Principal's Message - Dec. 9, 2022

​​It was great to have families in the building supporting our students both during our dress rehearsals and evening performances for our Winter Concert on December 8th. Thank you to all students, teachers, and families for making this event possible. You all came together to create and join in the celebrations of a wonderful event that brought our school even closer together as a whole community.

  1. Week of Giving (Spirit Days and Food Drive) – Dec. 12 - 16, 2022

This year, we are going to be collecting items for the Food Bank in combination with the week of giving and connected spirit days.  Please ensure that the food donations are non-perishable. Here is a link to the Food Banks wish list:

If we reach our goal of filling a minimum of 6 Food Bank boxes, Limo To Go Inc. has offered to donate 1 limousine ride with Christmas light “twinkle” tour. If we reach our goal, all Marion Carson students will have their names entered into the draw. If we reach the goal and your child is the lucky winner, then the limousine ride will occur on Sunday, December 18, and be about three hours long, taking the family(s) around town to see the Christmas lights of Calgary.

Each day, we have given suggested items to be brought in, but students can bring any item on any day as all items are appreciated.

Spirit Days and Suggested Items:

Monday, Dec. 12: Crazy Hair Day – Food (non-perishable)

Tuesday, Dec. 13: Hat Day – Pet Food / Pet items

Wednesday, Dec. 14: Twin or Backwards Day – Baby items/Party items

Thursday, Dec. 15: Crazy Sweater/Jersey Day – Bathroom / Hygiene products

Friday, Dec. 16: Pajama and Stuffy Day (Movie Day) – Food (non-perishable)

Thank you for your support and participation in this wonderful week of giving!
