Carleton Staff Christmas Wish

As the Christmas season approaches, teachers often receive gifts from the parents of their students.  This is a very thoughtful gesture and has been appreciated by staff.  This year, the teachers at Carleton are requesting that instead of a gift, a donation be made to Ronald McDonald House.  Ronald McDonald House is a great resource for families with an ill child and has had a positive impact on families within our school community this year. Please click here to link to the on-line donation page.  Please feel free to inform us of your donation through a note or card.  Thank you!

Carleton Sip ‘N Sing 2017 - An Evening of Winter Joy and Caroling

On Tuesday, December 19th, Carleton staff invite students, parents, guardians, family and friends to attend an evening filled with winter joy, seasonal caroling, and decadenthot chocolate! At 5:30 pm, we will gather in the gym where the festivities will begin. Our school choir will lead the night, followed by a variety of seasonal performances and singalongs led by some of our classes. This event promises to be a fun and memorable one to be shared with the whole family. You’ll want to save this date and mark it in your calendar! We hope to see everyone there!

Winter Wonderland

Our traditional Winter Wonderland is quickly approaching!  The date has been set for Friday Dec. 22/17.  In order to make this event a success, we are looking for donations of used books, toys, games or anything else you think kids may want to buy as a gift for a family member. This used toy/misc. table was very popular with the students, and was emptied very quickly!  We are hoping to receive more of these types of items this year!  The kids loved it!

We will also be offering a baked good table.  We are requesting that peanut free baked goods be brought to the school the morning of the event.

More information to follow!  Please drop off your books/toys/misc. items at any time at the front office.  We really appreciate your support!

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.

No Food or Drink on the Schoolyard

We have a policy of no food or drink on the schoolyard at Carleton School. This helps us to keep the yard litter free as well as preventing bees and other insects and animals from being attracted to the playground. This policy applies to students arriving at school in the morning with food and drink. Students are encouraged to finish their food and drinks at the place of purchase. They will be directed off the school grounds to finish these. (Special school events are the exception to this rule.)

Carleton School Advisory Council/Parent Council

The date of our next meeting is Tuesday, December 5th, 6:00 pm.
