Posted on 08/25/2022

We are looking forward to welcoming our Grade 9 students to our Grade 9 ‘Drop- In Day’ on THURSDAY, AUGUST 31ST FROM 10:00 AM TO 1:00 PM.

At JOA we offer the Senior Knight Mentor program; a program whose sole purpose is to help grade nines feel more comfortable as well as help them achieve success in their first year of high school. In addition, this program is designed to both welcome and support our new students by assigning them a Knight Mentor during their first year of High School.  The Senior Knight Mentor program is a group of responsible grade 11 or 12 students who have met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader in our school. 

Below is some information to let you know what you and your child can expect in advance of the Grade 9 Drop-In Day. On this day students will be able to meet the Senior Knight Mentors who will be able to:

  • Help answer questions 

  • Receive their final timetable and make timetable changes if necessary. Your child’s Grade 8 teacher has provided your child with their timetable. 

  • Receive their locker and lock. Students are to  use a JOA provided lock.  No personal locks will be permitted.The cost of the locks will be included in the student fee

  • Tour the school and locate their classes

Students will also receive a swag bag of Knight’s goodies. 

Orientation activities will continue during the first week of the new school year.
