Poirier PAC Announcements for December 22nd

Happy Holiday’s Poirier Parents!


This fall has been a tremendous one for our PAC, we have had wonderful success in all of our events and fundraisers and would like to thank all parents for their contributions and support!



We are excited to announce that one of the largest and most exciting endeavours we have been working with the school on this year is the early stage planning of a playground replacement!


We are in very early planning stages and are looking for a handful of parents that are interested in sitting on a sub-committee to plan the playground replacement. This sub-committee would:


– meet monthly (and as needed as the project progresses)

– report to the PAC as necessary at the monthly PAC meetings

– be committed to planning and executing extensive fundraising efforts

– be committed to the planning process for a project that could span multiple years


If you are interested in sitting on the sub-committee, please email PAC President, Michelle Carpenter at mijofitness@gmail.com



We had some amazing fall fundraisers and we are so thankful to the team of parents that volunteer their time to produce such wonderful events! Here is a summary of the funds we have raised so far:


Halloween Dance – $733

Spirit Wear – $146.50

Art Cards – $1895.90

Save Around Books – $2412.50

Purdy’s Chocolates – $963.59
