Letter sent out end of Feb 2016:


Dear Parents and Teachers,


In addition to WORLD READING DAY on March 3, 2016, a group of students and parents took the initiative of setting up a small area where books and reading material aimed to our TEENAGE and YOUNG ADULT students will be available.


The "Pick it Up- Bring it Back" open book case, will not work as a typical library, but on an honour system basis, whereby students will be able to browse over the books and be free to pick up a book and take it home. Once the student is done reading the book, he or she is expected to bring it back and place it in the "Pick it up- Bring it back" book case once more.


There will be two book cases: one in House C with books for grades 6-8 and the other in House E with books for grades 9-12.


We are also asking for used or new book donations, especially in the ENGLISH LANGUAGE (although all languages are welcome!), suitable for students grades 6 through 12.


Donations should be brought to Mr. Roberts’s office, on the ground floor of the C building. We are accepting donations immediately so that we have a selection to offer on March 3rd, but of course, donations will be welcome all year round.


We are counting with your support as this project will benefit all of our students allowing them to have access to more reading material.



Thank you for your support!


Warm regards,


 CIS students and The PTA

Please continue supporting the students' efforts. There are still gap's to be filled with books. Idea's for donations to the open bookcase for grade 6,7, and 8:
