Carson Grove ES News Update - Week of April 8th

We had another great week at Carson Grove.  The unexpected cold, snowy weather caused some excitement.  Thank you for sending your child prepared for the weather.  As always, we are happy to help if your child ever needs outerwear.

April 8th Solar Eclipse - No School

On Monday April 8th, there will be a total solar eclipse.  Ottawa will experience a partial solar eclipse.  During a total or partial solar eclipse it is not safe to look directly at the sun without appropriate protective eye wear. Doing so may result in permanent eye damage.

The eclipse occurring on April 8th will last for 2 hours 23 minutes, beginning at 2:11pm and ending at 4:35pm with the maximum point of the eclipse at 3:25pm.  Because almost all school and program dismissal times occur during that window, all OCDSB schools will be closed on Monday, April 8th.

Close of Ramadan and Celebration of Eid

Eid Mubarak!  On behalf of all Carson Grove staff members, we extend our warmest wishes to all who are celebrating the close of Ramadan.  May you enjoy a wonderful Eid al-Fitr and may you continue to have a bright, peaceful, and prosperous year!

Please let the office know if your child will be away from school.  We sent a form home to all families to return to school.  Without the forms, the office will need to call home.  Thank you for your help! 

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 clickinghere 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.
