Letter to Parents re: Hold & Secure
April 16, 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians:
This afternoon, we were placed in a Hold and Secure as a result of a Peel Regional Police investigation in the area.
As you may appreciate, we make every effort to ensure that our school is a safe, healthy, caring and inclusive community in which to learn and work. We have excellent relationships with our local emergency services and co-operate fully with them whenever the need arises. Today was one of those times.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Omar Mohamed and Jackie Mariano are 2 athletes on the swim team. These 2 athletes performed very well at ROPSSAA qualifying for OFSAA. This their first year at St. Joes and both of them have worked really hard throughout the season, always available to help out other swimmers, willingness to try any event and even swimming on their own time. At OFSAA, Omar placed 15th in the Senior Boys 200M Freestyle and Jackie tied for 25th place in the Open Girls 50M Freestyle. We look forward to having them on the team next year!
At this time would also like to congratulate this week's Co-Curricular Jaguars of the week, Aaron Alberto, Robert Kerry, Thanoj Thangarajah (Ta-noj Tan-gar-aja), Anthony Machado, and Anthony D'alessio.
These students recently competed in the Dufferin Peel Skills competition winning a Gold medal in Home Building and a Silver medal in Carpentry.
Purple and Proud March 2015
Congratulations to the Athletes Of The Week!

Want to report something in our school that is not right and needs to stop?
It's easy - just click on this link...
And while we're talking about safety...
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 NPU officers are in our schools almost every day of the week.
At St. Joe's this year, our NPU officer is Constable Mark MacIntosh. His partner is Constable Chris Burgess who is responsible for Rick Hansen S.S.
Constable "Mac" (as he is known) loves St. Joe's and we love him!
In addition to partnering with the school and teachers to provide students with education and information on various topics of community safety and law enforcement, "Mac" goes above and beyond in our school community by doing things like coaching our Girls' Flag Football team and advising our Mock Trial Team as they prepare for competition.
He is truly a purple and proud St. Joe's Jaguar!

St. Joseph SS has received two copies of "Support your Child's Learning through Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting". It is an important parent resource as it uses Q & A format and clear visuals that show parents exactly how the provincial report card has changed. The brochure is available for download as a PDF in English and French as well as 20 other languages.
