Welcome to Carleton Public School!
The Library at Carleton is quickly becoming the hippest place to be found. In addition to our regular library classes, and the work periods in the library at second break, we are starting a READING CLUB. If your son/daughter has joined Carleton's Forest Of Reading Club, they will be bringing home a letter shortly. Watch for this letter as it will explain the club and how it works. Mrs. Read is super excited to see so many of our students already signed up and asking everyday, "Can we read today?". The club will run through to the spring and features Canadian authors of great fiction and nonfiction books. It promises to be something no less than awesome.
The Forest of Reading® is Canada's largest recreational reading program! This initiative of the Ontario Library Association (OLA) offers eight reading programs to encourage a love of reading in people of all ages. The Forest® helps celebrate Canadian books, publishers, authors and illustrators. More than 250,000 readers participate annually from their School and/or Public Library. All Ontarians/Canadians are invited to participate via their local public library, school library, or individually.
Our Winter Production - Elfis and the Elves Get All Shook Up!
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!
