A note from our new nurse, Nurse Joe

Dear M.E.T.S. Community,

First, I’d like to introduce myself,

My name is Joseph Roy, RN. The students call me Nurse Joe. I have been filling in at the M.E.T.S. Charter School as the school nurse for the past few months and now I am the full-time nurse here in Jersey City.

My first order of business here at the M.E.T.S. Charter School is to get to know a little more about the students. I have included with this letter a Student Health Information form (see the link below). This form will help me get to know your children and assist with any health care needs they may have. Please fill it out as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments regarding the healthcare of your child (or children) please do not hesitate to contact me. My phone number is 201.526.8500 ext. 711 and my email is jroy@metscharterschool.org


Here's the link to the health information form:

Yours in Health,

Joe Roy, RN

Before winter break, the Class of 2020 students from Jersey City met with representatives from the Jersey City Mayor's Office in regards to the Jersey City Youth Works Program. This program is a paid internship that takes place over the course of 6 weeks in the summer. Students are being encouraged to apply for this program which requires a resume, transcripts, interview, three essays, and a letter of recommendation. It is open to Class of 2020 residents of Jersey City and provides students with the opportunity to work at prestigious companies such as:

Hudson County Chamber of Commerce

Hyatt Regency Jersey City 

Investors Bank

The above are just a few companies who have partnered with the program, and there are many more. So far, we have had about 35 students from M.E.T.S. who have submitted the initial paperwork to begin the application process. We'd like to see more apply. The program is highly competitive, so get your application in today!

Ms. Zamora and Ms. Casella are sponsoring this activity, and will be holding a resume workshop after school in an effort to guide students in the essay writing process. Dates of this activity will be announced soon.
