About 160 students enjoyed a lively and thoughtful talk which covered lots of ground. . . literally lots of ground as he described research trips to Africa, South America and more. We were entertained by his stories of what went into creating some of his more famous novels, but we also were challenged to think about how we can be global citizens in today's diverse world.
YA author Eric Walters will be at CCI doing a presentation in the library, period one, on Tuesday Oct 18th.
If you would like to attend this free event, pick up a permission form in the library and get your period one teacher's signature.
If you have one of his novels of your own, be sure to bring it and get his autograph on it!
CCI will be running the OSSLT (Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test) for all grade 10s and some grade 11s on Thursday, Oct. 20th in the morning. If you are not writing the test, your bus will make a second run to pick you up approx. 4 1/4 hours after your usual pick up time.
All four classes will run (shortened periods) in the afternoon starting at 12:45.
The library will be used in the afternoon for students needing extra time for the test, and therefore will NOT be open for regular use at all on Thursday.
But the good news for you? Friday is a PA Day, so no school for students! Enjoy your long weekend everyone.
Connecting to wifi at CCI using a personal device is changing !!
As of Nov 1st, the "scdsbgw" guest wifi connection will no longer work, so before then you need to start using the "byodscdsb" wifi connection on your personal devices.
The big advantage of this new system is that you only have to log in with your school username and password ONCE (when you first set things up) and after that you will be automatically logged in, on that device, when you connect to the byodscdsb network (byodscdsb = bring your own device Simcoe County District School Board)
There are several steps involved in setting up this connection however, so please choose the correct file below and follow the instructions step by step.
Print copies of these handouts are also available in the library.
