What Catholic Education Means to the Graduating Students at St. Joseph Secondary
"After my experience in Catholic education, I think I will take away the overall feeling of the school There is a strong feeling of support from everyone in the school"
"As a Catholic school student, I have become used to the praying in the morning and afternoon. I have developed a personal habit to start my day with a short prayer, even on the weekend. I find it makes my day better."
"What I will take away from my experience in Catholic education is a sense of community. I know what it takes to be an active, positive member of society. I feel I have a better handle on how to approach different situations and how to achieve a positive outcome."
"As I graduate from highs school, I will take the knowledge of living a moral life as a Christian from Catholic education.."
"I have learned a lot about my own religion and about myself as a human being here at St. Joe's. I feel as though Catholic schools contain people that are kinder because we are a community. We work together as a team."
Elementary and Secondary Catholic Community, Culture, and Caring School Climate Survey for Parents and Guardians
The Ministry of Education’s focus on Safe and Accepting Schools: Promoting a Positive School Climate requires that all elementary and secondary schools across Ontario implement a student and parent school climate survey every two years. As a Catholic school board, our fundamental understanding of the inherent human dignity of all people, helps us frame this requirement.
All parents and guardians of elementary and secondary students across Dufferin-Peel are invited to complete an anonymous and voluntary Catholic Community, Culture, and Caring School Climate Survey. This online survey has been developed to provide an opportunity for parents and guardians to express feedback regarding their perceptions of safety, inclusion, and communication with their child's school. Information collected from this survey will help inform schools about what is needed to make school a better place for all students and parents in Dufferin-Peel.

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 Feb. 27th, 2017
At this time we would like to congratulate this week’s Athletes of the Week, Jacob Del Prado and Re’al Zulueta.
Jacob is a member of the Jr. Boys Basketball team. He is a dedicated leader both on and off the court. He demonstrates what it means to be a student-athlete. On the court, Jacob is a dominate force in the big man position and his superior athleticism allows him to control the court.
Re'al (Ree-Al) is also member of the Jr. Boys Basketball team. Re'al leads the team in 3-point shots and his accuracy with his shots has helped lead them into playoffs. Re'al is a very enthusiastic player and the team relays on his positive energy to motivate them to always play their best.
We are very proud of Jacob and Re’al and wish to congratulate them as this week's Athletes of the week.

You may pass by St. Joe's and wonder...
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.
