We use school cash online to accept registration fees, field trips and other payments you may make to the school.  Closer to the start of school you can sign up for school cash online by visiting this link.

​Community Service Hours

Did you know, students must complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to graduate?  Students are eligible to begin completing these hours as soon as they officially graduate grade 8!  Consider using the summer before Grade 9 starts to find ways to volunteer in our community.  We have lots of community events and organizations that could use your help!  Click here to view the requirements and/or download a tracking form.

JMSS Student Success Team

Our Student Success Team works with students, parents and teachers to ensure that a plan is put in place for each student to work toward achieving their credits.  Student success strategies may include extra help sessions, alternative workspace, credit recovery or credit rescue initiatives.  Students may be approached by members of this team during the course of the school year as an extra support.  Many of the student success strategies are available to all students, listen to announcements for these opportunities. Mr. Regan and Mrs. Terry are in charge of Student Success and JMSS.

Resource and Enrichment Centre

The REC is open to all students who require extra assistance in any subject area, or an alternative space to work.  Students with an Individual Education Plan will meet with the Resource Teacher to review and discuss their IEP annually.  If you have any questions regarding an IEP, please contact Heather DeNure –​​
