From academics to extra-curricular clubs and sporting teams, students have hadnumerous opportunities to make a difference and contribute to our school community.The graduating class of 2012 consists of over 112 young men and women who will bemoving on to the next stage in their academic or professional lives. The Coopprogram continues to provide students with opportunities to develop job-ready skillsthrough our relationship with over 150 community employers. Their commitment tothis program is greatly appreciated.We would like to thank our parents, members of the SCI School Council, and our countless partners who are all committed to student success and providingopportunities for students in our community.Our sporting teams have brought much excitement to our community as well withGBSSA championship teams in varsity girls soccer, sr. boys volleyball and sr. tennis.The Robotics Team travelled to Boston representing Canada, competing in the UnitedStates as the sole Canadian entry in this skills competition. The SAID groupcontinues to be very active in bringing the message to our student body about safetyand driving sober.

SCI bids a fond farewell to the following teachers who areleaving SCI at the end of June: Mr. Halupka-Science, Ms.Vaughan-Geography/Science, Ms. Saunders-Life Skills, Mr.Tjeerdsma-Math, Ms. Zaikos-English, Ms. Pouliot-English, Ms.Shanks-Visual Art, Ms. Buie-Phys.Ed., Mr. Hasiuk-Science/Math, Ms. Lamb-French, Mr. Martynuik-Business.We welcome to the SCI family the following teachers: Ms.Duguay-Business, Mr. Jakob-Math, Ms. Briggs-Life Skills, Ms.Mavrou-Science, who will be taking up their teachingresponsibilities in the new academic year.
 After months of public consultations and meetingswith all stakeholders to solicit input, it has been decided thatthe school day for SCI will shift to an early start / earlydeparture model commencing in the 2012-13 school year. Thisshift is in alignment with most of the other high schools withinthe Simcoe County District School Board and will bring with it anumber of advantages to students here in Stayner. Classeswill start at 8:15 am and will finish at 2:25 pm. Buses willdepart within 15 minutes of the end of the school day andstudents will be home up to 90 minutes earlier than atpresent. This will give students more time after school tocomplete homework, secure part time work, participate in after school activities (both at school and in the community) andassist at home. Many students are excited about the shift for these reasons.Please check the revised bus details on the school website atwww.sta.scdsb.on.ca. Announcements regarding changes tobus schedules have been made and information posted on theTV in the lobby. We will include bus routes and times in theJuly Final Report Card mailing this year.The class schedule will be as follows:Travel time between classes is sufficient for students to go totheir lockers, get the required materials for their next class, andvisit the washroom. The earlier lunch will allow students to eatat a time when many students find their attention waning inclass because they are hungry thus promoting better brainfunction and retention.Please post this new bell schedule in a prominent place in your home so that your child will remember when they have to be atschool in September. Thank you for your support as we makethis shift to our new schedule.
Stayner Collegiate Institute School CouncilJune 8th, 2012Dear Parents and School Community:The S.C.I. School Council had a very satisfying 2011/2012school year. The school council held 8 monthly meetingsthroughout the year (on the last Monday of Sept., Oct., Nov.,Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., May) and discussed various issuesduring the year including the Proposal to Change the DailySchedule to early start/early departure, the Clearview EcoParkto support the new Specialist High School Major (SHSM) in theEnvironment, Healthy Active Living, School Food & BeveragePolicy, Drug Awareness, GSA, MyBluePrint.ca, SchoolImprovement Plans, Head On- Concussion InformationSession, Robotics support, The Simcoe Path with the Four Goals (Relevant, purposeful learning supporting highachievement, well being and learning for all; Inclusive,equitable and safe learning environments; Confidence in publiceducation; responsible stewardship of resources),Cyberbullying, use of student activity fees, Commencement,PROGRANTs 2011/2012 and many other interesting SCIschool community topics. These meetings are always open tothe public and we encourage input from parents and other members of the school community.The purpose of the SCI School Council is to help improvestudent achievement and to enhance the accountability of theeducation system to parents. A school council’s primarymeans of achieving its purpose is by making recommendationsto the Principal of the school and the school board. Boards andprincipals are responsible for considering the recommendationsmade by each school council and for advising council of theactions taken in response to the recommendations. Additional achievements of our School Council in 2011/2012included the following: planning, organizing and schedulingactivities and events in our School Library from 7-9pm,planning new school activities including a coffee meet andgreet in the fall, attendance at our Grade 8 Open House inNovember, working to implement our PRO GRANT 2011/2012and now just completing another ProGrant application for the2012/2013 school year. The School Council has had valuablesupport to the goals with our School Improvement Plan2011/2012.This June we also applied for and submitted another PROGRANT application for the 2012 2013 school year and welook forward to being successful with new plans for next schoolyear by having two new events for SCI. The first school widecommunity event is planned for September 20
from 5-8pmwhere we will host “Meet the SCI Teachers” BBQ with aplanned “hay wagon” stage to showcase student, parent &community musical talents. The second event will be in May2013 during Education Week to thank all of our Parent

Our School Council 2011/2012 supported the SCIstaff and graduates by providing a “Congratulations Graduates”cake at Commencement 2012. We also provided a “WelcomeGrade 8s” cake to SCI parents/guardians/staff and students inNovember 2011. School Council supported the endeavors of thestudents, staff, and community at S.C.I. We also continue toprovide a welcoming, warm, safe and caring place for all thosethat enter our school.There were no fund-raising activities conducted by the Councilthis year. Minutes of meetings held and financial records areavailable for public inspection at the school office.We wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of theindividuals who volunteered their time to contribute to thesuccess of the School Council this past year: Donna Lawsonour School Council Chair, Louise Noordegraaf – Secretary,Mary Ellen Walker, Cindi Proud, Larry Culham, Natalka Verra,Heidi Perrin, Parent Reps; Emmett Swanton and Nicole GowanCo-Student Reps; Ben Murray and Kevin Arnott Co-Teacher Reps; Janice Ellerby, Vice Principal, and Jane Seymour,Principal.
