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.

Welcome Mr. Howell

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Howell will be joining the Carleton School community as the school's principal while Mr. Schuyler is on sabbatical.

Carleton School has started our annual food and gift drive for Community Cares. The Carleton community has a great history of helping those in need! Food items and gifts for children are gratefully accepted for this important charitable action. All items can be dropped off in the main foyer.

We are also collecting clothing to help in our own community as well as to help others. New and gently used winter clothing can be placed on or under our Giving Tree in the main foyer. Those winter coats, boots and snowpants that your child has outgrown can make a difference for other students at Carleton. Thanks for your continued support!


It’s time for the ‘Festive Basket Raffle’! Every class will have a basket to fill, based on a theme (e.g., toys, candy, crafts etc.). Beginning Monday, December 12th, students may bring in an item to go in the basket, or a monetary donation that will be used to purchase items for the basket. This will continue until Friday, December 16th, when the baskets will be assembled for display in the front foyer for the last week of school. Beginning Monday, December 19th, students can purchase raffle tickets during nutrition break, (25c each or 5 for $1.00), for a chance to win a basket. The baskets will be raffled off on Thursday, December 22nd after lunch. There will be 8 baskets to be raffled, all suitable for gift giving, or to be broken up into smaller gifts or stocking stuffers.

Join in and share in the holiday spirit at Carleton!
