Grade 8 & 9 High School Intent Form

Click Here to read original letter

This is a very exciting time for our community. In February 2018, we will be opening St. John Paul II/Faculté St. Jean-Paul II to Grade 8-9 English and French Immersion students. I am very much looking forward to working with staff, students, and families to shape the new school into a community of its very own.

With St. John Paul II/Faculté St. Jean-Paul II set to open less than a year away, we have established a High School Boundary to ensure a smooth start for St. John Paul II/Faculté St. Jean-Paul II, St. Joseph Catholic High School, and the 2017-2018 school year.

Part of our process now to help ensure a smooth 2017-2018 school year is to identify future St. Joseph Catholic High School and St. John Paul II/Faculté St. Jean-Paul II students.

We ask that you please take the time to fill out our High School Intent Form online at:

www.surveymonkey.com/r/HSIntent

By completing the intent form, you will be able to instantly identify your designated high school.

If you do not have internet access to complete the form, please feel free to call our Communications Officer at (780) 532-3013 or email communications@gpcsd.ca to let us know of your intent.

We would appreciate you completing your form by Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

The information that you provide will significantly help us in our hiring and purchasing decisions to prepare the schools for students. With your help, there is no doubt that the 2017-2018 school year will be an exciting and memorable time for you and your family.
