Principal's Message

Welcome and Bienvenue, students and families, to St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School with French Immersion. As we begin our year together, we extend our gratitude to everyone who makes up the St. Joseph's school community for their support and dedication. It is a privilege to serve this community, and as your administrative team, we look forward to partnering with staff, parents, Father Dwayne, and the parish team to provide an exceptional Catholic learning experience. Our aim is to create an environment that is faith-centered, safe, academically enriching, and attentive to the needs of all students.

Through the combined efforts of home, church, and school, we have achieved significant progress in our faith, education, and student well-being. Your cooperation, input, and support are highly valued and appreciated as we build on the past successes and traditions of St. Joseph Catholic School.

St. Joseph also offers students the unique cultural experience of learning both English and French. This incredible opportunity enhances student achievement and opens many exciting doors for future success.

As our community continues to grow stronger, we encourage you to be active in your child's school life. Our dedicated and generous Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC) parents work tirelessly to support and advocate for our students and their families. By working together, we can ensure a positive learning experience for your child.

As your administrative team, we are energized and eager to begin this year's journey with you and your children.
Yours in Catholic Education,                                



Mission Statement

At St. Joseph's, we align with the WECDSB and the Ontario government in our commitment to enhancing publicly funded education and achieving positive outcomes for all students.

We, the St. Joseph School Community, will strive as a partnership of school, home, and parish, to provide our students with a quality Catholic Education rooted in Gospel teachings, enabling all to grow to their fullest potential.

Land Acknowledgment

While it is a well-travelled land, we [I] would like to respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we gather today is the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprised of the Ojibwe (oh-jib-way), the Odawa (oh-dow-wah), and the Potawatomi (pah-tah-wah-toe-mee) Peoples. We are grateful to work, learn and live in this area.
