St. Joseph’s Get Ready Program for our incoming Grade 9 students
“Get Ready!” is designed to provide a successful transition into their secondary program by providing them with an opportunity to review key concepts in literacy and numeracy, as well as introduce effective learning strategies and organizational skills. The program also consists of orientation to the secondary school including an overview of secondary programs, schedules, school layout and practices. This initiative will also allow our incoming Grade 9’s to establish connections with their new peer group and members of the secondary faculty. The ‘Get Ready’ Program is an excellent introduction to the secondary school experience and will help to ensure a smooth transition for your child.
Dates: Mon. August 28 – Thurs. August 31
Time: 8:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.

Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) -
Free Tuition for Eligible Students
NEW OSAP REMOVING FINANCIAL BARRIERS TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY
Changes to OSAP
If your child is currently in Grade 12, you should know that applications are now open for college and university programs. The last date for university applications is January 11th. College applications for the fall term should be submitted before February 1st.
Your child may benefit from financial assistance for postsecondary education from the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). As part of the most significant reform of student assistance in North America, the government of Ontario is removing the financial barriers to attending college or university.
If your family income is under $50,000, your child’s tuition is covered. Even if you earn more, the new OSAP is still there to help with generous grants that will make sending your child to college or university more affordable.
The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development has launched a new online calculator to help students and their families find out quickly and easily whether they qualify for free tuition or other grants and supports from the province. We encourage you to find out more at ontario.ca/osap.

Athlete of the Week
Monday April 24th, 2017
At this time we would like to congratulate this week’s Athletes of the Week, Ke-Shante Clarke-Hong, Meagan Aranha, and Jessica Ardell.
Ke-Shante and Meagan are members of the track and field team who competed in 3 indoor track and field meets this past winter at York University. Ke-Shante competed in sprint hurdles, as well as in long jump and triple jump. Meagan competed in 300 metres. Both girls excelled in their events. Ke-Shante placed first in hurdles at two of the meets, and first in long jump at two of the meets, and 3rd in triple jump, while Meagan placed first in one of her 300 metre races, and second in the other. Both girls are hard working and respectful athletes who are a pleasure to work with and an asset to the St. Joseph community. We look forward to great things in the outdoor track and field season.
In the Varsity Girls' Season Opener, Jessica Ardell provided the offensive spark that was needed by scoring 2 goals to defeat the John Cabot Colts 4 - 1.
Jessica's leadership and positive attitude is infectious amongst her team mates as she continues to lead others within the St. Joseph sports community.
We are very proud of all of these athletes and wish to congratulate them as this week's athletes of the week.
Our Safe, Caring and Inclusive Environment
Why is there a police car parked in front of the school??
All schools in Dufferin-Peel participate in the Neighbourhood Policing Unit (NPU) Program. Each school year, police officers are assigned to work with a specific secondary school and these School Resource Officers (SROs) are in our schools almost every day of the week. Their mandate is one of engagement, relationship-building and education.
At St. Joe's this year, our SRO is Constable Jayne Glover. Her partner is Constable Matt Peers.
