Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board announces its
Top Ontario Scholars for 2014-15
3,368 Grade 12 Dufferin-Peel students score 80 per cent or higher
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is pleased to announce its Top Ontario Scholars for the 2014-15 school year.
Brian Tran from Cardinal Ambrozic Catholic Secondary School is the board’s top scholar in Brampton with an average of 99.33 per cent. Brian will be studying Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo in the fall.
Julia Perlotto from St. Joseph Secondary School is Mississauga’s top scholar with an average of 99.30 per cent. Julia is enrolled in the Commerce program at Queen’s University School of Business.
Nicholas Chrobok from St. Michael Catholic Secondary School is the board’s top scholar in the Bolton/Caledon area with an average of 98.50 per cent. Nicholas is enrolled in the Biomedical Science program at York University.
Students must achieve an average of 80% or higher on their top six Grade 12 courses to be an Ontario Top Scholar. This year, 3,368 Dufferin-Peel students earned this distinction.
“One of the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations is to be a self-directed, responsible, lifelong learner who develops and demonstrates their God-given potential,” said John B. Kostoff, director of education. “Marks like these represent students who are tapping into that potential, demonstrating exceptional study habits and dedication. Such qualities will serve them well as they continue their academic journey at their chosen post-secondary institutions and beyond.”
We are SO proud of you!!
The office will open to the public on:
August 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th from 9am to 1pm.
Get Ready Program

Uniform Policy Change
Starting in the new school year, September 2015, shoes of any colour will be acceptable under the new uniform policy. The shoes must be closed toe and heel. No sandals or flip flops are permitted.
Get Ready Program for New Grade 9 Students
The Get Ready program provides direct support for secondary level Literacy, Numeracy and Learning Strategies. The main objective is to allow our new Grade 9s to get a head start on their secondary experience and make a connection to at least one caring adult in the school. Interested students have registered with their Grade 8 teacher. If students are still interested, but have not registered, they can pick up a registration form from the St. Joseph Guidance Department.

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!
