Thank you! – From Les Survoltés, Photo Club

I would like to thank all of our partners in the region for supporting us, year after year.

Extracurricular activities are important for our students. They challenge their limitations, strengthen their perseverance, and most of all, give them the opportunity to live amazing moments as they practice their art and meet people who are passionate about what they do.

On behalf of all the members of Les Survoltés, the Joliette High School Photography Club, thank you!

Follow us on Facebook to admire the works of our photographers and see their creative evolution.

J’aimerais remercier tous nos partenaires de la région qui, année après année, nous témoigne leur soutien.  Les activités parascolaires sont importantes pour nos jeunes.

Elles contribuent au dépassement de soi, renforcent la persévérance et surtout leur donnent l’opportunité de vivre des expériences terrains incroyables, en plus de rencontrer des gens passionnés par leur profession.

Au nom des membres du Club de Photographie de Joliette High School, Les Survoltés.  Merci.

Suivez-nous sur notre page Facebook pour admirer l’évolution créative de nos photographes.

First Books Canada

To the great team at First Book Canada;

On behalf of Joliette High School, I would like to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Some of the books have joined our library home such as the Star Wars collection and Rick Riordan’s Greek Heroes of the Percy Jackson series. A lot of the younger books went to 2 elementary schools, Joliette Elementary and Rawdon Elementary, as well as Rawdon Day Care.

We also provide some families in our community with Christmas baskets and these books will make perfect gifts for the less fortunate.

Again, our utmost gratitude to your wonderful team and we look forward to perhaps more opportunities to help give children the chance to explore the world of books.

Le Réseau – Drug Awareness Workshop

Parent Conference

Prevention, rather than reaction!

 

Each year, the prevention team of « Le Réseau » offers parents of children aged 10 to 17 years old, Drug Awareness Workshops.  The goal of these workshops is to provide parents with accurate and pertinent information, to help them develop techniques that will improve communication with their children.  

Parents are invited to come join us and learn more about teens and drug/alcohol consumption.

During the course of these workshops, we will try to meet your needs and provide as many answers as possible to your specific questions as parents. In order to do this, we will present the basic concepts relating to drug/alcohol abuse, using concrete situations that you could find yourself in.  We will also discuss teens and communication between parents and children.

Parents will also have the opportunity to think about and discuss their values, behaviours, and attitudes through role playing exercises.  There will also be a question period.  Parents will be able to ask their questions and speak out about their fears regarding certain situations their children might find themselves in.

Let’s not forget that a parent is a child’s number one resource.  Le Réseau is a warehouse of information and can offer tools designed to help parents.  It is important to remember that this is an informative workshop and your participation is important, even if your child is not abusing drugs or alcohol.

Where: Rawdon Elementary School, 4121 Queen Street, Rawdon, Quebec, J0K 1S0

When:  October 19th, 2016

Time:    7 – 9 p.m.

Please call us at 450-834-2427 to register.

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITY FOR GRADUATING CLASS OF 2017

September 30th, 2016

Dear Parents and Students of JHS,

Next week the JHS Graduating Class of 2017 will launch its first big fundraising campaign. We will be selling items from 3 different catalogues (Gourmet, Chocolate, & Christmas) through the Dieleman fundraising company. Your child will be given hard copies of the catalogues, but you can also visit the website at www.shopdfscanada.com to see them online and follow the instructions provided on the letter that was included with the hard copies of the catalogues.

All of the profits raised will go directly to this year’s graduating class in order to help pay for their prom. If students from other grades would like to participate in the fundraiser in order to help the Sec. 5s, they are more than welcome to do so. Please keep in mind that the profits will go towards this year’s prom.

All order forms and payments must be returned to Mrs. Lowry at the school by Monday, October 24th, 2016. If you pay by cheque, please make it payable to Joliette High School. Items will be delivered during the last week of November.

As always, thank you for your participation and support. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Lowry or Mme Rainville at the school.

Sincerely,

The 2017 Graduation Committee

FUNDRAISING & GUIDELINES FOR PROM @ JHS

                                                   FUNDRAISING & GUIDELINES FOR PROM @ JHS

                                                               Tuesday, June 27th, 2017, 5:00 pm

                                                               Club de Golf Montcalm, St. Liguori

Throughout the school year, each graduating student will have numerous opportunities to participate in fundraising activities in order to raise money to put towards the cost of their prom ticket. Only the profit earned for what is sold is deducted from the cost of each graduate’s ticket. For example;

  • Joe sells 1 tub of cookie dough that costs $14. The profit he earns from that tub is $9. That $9 will be deducted from the cost of his prom ticket.

The money raised from fundraisers like bake sales is simply deposited into the Prom 2017 account. It is too difficult to calculate how much each person sold and what each person brought and so on, therefore the money will simply be deposited as a global amount, not for individual students. The advisor keeps a record for each student.

For example, if a student earns a profit of $60 and the ticket costs $100, then the remaining $40 must be paid either by cash or cheque made payable to JHS. The deadline to pay the balance is June 7th, 2017. Post-dated cheques must be made payable for no later than June 20th, 2017. The final cost of the ticket will be determined at the beginning of May.

The cost of a graduating student’s guest (one guest per graduating student), who is not in the graduating class (from JHS or elsewhere), may also be paid for with the money the student raises throughout the year. The deadline is the same: June 7th, 2017.

If a graduating student and/or their guest can no longer attend the Prom, they must give a minimum of 3 days’ notice to the adviser. No money can be refunded to a graduating student and/or their guest if they cancel on the day of the Prom, or if they simply do not show up to the Prom.

Graduating students are expected to behave properly throughout the duration of the Prom activity. They are responsible not only for themselves, but also for their guest. Staff members are not there to enforce discipline! It should go without saying that absolutely no drugs and/or alcohol are permitted at the Prom or anywhere on the premises, even if the student or their guest is over 18. Students will not be permitted to go back and forth to the parking lot unless it is an emergency. Students are also not allowed on the golf course, nor to use golf carts. Security guards are hired to enforce the rules and to ensure the safety of everyone concerned. Anyone found breaking the rules will immediately be asked to leave and escorted off the premises by security.

***Please remember that the JHS Prom is an extra-curricular activity and the balance of the graduating student’s school fees must be paid in full, before the Prom, in order to attend.***

If you have any questions, please contact the school and speak either to Mrs. Lowry or Mme Rainville, Grad Committee advisers.
