PREPARING FOR SEPTEMBER - SCHOOL MATERIALS
When preparing for school, please use the list of items below to help you in deciding what items to purchase for your child(ren). These items are considered basic, personal items and are asked to be supplied from home.
- pencil crayons
- high lighters
- glue sticks
Sending a box of Kleenex with your child is also much appreciated, especially during allergy and cold seasons. While the school will keep a small supply of these items to supplement classroom instruction, it is not expected that the school will provide these for each student. We appreciate your support with this.
In addition to the above list, we do ask that each student have a pair of shoes at school for indoor use. This helps keep our classrooms and carpets clean and the floors from becoming slippery in wet or snowy weather. Ideally, indoor shoes are suitable for the gym (running shoes with a non-marking sole). Please remember that sandals and “Crocs” do not offer the support needed for phys.ed. activities and will not be allowed for use in phys. ed. classes.

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!
