A lot of fun programs and events have been happening at Poirier. First of all, there are boys’ and girls’ basketball programs happening at lunch and recess. The boys do it in the morning, and the girls do it in the afternoon.

On October 31, we had the Halloween party! It was a lot of fun. Everyone wore their Halloween costumes and we played games, and had a lot of fun at the Halloween dance at the end of the day!

On November 29, Poirier is having Hat Day! Hat Day is where everyone at Poirier wears a goofy hat, a funny hat, a creative hat, or just a plain regular hat. It’s a lot of fun seeing all the different hats!

On November 8, we had the Remembrance Day assembly. We had a special presentation from a veteran, and thought of our rights and freedoms, because if the veterans hadn’t fought for our rights and freedoms, the students at Poirier wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t have written this.

At Poirier we have a program called the Peer Helpers program. Peer helpers are kids in fifth grade who wear black jackets with “Peer Helper” on the back in silver and they go around the school helping kids who are hurt or being bullied, or have no one to play with.

There is also a garden club. The garden club is a group of kids who like to garden, or are just interested in gardening, who get together some recesses in the school garden to work on their gardening skills, as well as making the school garden even better.

One of the athletic clubs is cross country. Cross country is a running group that competes in races. Some of the students in cross country have done really well!

There is also an Aboriginal Arts program. It’s where students get together in the Aboriginal Arts room with the Aboriginal Arts teacher and make crafts and learn about the First Nations people.

We also do fundraisers such as selling Smencils (scented pencils) and these really fun hats that look like animals called Knitwits.

Everyone at Poirier has a lot of fun and helps out a bit with fundraisers and I’m very glad I attend this school.

N’oublie  pas c’est la journée de lait tous les mercredis.

C’est 1.00$ pour le chocolat et 75 cents pour le lait blanc.

Le 29 c’est la journée des chapeaux YOUPIE! N’oublie  pas de porter un chapeau intéressant ou un chapeau de baseball. Cela ne fait rien ce que c’est; c’est amusant de participer!

Finalement, les pairs aidants vont être dehors pour aider les enfants avec leurs problèmes. Ils vont porter des manteaux avec “Peer Helpers” inscrits au dos, en argent.
