3. Joyeux Noel Craft Fair

The second annual Poirier Christmas Craft fair is quickly approaching! We hope you’ll join us for some wonderful food, entertainment, and a wide variety of vendors. The Poirier choir will be performing, there will be kids cooking lessons with Indecent Risotto and photo’s with Santa!


4. Calling all Volunteers!

The PAC has numerous different fundraisers planned for the year but are desperately needing some parents to volunteer to help organize them.  We have a number of parents that do so much volunteering at the school who’s children will be graduating this year but they are offering to help work with new parents so that the fundraisers run efficiently.

Some of these fundraisers only require a few hours of your time others may require about 10 hours spread out.

Please if you think you might be able to help out with the organizing of any of these fundraisers or would like more information about the work involved in running please contact Cori Steele at coristeele@shaw.ca.



We’re looking forward to an exciting holiday season of PAC activities. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions! You can reach Michelle, PAC president at info@mijosport.com
