Friday, Feb, 3rd.
Dear Poirier Families,
Welcome to February, Poirier Families. We are entering the Salish Moon of the Frog, but we are thinking it may be too chilly for those critters just yet. Our students are out in all weather though, enjoying soccer on our field, imaginative play in our forest, Gaga Ball, Tetherball, and Basketball on the blacktop, drawing with chalk out front, and using our playground equipment with great enthusiasm. February is a month that recognizes the love of family and community as well as the power of kindness so it is definitely a month we look forward to and savour. Division 11 with Mme Augello will be hosting a sale of cards and ‘love’ wands to accompany their market and economy learning on Thursday at lunch. The cards will be $1.00 and wands will be $3.00. It will be a fun sale and learning time.

Dear Poirier Families,
This week was a celebration of Literacy that concluded with a school wide assembly, challenge prizes, staff reader’s theatre, and a band performance. The Rockridge High School Band showed off their musical literacy skills in a performance for our Black Bears who were in awe of these talented musicians. Thank you to everyone who was able to support our Read-a-Thon. We had reading trains, stories around a campfire, bookmark making, story creating, playing with words and letters, and many other literacy activities. Our community raised $2 250.00 for library books. Thank you. From our recent Scholastic book fair, we were also able to award $50 in Scholastic credit to eight winning classes and one student from each class was chosen to win $10, $25, $50, or $100 in books from Scholastic. Wow!
Next week our Grade 2 swim lessons provided by Sooke Lions continue.

Have an enjoyable weekend. Maybe it’s time to do a Sooke Potholes Hike. You can park in the top parking lot and walk paths to the river or join onto the Galloping Goose. Enjoy your time together.
