Welcome to Carleton Public School!

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. At Carleton School, and throughout the DSBN, we all matter!

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. an after school 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.

Carleton School's Night at the IceDogs

We look forward to Carleton School Night at the December 8th IceDogs game. The pregame skate starts at 5:00 p.m. All families attending are encouraged to bring new or gently used stuffed animals to the game and to throw them onto the ice when the IceDogs score their first goal of the game. All stuffed animals collected will be donated to Victim Services Niagara. It's another great way to show Carleton cares! Tickets for the game are available through School Cash On-Line. There is a pregame skate for those attending from 5:00 - 5:30.

Winter Wonderland, Wednesday December 7th

On Wednesday December 7th, Carleton School will enjoy a day full of festive activities in they gym. Students will have the opportunity to purchase used books, games, toys, as well as fresh baked treats. Activities such as craft table, face painting, picture with Santa and guessing games will also be available.

We are asking students to bring in used books (children/adult), and any small toys/games that they no longer play with. These can be brought to the school prior to December 6th. Donations for the craft table will also be gratefully accepted, such as foam letters/shapes, colouring pages, etc. We will be asking for donations of baked goods to be delivered to the school on the morning ot the event. Please keep in mind that we are a peanut free and tree nut free school, and all treats must be nut free. Thank you in advance for your contributions and support of this event!

Each activity will cost between 25 cents and $1.00. Punch Cards are available for $2.00 each. Students will be able to use their cards to participate in the various activities.  Cards must be purchased in advance, and will be available through school cash on-line. Students will be able to purchase a maximum of two cards.

Please contact your child's teacher if you are not able to purchase tickets through school cash on-line. 


Winter Songfest, Wednesday December 14th

The staff of Carleton school are looking forward to joining the students and parents/guardians/grandparents for an evening of seasonal songs and hot chocolate on Wednesday December 14. We plan to gather in the playground behind the school at 6:00 p.m. Please ensure that you dress warmly as this is an outdoor event! (In the event of rain, we will be in the gym.) Students will lead us in a variety of seasonal songs. Please put this date on your calendar! We hope to see everyone there!
