Carson Grove ES News - Week of Feb. 19th

It was another great week at Carson Grove with a lot of excitement!  Red, Pink, and White Spirit Day and Candy Grams were highlights of the week.  Families also received an email to access their children’s report cards.  Please contact the school office if you have any issues when trying to open the file.

On Monday, February 12th, we all enjoyed the “Celebrate Africa” performance of drumming, dance, and storytelling by MASC artists MASABO.  This event was funded by the OCDSB and the Harry P. Ward foundation subsidy program. 

Thank you to Kids Up Front Ottawa for supporting the Grade 4 and 5 Floor Hockey Club’s trip to see the Senators play the Ducks on Thursday, February 15th.  They had an amazing time!

Four Day Weekend 

Friday, February 16th was a PA Day and Monday, February 19th is Family Day.  The school will be closed for students.  Classes will start again on Tuesday, February 20th.

Toonie Tuesday is February 27th

A donation of $2 can be the difference between nothing and something.  On Toonie Tuesday, February 27th, we can all come together to support students in need within the OCDSB.  But you don’t have to wait until then.  You can donate right here, right now!  Let your toonie be the stepping stone to student success. 

Language Reporting 

As you may have noticed on the grades 1 to 5 report cards, starting this school year (2023-2024), Language achievement in Ontario will be shown as one overall grade or mark on the report card.  Students also received specific comments that talk about their strengths, suggest next steps for improvement, with specific comments about progress in reading and writing. To find out more about Ontario's new Language Curriculum for Grades 1 to 8, check out the Guide for Parents.

Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, February 28th

Pink Shirt Day encourages everyone to practise kindness and wear pink to symbolize that you do not tolerate bullying.  Please consider wearing pink on Wednesday, February 28th to show support for Pink Shirt Day at Carson Grove.

Joke or Riddle of the Day!

A “Joke or Riddle of the Day'' is featured daily on the morning announcements.  There are two ways to share a possible joke/riddle of the day: Students will be able to pass along jokes/riddles at school in class using a Chromebook; or, they can suggest one with help from home by clicking here and completing a quick Google Form.  Based on the overwhelming response levels in the past, not all jokes/riddles are used during the announcements.  We do our best to find ones that match the time of the year and also try to make selections from a variety of classes.
