Welcome to Poet-Christian K-8 School!

    Poet-Christian is a wonderful school community.  We have terrific students, supportive families, and a dedicated staff.  This is my 20th year at Poet and I have enjoyed working with a huge number of families and students over the years.  Our PTSA and staff works hard to provide our students with a variety of activities, events, and programs.  It is always great to see students and families participating in school functions.  These activities help us build strong bonds and enable us to maintain a positive and supportive learning environment.

Dads & Donuts!

The PTSA is hosting a Dads & Donuts morning of treats and snacks this Friday, Nov. 8th.  Dads and Donuts is one of our favorite events, but it is not exclusive to fathers; we are also inviting grandfathers, uncles, guardians, and other gentlemen who have a big impact on our students.  This is a wonderful event designed to give our fathers and others a chance to enjoy a tasty treat in the morning with students.
    Of course this couldn’t happen without the help of our moms!  If you’d like to help at the event, call us at 830-3325.  The event is being held this Friday, Nov. 8th from 7:30-8:15 a.m.  We hope to see you there! 

Poet Hockey Night at Stockton Arena

Hockey Night is back!  The Stockton Heat are offering special seats and prices (40% off) for Poet families to attend the game on Friday, Nov. 15th against the Tucson Roadrunners.   Poet will receive up to $7 back on every ticket purchased by Poet families.  We have a special section reserved for Poet families so we can all sit in the same area and enjoy the game.  Last year we had over 100 Poet folks at the game and we had a great time!  With enough people in attendance, 8 lucky students will get a chance to sit on the Heat bench during warm-ups.  It’s also a Harry Potter Theme Night.  Dress up in Harry Potter style and join us at the game!  Get your tickets at www.groupmatics.events/poet.
