Summer Programs for current grade 7's and 8's
Registration for all July 2015 summer programs is now OPEN
Attached is an information sheet for all the summer programs being offered through Adult and Community Education Services that can be found on the DSBN website at www.dsbn.org/summer
The following points are very important when completing the forms:
- Use only black or blue pens when completing registration forms – NO pencils or gel pens they are difficult to read when sent by email or fax;
- OEN numbers are mandatory when sending in registration forms;
- The student’s chosen summer school site MUST be selected on the registration form – do not assume a student is attending a summer school site based on where the student attends school.
Welcome to Carleton Public School!
Carleton is IN (again!) for the 10th Rankin Cancer Run!!!
We WILL Make A Difference Together
By now, a bright orange paper should have made its way home. These were distributed at the Rankin Cancer Run kick-off assembly last week- the bright orange registration sheet is your family's way to become a member of the Carleton Cobras team for the Rankin Run. Simply list all the people you are bringing with you, each of their shirt sizes (cancer survivors wear orange shirts!) and attach the registration fee ( $10 students/ $20 adults).
What: a 1km or 5km walk/jog/run along the canal
Where: Grantham Optimist Club (Parnell and Niagara)
When: Sat., May 23 9:00am to noonish
Why: to raise $$$ for cancer care and research IN NIAGARA
Who: you and me and whoever we bring with us
How: return orange sheet with names, tshirt sizes, registration fees to Mrs. Read BY APRiL 23rd... she'll do the rest
OUR GOALS------> to raise $5000.00 and have >200 team Carleton members

GET INVOLVED and join us as we celebrate our very own Lyric Jarvis as the key speaker at the run!
It takes just five minutes to register for our on-line payment service. You can access the service by visiting our school website and clicking on “School Cash Online”. You will need your child’s OEN number to register. It can be found on their most recent report card. You can use School Cash Online with confidence; it is a safe and secure portal. Using School Cash Online, you may never have to search for spare change again! That is, unless you’re looking for coffee money. Even if you choose not to pay using the on-line service, by registering you will receive e-mail reminders of events, such as special lunches and class trips. Thanks for your support!
As part of our switch to paperless practices, such as the on-line payment program, we will no longer be printing forms for the whole student body. We will post copies of the forms on this website that you can print from home if you are not paying on-line (click the "Looking for a Form?" button below the "Important Dates" section to the right).
Achieving Success Together!
We are pleased to provide an outstanding education at Carleton Public School for our students. Innovative programs that meet the needs of all our students are taught by our dedicated and professional staff who care about your child. Our school provides extra-curricular opportunities that encourage the development of excellence, integrity and respect.
Our Board is focused on literacy and numeracy achievement and creating an environment where we are working together on our goal of success for every student. We also value the community partnerships and parent involvement which are so crucial to a successful education for our students.
Our school bell rings at 8:40 a.m. Students should arrive and go to the playground between 8:25 and prior to 8:40. Please note that students must leave school property immediately after school unless staying for a school-sponsored event, e.g. homework club, or participating in a sporting event. Students watching after school sporting events must be supervised by an adult. If parents are picking up their children and remaining on school property (beyond the school day), they are reminded that they must supervise their children at all times.
We have limited parking space, so if you are dropping off or picking up children, we recommend you park on the distant side streets or park in the FRONT parking lot only. With over 40 Kindergarten students requiring face-to-face drop off it gets very chaotic! If the parking lot is extremely busy and all of the front spots are taken, please use any open parking spots at the side of the school. Thank You!
