·       Arriving late in September? Moving Schools?


Way to go students at Marion Carson School on a successful year of learning. An extra congratulations goes out to our Grade 4 students from the Mandarin Bilingual program and our Grade 6 students in the Community English program who will each be moving on to their new schools for next year. We are so very proud of all the learning progress that all K-6 students accomplished this year. A few final reminders for parents as the year comes to a close…

June 29 (today) was the last day of school for students. School resumes August 31, 2023. You can see our back to school information here. Returning families can expect an introductory email from their new classroom teacher(s) on August 29 2023.

1.     Staffing Updates:

As the year comes to a close, we often say farewell to some of our staff, as they move to new locations, new roles, new employment, or retirement. We would like to wish all the best to Mrs. Ghelfi, Ms. Guo, Ms. Hymers, Mr. Kadri, Ms. Lowe-Synnott, Ms. McGown, Ms. McIlveen, Ms. Owens, Ms. Sbeiti, Mrs. Schofield, and Ms. Summer as they will not be returning to Marion Carson School to start of next school year.

It is also the time of year where we start to welcome some new staff members, or are able to extend current staff into more permanent roles. We are excited to announce that we have the following staff members joining or continuing with us to start next year:

-       Ms. Cole (grade 6), Mr. Ledene (grade 5), and Ms. Spray (k PM) in the Community English Program

-       Ms. H. Li in the Mandarin Bilingual Program (English, grade 2)

-       Ms. Collins as Physical Education and Wellness Learning Leader

At this time, we have the majority of our staffing for next year complete. Please click here to see our currently updated staff roster for the 2023-24 school year (please note that these are subject to change).


2.     Arriving late in September? Moving Schools?

Our first day back at school for the 2023-24 school year is August 31, 2023. If your child is coming late in September due to extenuating circumstances and will not be present on the first day of school, please email the school office at MarionCarson@cbe.ab.ca with your child's full name, the reason for the absence, and the date of return.

Additionally, if your family has moved out of our catchment/area and you are moving schools, please email the school office to share this information, and for information on how to complete a transfer.

I would like to wish each and every family a safe, happy, and healthy summer break. Personally, as my first year as Principal at Marion Carson School, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and care of your child's learning throughout the year. As a school community, it's the students, their families, and Marion Carson staff that together make this place such a welcoming environment that supports all students in being the best that they can be. We look forward to seeing students and families back in the 2023-24 school year.




Mr. D. Turner

Principal, Marion Carson School
