Save Carleton Elementary Campaign

Last year, we worked together to save 3 great schools – Graham Bruce Elementary, Gladstone Secondary and Carleton Elementary. All 3 schools were removed from the closure list. However, Carleton Elementary was damaged in a fire in August 2016. As a result, Carleton students have spent the year split up at other schools.

The building is insured by the provincial government but they have not acted to rebuild or replace the school. We are not giving up. Carleton parents and I are ramping up efforts to rebuild or replace Carleton and to bring Carleton students back home!
