Online Student Survey Student Survey<p style="text-align:justify;">One of the goals in the Simcoe County District School Board learning plan is to support student well-being.  Our school is participating in a Leading Mentally Healthy Schools initiative that supports positive mental health and well-being in our classroom and school environments.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">During April and May, students  grade 4 through 8 will be asked to complete an anonymous on-line survey about how they feel about themselves, their school environment and community.  Your child's teacher will supervise the class during the survey and can answer any questions or concerns your child may have.  These surveys provide students with the opportunity to say what is great about their experiences, as well as express their concerns. The survey results will provide valuable feedback to staff and will help our school develop our Mental Health Plan.  Students will <span lang="EN-CA" style="text-decoration:underline;">not</span> be asked to provide their names and all responses will be combined to ensure confidentiality. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The survey questions cover a range of topics including:</p><ul><li>Resilience</li><li>Self-esteem</li><li>Friendships</li><li>School, family & community supports</li><li>Mental health concerns, such as stress/anxiety, drug/alcohol use, mood/depression</li><li>Coping strategies </li></ul><p>If you have any questions or concerns regarding the research or the survey, please contact Dr. Deborah Scharf at 705-734-6363 extension 11731.  If you have questions or concerns regarding your child's participation in the survey, please contact me directly at 705-424-9992.<br><br>The information that is collected will be used to help guide our school in creating and maintaining safe, supportive learning environments for all students.

Annual World Autism Awareness Day World Autism Awareness Day<p>Saturday, April 2, 2016 marks the 9<sup>th</sup> annual World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD). </p><p>The simple act of 'raising a flag' has the power to unite families, schools and communities and shines a light on the struggles and triumphs of those living with autism.   The Education Act's Regulation 298 (Flag Protocol) mandates the flying of only 1 flag per flag pole and in the case at Baxter Central, we only have one flag pole outside the school that is restricted to the flag of Canada.   Because WAAD officially falls on Saturday this year, <strong>our school will show its support by wearing something blue on Monday April 4, 2016.</strong></p><p>WAAD originated in 2008 as a result of a resolution passed and adopted by the United Nations (UN) in order to bring awareness and reduce the negative stigma associated with autism.   World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) highlights the incredible work that has already been done and still needs to be done to ensure people living with autism are provided with opportunities to lead successful and meaningful lives.   </p><p>Within the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB), the prevalence rate of those identified with autism is 1/42 males and 1/189 females (approximately 1000 students), a number that has increased by more than 100% in the past 7 years.   Given prevalence of autism in our schools and recognizing education's critical role supporting equity and inclusion, the SCDSB is supportive of schools participating in various activities related to WAAD, including the Raise the Flag campaign.    </p><p>Autism Ontario has produced the following  educational video (<a href=""><span lang="EN-CA" style="text-decoration:underline;"></span></a>) about autism. </p>
