until Friday, March 15th.


REMINDER!  Sooke Sing-Out 2019

The Ecole Poirier Choir will be performing at the annual Sooke Sing Out on Monday, March 11th at Edward Milne Community School in the gymnasium.           

Students should arrive at EMCS at 6:30pm.  There will be a sign in the foyer directing you to our warm-up room, where you will sign your child in with Mme Arts and Mrs. Murphy.  Coats may also be left in this room.  The concert will run from 7-8pm.  Please pick up your child from the warm-up room at the end of the concert, and be sure to sign out.  There are no tickets or admission costs.

Students are asked to please wear all black for this performance.  Our yellow choir scarves will be available in the warm-up room.

Thanks for supporting your child in their efforts with choir this season!  We also send out a big thank you to Patricia Haisell, our talented accompanist who very generously gives her time to play for the choir.  If you have any questions about choir, please contact Mme Arts at the school at 250-642-0500.
