Welcome to the DeWitt Carter Public School Website. We hope this website will further strengthen the connection between school, home, and our community. DeWitt Carter Public School is located on Fares Street in Port Colborne. We are the only public school located on the East Side of the Welland Canal. DeWitt Carter is currently home to over 260 students from junior Kindergarten to Grade eight. For a more in depth history of DeWitt Carter Public School, please have a look at our School History Page.

Single Use Plastics Student Writing (see links below)

In the past several months, intermediate students have learned about cells as the building blocks of life and they understand how their organ systems work. Earlier in the year, they learned about the impact of the different types of contamination in our water systems. Recently, they read an article originally published in The Toronto Star newspaper about the impact of nanoplastics in bottled water. Following that, they connected all these ideas and their understanding of how to write an effective editorial to communicate their opinions about whether single-use plastics are safe for elementary students. In these two editorials, Makenna Rogers (grade 7) and Taylor Lee (grade 8) want to convince you that single use plastic bottles are not safe.

Important information

The Niagara Region is growing more diverse in creed and religious beliefs and practices. The District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) is committed to fostering diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments that promote acceptance and protect individuals from discrimination and harassment based on the protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code. Creed and/or religion is one of the grounds that is both an individual right and a collective responsibility. The DSBN recognizes and embraces the creed diversity represented in its students, staff, and community members.

As we start our school year, I invite you to share with me your family’s most significant creed-based holiday(s). We will work together through the accommodation request process as Dewit Carter Public School recognizes the importance of families celebrating their creed and/or religious beliefs and practices.

The DSBN has created a Family Guide: Recognizing and Respecting Creed Diversity to support families in requesting accommodations. This guide has also been translated into the following languages; Arabic, French, Hungarian, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Urdu and Vietnamese, which can be viewed on the DSBN Equity webpage. For a list of Days of Significance, please refer to the Days of Significance Calendar.
