Poirier students to explore aquarium at night

Local student reporters write about what is happening at their schools

We are students at Ecole Poirier and we think it is a great school. There is always something exciting to do like fun assemblies, jump rope for heart, and music Monday. Poirier is one of the few schools with our own song and motto which is JOIN IN!

This year all the Grade 4 and 5 students get to go to Vancouver. We are spending the night in the aquarium! All the boys get to sleep with the dolphins and the girls get to sleep with the belugas.

The Grade 4 and 5 students are also starting literature circles.

In our class we are making Pysanky eggs. Pysanky eggs are a Ukrainian tradition. We are also building cars for science. We do lots of cool art work and get to play the ukuleles and the primary students get to play the recorders. All the Grade 2’s at Poirier are doing swimming lessons every Tuesday and Thursday.

We think Poirier is a great elementary school and we hope you will be able to experience it.

JOIN IN!
