June 18, 2012 WOW! WHAT AN EXCITING YEAR AT SCI.
It is always astounding to see just how much action is packed into one school year at SCI. From academics to extra-curricular clubs and sporting teams, students have had numerous 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 be moving on to the next stage in their academic or professional lives. The Coop program continues to provide students with opportunities to develop job-ready skills through our relationship with over 150 community employers. Their commitment to this 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 providing opportunities for students in our community. Our sporting teams have brought much excitement to our community as well with GBSSA championship teams in varsity girls soccer, sr. boys volleyball and sr. tennis. The Robotics Team travelled to Boston representing Canada, competing in the United States as the sole Canadian entry in this skills competition. The SAID group continues to be very active in bringing the message to our student body about safety and driving sober. And we had two major school wide fund raisers in support of the fight against cancer through the Terry Fox Run and Cops for Cancer. To the Spartans returning in September, have a safe and happy summer. We look forward to your renewed energy and enthusiasm as we continue together on your educational journey.

FAREWELL TO MS. SHERLOCK
Ms. Sherlock has dedicated many years of exemplary teaching and coaching at SCI. We have all enjoyed her positive, optimistic attitude. She has demonstrated many strengths in curriculum and built strong relationships within the SCI community and our Spartan family. During our 2012 Athletic Banquet, we wished her many happy moments as she moves forward with new plans for the 2012/2013 school year.
FAREWELL TO MS. ELLERBY
After being a most vibrant, energetic and dedicated professional, Ms. Ellerby will be taking her strengths and talents as Vice-Principal to the Nantyr Shores Secondary School community.

Stayner Collegiate Institute School Council June 8th, 2012 Dear Parents and School Community: The S.C.I. School Council had a very satisfying 2011/2012 school year. The school council held 8 monthly meetings throughout the year (on the last Monday of Sept., Oct., Nov., Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., May) and discussed various issues during the year including the Proposal to Change the Daily Schedule to early start/early departure, the Clearview EcoPark to support the new Specialist High School Major (SHSM) in the Environment, Healthy Active Living, School Food & Beverage Policy, Drug Awareness, GSA, MyBluePrint.ca, School Improvement Plans, Head On- Concussion Information Session, Robotics support, The Simcoe Path with the Four Goals (Relevant, purposeful learning supporting high achievement, well being and learning for all; Inclusive, equitable and safe learning environments; Confidence in public education; responsible stewardship of resources), Cyberbullying, use of student activity fees, Commencement, PROGRANTs 2011/2012 and many other interesting SCI school community topics. These meetings are always open to the public and we encourage input from parents and other members of the school community. The purpose of the SCI School Council is to help improve student achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. A school council’s primary means of achieving its purpose is by making recommendations to the Principal of the school and the school board. Boards and principals are responsible for considering the recommendations made by each school council and for advising council of the actions taken in response to the recommendations. Additional achievements of our School Council in 2011/2012 included the following: planning, organizing and scheduling activities and events in our School Library from 7-9pm, planning new school activities including a coffee meet and greet in the fall, attendance at our Grade 8 Open House in November, working to implement our PRO GRANT 2011/2012 and now just completing another ProGrant application for the 2012/2013 school year. The School Council has had valuable support to the goals with our School Improvement Plan 2011/2012. This June we also applied for and submitted another PROGRANT application for the 2012 2013 school year and we look forward to being successful with new plans for next school year by having two new events for SCI. The first school wide community event is planned for September 20th from 5-8pm where we will host “Meet the SCI Teachers” BBQ with a planned “hay wagon” stage to showcase student, parent & community musical talents. The second event will be in May 2013 during Education Week to thank all of our Parent
2012-2013 EARLY START/EARLY DEPARTURE
After months of public consultations and meetings with all stakeholders to solicit input, it has been decided that the school day for SCI will shift to an early start / early departure model commencing in the 2012-13 school year. This shift is in alignment with most of the other high schools within the Simcoe County District School Board and will bring with it a number of advantages to students here in Stayner. Classes will start at 8:15 am and will finish at 2:25 pm. Buses will depart within 15 minutes of the end of the school day and students will be home up to 90 minutes earlier than at present. This will give students more time after school to complete homework, secure part time work, participate in after school activities (both at school and in the community) and assist at home. Many students are excited about the shift for these reasons. Please check the revised bus details on the school website at www.sta.scdsb.on.ca. Announcements regarding changes to bus schedules have been made and information posted on the TV in the lobby. We will include bus routes and times in the July Final Report Card mailing this year. The class schedule will be as follows:
Travel Time Period 1 Travel Time Period 2 LUNCH Travel Time Period 4 Travel Time Period 5 8:10 am 8:15 am 9:30 am 9:35 am 10:50 am 11:45 am 11:50 am 1:05 pm 1:10 pm 8:15 am 9:30 am 9:35 am 10:50 am 11:45 am 11:50 am 1:05 pm 1:10 pm 2:25 pm
Travel time between classes is sufficient for students to go to their lockers, get the required materials for their next class, and visit the washroom. The earlier lunch will allow students to eat at a time when many students find their attention waning in class because they are hungry thus promoting better brain function and retention.
Volunteers who support us with transportation drivers, coaches, advisors, Grade 8 Open House and Commencement support volunteers. Our School Council 2011/2012 supported the SCI staff and graduates by providing a “Congratulations Graduates” cake at Commencement 2012. We also provided a “Welcome Grade 8s” cake to SCI parents/guardians/staff and students in November 2011. School Council supported the endeavors of the students, staff, and community at S.C.I. We also continue to provide a welcoming, warm, safe and caring place for all those that enter our school. There were no fund-raising activities conducted by the Council this year. Minutes of meetings held and financial records are available for public inspection at the school office. We wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the individuals who volunteered their time to contribute to the success of the School Council this past year: Donna Lawson our School Council Chair, Louise Noordegraaf – Secretary, Mary Ellen Walker, Cindi Proud, Larry Culham, Natalka Verra, Heidi Perrin, Parent Reps; Emmett Swanton and Nicole Gowan Co-Student Reps; Ben Murray and Kevin Arnott Co-Teacher Reps; Janice Ellerby, Vice Principal, and Jane Seymour, Principal. We are a small but committed group and would also like to thank additional parents and guardians who attended the various monthly meetings this year in order to have their voices heard and input for action for ideas and resources for SCI. We would like to wish the best of luck to candidates in the September 2012 2013 School Council elections. Sincerely, Donna Lawson Join us for summer school, where you will improve your academic skills in an interactive and engaging environment.

Attention New Grade Nine Students! SCI will continue to run the Link Crew program as the focal point of our transition plan for students moving from elementary to secondary school. The Link Crew program connects new Grade 9 students with senior student mentors (Link Leaders), who will help the younger students make the adjustment to high school. The Link Crew will participate in a variety of team-building and academic activities throughout the year, beginning with Grade 9 Orientation (on the first day of school). All grade 9 students should anticipate a welcoming phone call from a Link Leader at the end of August before school begins! For more information, please contact Janice McLeod or Ben Murray.
Please remember to clean out your locker and return all borrowed items.
CANADIAN AND WORLD STUDIES DEPARTMENT
All of the grade 9 students had the opportunity to participate in a walking tour of the CBD “downtown” of Toronto in May. We were very fortunate to have great weather during both trips. We were able to see the new firefighter memorial, visit Queen’s Park, witness a protest along University Avenue, see the Baldwin family estate (which used to be in the country), pass through a very busy Chinatown, see both old and new City Hall, have lunch in the Eaton Centre and walk through a few of the 7 km of underground malls to Union Station and the CN Tower. The views were great and the glass floor was a definite highlight!! Both trips went very well and the students were awesome. Way to go Spartans!! The grade 12 Environmental Geography class toured the sewage treatment plant in Collingwood this spring and saw first hand what is being done to make our water safe. They too had an informative day. For the 12th year, Mrs. Brown took 13 of the senior Geography students across the border to go hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for 4 days. Students had the opportunity to visit some of the tourist attractions in the area and hike various trails. We visited The Flume Gorge, a volcanic dyke and saw many erratics along the way. We took an aerial tramway up to the top of Mt. Cannon and had an excellent view of Franconia Notch which is a U shaped valley carved out by glaciers. Our
cog railway ride up Mt. Washington was great. We were very fortunate as it was an incredible day with sunshine and low winds and we had a 360 degree view of the mountains. It truly was spectacular. We hiked up Mt. Willard and up to Zealand Falls. We also visited the very famous Mt. Washington Resort, one of the 3 remaining grand hotels from the early 1900’s. We were able to tour the hotel and learn about some of the history and then sat out on the verandah as we watched the sun set on Mt. Washington. On the last day, when we were going to tackle some high peaks, we woke up to beautiful sunshine – it was going to be a glorious day!! It took us 3 hours to walk uphill to the summit of Mt. Eisenhower, which at 4760 feet was above the tree line. We had excellent views of the mountains all around us – it was amazing!! We hiked the ridge to Mt. Pierce, and continued to the Mizpah hut which is part of the Appalachian Mountain Trail system. After a musical descent from the very top, we finished out 2 hour downhill trek to the Highland Centre 8 hours after our original departure very tired and proud of our accomplishments!! On to the showers and a much deserved dinner at Fabyans, a converted railway station. It was an amazing day all round. Mrs. Brown and Ms. Walsh would like to congratulate all the hikers for their perseverance, teamwork, positive attitude and excellent spirits throughout the trip. We are very proud of each one of you on your accomplishments and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
PERSONAL PHOTOCOPIES FOR STUDENTS Due to the large volume of personal photocopies students are requesting at the Office, we will be charging 10 cents per photocopy for personal items to cover the cost of the copies and paper. (25 cents for colour copies.)
This has been an exciting year in the Stayner Collegiate library! We have had a video game tournament, movie night in the library, several Library Lives, the White Pine Reading Program, two book-buying field trips to Chapters with the Library Advisory Committee, Book Group on Friday mornings, and a trip to Toronto to participate in the White Pine Provincial Celebration. Thank you to all the students who participated in these events. Your input helps to make the library a great space for reading, playing, and learning. Sarah Harris, Melanie Connell, Lisa Brown, Samantha Tapley, Ms. Jeffrey
GRAD BREAKFAST AN ANNUAL TRADITION
Once again, the Administration at SCI put on their aprons and prepared breakfast for all the graduating students and staff at SCI on June 6, 2012. Special assistance was provided by our OPP Liaison Officer, Constable Mark Stadig who whipped up a mean batch of pancakes for everyone’s enjoyment. Rounding out the team was our ever helpful Cafeteria manager, Lisa Jacksch. “We are always so happy to see everyone with such an appreciative smile on their faces when we make breakfast for them,” said Ms Seymour, Principal. “They always seem surprised that we know how to cook!” ROBOTICS WRAPS UP THE YEAR WITH COMMUNITY DEMO The SCI Robotics Team, the Cyber Gnomes, wrapped up the 2011-12 year with a demonstration at the New Lowell Legion on Friday May 4. Over 100 members of our community came out to see our robot in action and try their hands at the controls to make it pick up foam basketballs and shoot them toward a basket. MP Jim Wilson and Mayor Ken Ferguson of Clearview Township both marveled at the ingenuity of our Robotics students and promised continuing support for our program here at SCI. Our thanks go out to everyone at the New Lowell Legion for hosting this annual event and for their continuing support of Robotics. We will be very sad to see 4 members of our team leave this year, but are proud to have them graduate – Captain Andrew Bronee, Lisa Brown, Samantha Tapley, and Anna Chantler who leave a lasting legacy with the Cyber Gnomes and will be sorely missed. Continuing with the team next year are Jakob Lawson, Conor Watt, Chris Gabriels, Ian Jones, Judah Page, Patrick Honeywell, Matt White, and Luke Auclair. We are actively looking for new members of the Robotics team – if you like meeting new people, challenge, thinking out of the box, making things work, and have a “never give up” attitude, then the Cyber Gnomes want you!!!
FRENCH DEPARTMENT The teachers of the French department, Mr. Arnott and Ms. Lamb, congratulate students on their success this year. One of our highlights certainly was the very successful and enjoyable trip to the Toronto International Film Festival’s Lightbox Theatre, the Centre Eaton and finally LePapillon on Front for lunch. Be sure to return your textbook (and workbook if you have received one) on the day of the final evaluation. Keep that French-English dictionary handy! Bonne chance, tout le monde!
Decide your ride.
White Face Day
BYO Bannana Students Against Impaired Driving kept very busy during this school year under the leadership of student president Michelle Nuttley and staff advisor Mr. Arnott as it worked to raise awareness of the hazards of substance abuse mixed with driving. Too many members of our school community have learned first hand the pain and loss suffered when those we care about make wrong decisions to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or drugs. Our S.A.I.D. Week this past month packed a very real punch as we heard guest speakers talk of the loss of classmates, family members or friends. As we look ahead to next year, we welcome the support and fresh ideas of new participants in the group. We look forward to your involvement in this very worthy cause. Take the message to heart: substance abuse and driving—that means the use of alcohol or drugs--can result in death or irreversible damage to us, our friends and our family members. Teens for Christ BBQ for the Door
The Teens For Christ group met weekly in Room 118 on Tuesdays at 11:30. On December 16th, we prepared a full turkey dinner for 34 individuals affiliated with The Door in Stayner. In May, we hosted a hotdog barbecue for S.C.I. staff and students with proceeds going to The Door in Stayner and the food bank. In the fall, we will be open to ideas on where we can be involved and make a difference in the lives of others in the community and we welcome new members.
COMMUNITY NEWS—NEW LOWELL FARMERS’ MARKET
The New Lowell Framers’ Market is part of the fundraising efforts of the New Lowell Parks and Recreation Service Board. This fundraising partnership rents tables to interested local vendors and has a booth for the community to raise money for projects in the park. The service board is a committee of Clearview Twp. Council. Ms. Heidi Sterrenberg and Mrs. Deb Bronee are heading up the efforts for the Farmers’ Market. The intent of this community partnership is to run the market on Wednesdays from the week after the long weekend in May until the week after Labour Day and a couple of Saturdays around Thanksgiving. The New Lowell Community library has also shown great interest in being there this year. Students may earn community service hours as well. The New Lowell Community Farmers’ Market has a page on Facebook and is looking for student volunteers throughout the season to earn Community Service hours. Students are invited to contact the Farmers’ Market for more information.
Another great year of Spartan athletics wrapped up with the completion of the spring season. This year, two of our teams and one individual athlete had the honour of representing the Georgian Bay Secondary Athletic Association at the Ontario championships including the senior boys volleyball team in the fall, the varsity girls soccer team in the spring and Sakurako Sudo in the spring for senior girls tennis. On Tuesday, June 12th we held our annual athletic assembly to celebrate the year that was and the following students were recognized for individual awards:

Sako Sudo represented SCI at OFSSA for tennis June 4-6. She started the tournament off with a bang, beating her competitor 6-2. Unfortunately, her next match was one of the top seeded girls...and Sako lost 6-3. The next match was an incredible battle of two well matched girls. Sako and her opponent battled for over 90 minutes ending the match in a tie breaker. During tie breaker play, they were still equally matched. Finally, the game came to an end with a loss for Sako 8-7. Sako represented SCI with fair play and amazing sportsmanship. She demonstrated great support for fellow GBSSA athletes from CCI and Banting. Sako should be very proud of her accomplishments while at SCI. Great job!
OFSSA SENIOR BOYS' VOLLEYBALL
The Senior boys’ volleyball team had a successful season winning the GBSSA championship on home turf defeating the well established team Le Caron 3-1 in the finals. Our win at GBSSA meant that SCI had secured a spot at the prestigious all Ontario high school volleyball playoffs (commonly referred to as OFSAA). There were 20 teams across the region and the tournament spanned over 3 days on the gorgeous Manitoulin Island. Our team played well, often taking most matches to 3 games with a 2 out of 3 format. Our highlight at OFSAA occurred against Woodland Christian who was undefeated when we played them and the bronze medalist at the tournament. Stayner surprised both the fans and their coach defeating them in the 1st game; unfortunately we lost the next two nail-biting games. The players showed determination, sportsmanship and class throughout the entire tournament. The players represented SCI and should be proud of their dedication and maturity throughout the season!
OFSSA SENIOR GIRLS’ SOCCER
The Stayner Varsity Girls’ Soccer Team had a great time at OFSAA and the girls represented SCI with pride. We were ahead in game 1, 3-1 at 1/2, but by the final 10 minutes the other team had tied us and they ended up scoring the winning goal in the last 20 seconds. A tough start however the girls bounced back. Game 2 got off to a tough start. We played a VERY physical team who went on a bender and scored 3 goals in 8 minutes!. But our girls dug deep and came back to tie up the game for a final 3-3 score. The team played amazing defense and their offense was unstoppable. Ms. Sherlock and Ms. Rusnak would like to thank the team for their commitment and hard work which earned the girls an undefeated regular season. Both coaches had never experienced such a great season and are amazed at the Grade 9 and 10 girls who developed their skills to compete at the senior level. Congratulations go out to the following girls: Shelby Rolling, Sam Marsh, and Alekz Aubry (all captains), Jodi Rawn (keeper) Michaela Verstraten, Holly Lasalle Fraser, Kennedy Brown, Paige Kennedy, Rayanne White, Rachel Goorts, Maddie Tucci, Kelsey Cripps, Dayna Noordegraaf, Kalena Noordegraaf, Melissa Ball, Marissa Buckland, Ally Marsh and Emily Sutherland. Special thanks go out to our Fantastic Manager Jacob Shaw.
CIVICS AND THE YOUTH PHILANTHROPY INITIATIVE AT SCI Once again the Civics Classes at SCI had another wonderful experience delving into philanthropy with the Youth Philanthropy Initiative created by the Toskan Casale Foundation. Students from each Civics class at SCI learn about the needs in their local communities by studying, researching, visiting and interviewing leaders of their local charities. Teachers involved in this year’s YPI experience in alphabetical order were: Ms. Brown, Ms. Kowalchuk and Mr. McNea. Students create final presentations about their charities and present them to their teachers and peers. One group is chosen as a finalist and their charity benefits from a $5000 grant from the Toskan Casale Foundation. The winning group participates in the annual YPI Event and Convention in Toronto each May.
Final Presentation Judges: Sarah Humby, Lauren Shoremen, Ms. Ellerby, Ms. Jeffrey, Ms. Seymour, Nicole Gowan
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative is a one-of-a-kind experience that engages young people in creating social change and gets them growing compassionate communities. YPI engages students within their community and develops teamwork, communication, research and presentation skills.

CLASSES EXPERIENCE LAW FIRST HAND!
As part of the Gr.11 and 12 Law programs, SCI visited Queen's Park, Osgoode Hall and the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto on May 24. This up close look at law in action and a tour of Queen's Park was informative and brought meaning to the legal process in our province. A great day was had by all students!
This year's Outdoors Club paddled a 62 km route in the Upper French River from Wolseley Bay to east Lake Nipissing and back again over a period of 4 days. If you have what it takes to train for, and participate in a fantastic wilderness experience, look for announcements in the spring of 2013 for your next opportunity to join this dynamic club.
JUNIOR BOYS RUGBY SEASON
Our junior team consisted of 17 grade 9’s and 9 grade 10’s, so 2/3 of our team were new to the sport of rugby. Everyone learned a lot about rugby from our 2 coaches – Mark Coombes and John Kitchen – our community volunteers with lots of experience and a willingness to assist because of their love of the game! SCI staff who assisted with the team were Mrs. Verra, Mr. Dickson & Mr. Murray. Our best game was against St. Theresa’s (46-0) when we had ALL our players present for the first time all season. The Juniors played a great game of skill and it was the first game where we had no injuries. Most games we were missing players due to injuries, either suffered during the games or from previous games. Our players demonstrated great sportsmanlike conduct and team spirit all season. A few grade 10 players – Luke Elwood, Brandon Carruthers, Troy Beattie, Chris McPherson and Jacob Sutherland - took on a leadership role within the team and assisted in coaching the grade 9’s in learning their positions and different plays as well as demonstrating athleticism with their warm ups and drills. Some of our grade 9 students – the Kennedy brothers, Evan & Michael - picked up the game quickly and shone on the field scoring numerous try’s with their speed and tackling abilities. All in all, it was a successful season for the juniors in terms of learning skills, making friends and building team camaraderie. They finished the season with 2 wins and 3 losses plus the final loss in playoffs. However with such a large group of grade 9’s this year, we can look forward to a great season next year with these students coming back and sharing their knowledge with the new kids and forming a strong, competitive team!
SENIOR BOYS’ BASKETBALL
Our senior boys demonstrated amazing stamina, good sportsmanship and a wonderful sense of humour throughout our season, whether at their 7:00 a.m. practices, after school get-togethers or at their games. The competition was fierce and at times discouraging but these gentlemen continually bounced back and gave it their all at every game. Congratulations from coaches den Bok and Arnott to all our players and, in particular, to the one who racked up great numbers of points, displayed endless energy on the court even when exhaustion or illness were factors and, who was voted our Most Valuable Player—the pick even of coaches on other teams—Nathan Bennoit.
THE CHEMISTRY RAP
On Friday June 1st, 2012, the Grade 12 University Chemistry students performed a chemistry rap song and dance routine in the front lobby of Stayner Collegiate during lunch. The grade 12 chemistry students took concepts learned in class and made a rap song to the tune of Vanilla Ice’s song “Ice-Ice Baby”. Changing the words of the song, the students came up with “Chem-Chem-baby” which was recorded in class on the program Garageband. Topics covered in the song include electrons bumping, energy levels of atoms, naming carbon chains, calories, activation energy, moles and more. The creation of the song and dance routine involved teamwork and confidence. The chemistry students broadcasted the time of the routine via twitter, Facebook and word of mouth. There was a very large crowd in the lobby waiting to see the performance. Anna Chantler and Michelle Nuttley said, “ It was the most thrilling moment of my high school career”, and “I had an instant adrenaline rush the second I saw the screaming crowd.”

SCI STUDENTS CHECK OUT STREAM BUGS TO DETERMINE WATER QUALITY
On a chilly May morning students from Mr. McNea’s Grade Ten Science class, along with some of our Environmental Specialist High Skills Major students, ventured into Lamont Creek in search of the creepycrawleys that live at the bottom of the creek. A representative from the Environmental Educational Group in Toronto called Eco-Spark came out to teach our students the connection between water quality and small bottom dwelling stream bugs (a.k.a benthic macro-invertebrates). The students performed a stream assessment exercise by dividing 40 metres of Lamont Creek into 6 areas and sampling the insects found along the stream bed in these areas. The students were then responsible for identifying a sample of the insects they had collected and analyzing the number of each type of insect they had found to determine the general water quality of Lamont Creek. With this study there are 3 categories that the water quality can fall into – impaired, potentially impaired or unimpaired. The student’s conclusion for the section of Lamont Creek that travels through Centennial Park was “potentially impaired”. We hope to repeat this exercise again next spring to compare the results and get a better feeling for the water quality in this area.
CLEARVIEW COUNCIL APPROVES CLEARVIEW “ECOPARK”
On Monday May 28th, Clearview Township Council approved the creation of a Simcoe County District School Board environmental learning centre at the former Nottawasaga gravel pit located on the Sixth Line. The Clearview Eco-Park will provide a hands-on outdoor classroom for the students of SCI who will be helping to finish the rehabilitation of the site in an eco-friendly manner without the use of heavy equipment. The land has been undergoing natural rehabilitation for the past decade and is already a teaching site rich in opportunity for student learning. The site contains a multitude of ecosystem types for study: wetland, meadow, forest, scrubland and even a small creek that runs through the far end of the property. While visiting the site earlier in May with representatives from Clearview Township and SCDSB, a few SCI staff were greeted by a chorus of frogs, caught glimpses of red-winged blackbirds and were amazed by the multitude of crayfish holes dotting the mud around the wetland areas. This is an opportunity for all areas of study at SCI including but not limited to the Arts, Technology, Geography, Physical Education and Science departments to be involved in hands-on learning of the natural world. It is also a great complement to our new Environmental program here at SCI – the Environmental Specialist High Skills Major. (SHSM)
S.C.I. STUDENTS DIG IN FOR WATER QUALITY In May two bus loads of S.C.I. students joined forces with the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority to plant trees in an area of Clearview Township just off of Mowat Street . Sixty-one of our Grade Nine students worked in small groups led by Link Crew Leaders, along with students from Life Skills and the Learning Resource Centre to take part in this local environmental initiative. The students spent the morning planting native tree seedlings, covering the area directly around the seedlings with brush blankets to help give these new plants a chance of becoming established. The tree plant was one of many mass plantings that happened in the month of May organized by the NVCA to help with local water quality. This was a great opportunity for our students to get hands on experience in the natural environment, and feel good about the fact that they are helping their local community. As well as encouraging the students to have fun re-connecting with the natural environment, the activity allowed the students to understand that trees do a lot more than just clean the air. A special thanks goes out to Stayner Home Hardware, who supported the event by giving a discount to purchase a number of shovels which allowed us to have such a large number of students involved. As we increase our environmental programming at Stayner these shovels will be used for many different hands-on environmental learning activities. We are also thankful to Fred Dobbs and Sarah Campbell of the NVCA who hosted the tree planting morning for us.
On Wednesday, May 30, students from SCI's Learning Centre and Life Skills classes traveled to Barrie North Collegiate for the Olympics Extravaganza. Students had the opportunity to participate in Olympic style events with peers from other county classes. Some favourite events included "Chuck the Chicken" and "Sponge Races". Our students demonstrated great positive attitude, sportsmanship, and teamwork at the event. Go, Spartans, go!
On Friday, June 8, Life Skills, Learning Centre and grade 10 Art students traveled to Medieval Times to take in some dinner and excitement! The show was spectacular and was enjoyed by all.
T.J.Fountain and Kaitlynn Jones won honourable mention at the BMFA juried art show in Collingwood in March. Their work was chosen from over 150 pieces of high school student art on display.
THIRTY FOUR CREDIT CAP INFORMATION FOR SCI SCHOOL COMMUNITY The Ministry of Education is sharing additional information with students, parents, guardians, staff and school councils, on the 34-credit cap which was proposed in the 2012 provincial budget. The ministry is aware that there are a lot of misconceptions about what this means and therefore they have created a 'Frequently Asked Questions' document. This 34 credit cap information has been posted on our SCDSB public website at http://scdsb.on.ca/student-street/secondary-school -course-selection/ and can also be accessed on the Ministry website at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/students/faqs.html SCI will continue to keep everyone informed with information on how the Ministry will be moving forward with this, as more information is available, and we will communicate any updates which will be advised by our Board to me, with our SCI community in a most timely manner.

HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Ms. Sherlock's grade 9 Phys-ed class performed some awesome hip hop routines. The girls received great instruction from their peer assistant Ally Marsh. The Life Skill class enjoyed their games of up/down dodgeball with the grade 12's. This was one of their favourite games in Phys-Ed class this semester. The grade 11 girls fitness/dance class demonstrated great leadership skills this semester. The girls taught a week of Hip Hop to the grade 7& 8 girls from Clearview Meadows Elementary School. The class displayed great team work and effective communication skills. A performance at the end of the week showcased incredible dance talent from both schools. This program was a great success and we look forward to doing it again next year!
Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." -- Francis of Assisi It has been another busy semester for coop students! 8 new apprentices will be signed in their chosen careers this semester. Thank you to all our employers who were able to join us in celebrating all that they do for their Coop students at the Employer Appreciation Breakfast hosted at the Golden Apple Restaurant in Stayner. THANK YOU EMPLOYERS!!!! We hope to see you again next year! Many students have excelled in their workplaces and have secured part-time or summer employment opportunities. SCI is extremely fortunate to have strong support for our students from local employers. We are continually looking at new employment avenues for students to explore and would appreciate any assistance parents, employers, employees, or service agencies might offer in the form of workplace experiences, guest speakers, and apprenticeship opportunities. We wish all students a very SAFE and happy summer
Remember Most injuries among new workers happen within the first year of work. Learning to identify potential workplace hazards, knowing your rights and responsibilities and how to protect yourself on the job will help you avoid the cost of a work related injury. Before you start your new summer job or continue with a job you may already have, be aware of the potential hazards in your workplace. A Message from the Coop Department Joan Walsh, Erik Morris There are many new initiatives next year in which Coop will be involved, including the new Environmental Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) and Dual Credits. Students should seek information from the Student Success and Student Services Departments.
THE HEAT IS ON!
Ms. Ellerby, Mr. Dickson, Mr. Murray, Ms. Rusnak
This spring Stayner Collegiate Institute decided to run a Cops/Cuts for Cancer fundraising campaign from May 23rd to June 15th, 2012. We did this to acknowledge the devastating impact cancer has had and continues to have on the lives of staff, students, family and community members of Stayner and surrounding areas. Our goal was to raise $7000. We had 5 adult volunteers and a number of students who committed to cut their hair for Wigs for Kids) or shave their heads to motivate our community. At $1000.00 Constable Stadig said he would shave his head. At $2500, Ms. Rusnak would shave her's. At $3500, Mr. Murray would shave his hair. At $5000, Mr. Dickson would lose his locks and last but not least, Ms. Ellerby (our VP) represented our goal of $7000.
Amanda Dixon, Tori Phillips, Klerissa Huson, Milo Harrison
22 We are pleased to announce that the community of Stayner Collegiate stepped up to support our cause above and beyond our expectations. In total we collected over $7700!!! This result meant that all 5 adults who volunteered had their hair buzzed off. Three of our students (Torie Phillips, Klerissa Huson and Amanda Dixon) each donated 8 inches of hair to the Wigs for Kids foundation and Milo Harrison (another student) shaved his head. We appreciated the time Frank the Barber (from Stayner) and Julie and Sabrina from the Cutting Edge (in Wasaga Beach) donated to our cause. Thanks to Pizza Hut for donating the pizza prize to our top homeroom fundraisers. And finally, thanks to our community of neighbours, family and friends we realized our goals and learned a lot about what it means to do good for others.
