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.
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!
The Rankin Run
The 11th Annual Rankin Run is on Saturday, May 28th, 2016 at the Grantham Lions Park in St. Catharines. Carleton School will be participating in the Run for the third year! Last year we won the award for the most participants for a school and for the most money raised by a school! Let’s see if we can repeat this success.
If you wish to participate in the Rankin Run, please complete and return the orange form sent home previously. This commitment sheet is due back to Mrs. Read by Thursday, April 28th. Don't forget to include your shirt order!
Each participant listed will be given a pledge sheet once the commitment sheet and registration fee have been submitted. Please consider collecting sponsors for the event. All pledge forms and money are due to Mrs. Read no later than Thursday, May 19th, 2016.
Our Council will run the spring Bag to School fundraiser from April 11th – May 11th. Any clothes that you, your friends, families or neighbours no longer need can be donated to the school. These clothes will converted into funds to help further support the Carleton School library renovation and updating of our book collection. Collection bags will be sent home with the students. Happy spring cleaning!
Our Council will also be running the annual Vesey’s Seeds and Bulbs fundraiser throughout the month of April. Ordering information will be sent home with the students. We cannot guarantee the delivery date of the seeds and bulbs; the products ordered will not be sent until there is no chance of frost.
