Volunteer Appreciation Tea Appreciation Tea<p>​This is a reminder that we are hosting our appreciation tea for our community volunteers tomorrow at 10:20 in the library. Together, we make Baxter Central a great place for student learning and a place to be.</p>
Baxter Community Planning Meeting Community Planning Meeting<p>Baxter Central Public School will be creating a two acre outdoor learning environment on our property.  This started with a student voice project lead by four grade seven students, and has now expanded to involve school, board and Ministry funds.  Since the group most impacted by this project will be students, we wanted to ensure that all parents and students had an opportunity to share in the planning and creation of this space.</p><p>Please join us in the library on Monday, June 13th, from 3:40 to 5:00.  We will be planning our community planting day that will take place on June 17th.  We will also be planning out the stages of the development of our naturalized area, and investigating community resources for the planning and creation of our space. Over $4000 through provincial funding has been spent to purchase shrubs and shade trees that will be planted in the fall in this area.</p><p>Please contact Sean Cappadocia (principal) or Andrew Morrison (teacher-librarian) to let us know you are planning to attend.</p><p>Free childcare will be available to parents, so you are able to come right to the meeting.  Please inform us of the number and ages of children you will be bringing if you would like to make use of this service.​</p>
Council Annual Report 2015/16 Annual Report 2015/16<p>Baxter Central PS Council Annual Report for the 2015-2016 School Year Dear Parents and School Community:</p><p>We hope you have a safe and happy summer. The Baxter Central PS School Council had a very rewarding 2015-2016 school year. The school council held 7 meetings on October 5, November 2, December 7, February 1, April 4, May 2 and June 6.. These meeting were open to the public to encourage input from parents and other members of the school community. We worked on various issues during the year including continuing to upgrade our technology with the purchase of 23 Chromebooks, and 11 ipads. We held several fundraisers to help support our play areas, continue our breakfast club, and healthy snack program, to support classroom needs, and also held our annual Christmas Treasures and Arts in the Pasture events.</p><p>The purpose of the school council is to help improve student achievement and to enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. School councils are advisory organizations. A school council's primary means of achieving its purpose is by making recommendations to the principle of the school and the school board. Boards and principals are responsible for considering the recommendation made by each school council and for advising the council(s) of the actions taken in response to the recommendations. A record of minutes and actions are kept in the School Council Continuity Binder.</p><p>Fund-raising activities were also conducted and the proceeds were used to fund projects in accordance with the school board policies. These fund-raising activities are identified in the attached financial summary entitles " Sources and Uses of Project Funds".  Records of minutes with the financial records are available for public inspection in the School Council Continuity Binder.</p><p>We wish to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the many individuals who volunteered their time to contribute to the success of the school council last year. Special thanks are due to the following members of the 2015-2016-school council:</p><p>Co-Chairs: Brandy Rafeek and Deane Piercey</p><p>Secretary: Tanya Grant</p><p>Non-teaching Rep: Sandra Lee</p><p>Members: Tanya Grant, Rena Finch, Andrea Walker and Andrea Dragicevic. Teaching Rep: Melanie Grasser and the members of student council.</p><p>Finally, we would like to wish the best of luck to the candidates in the Sept. 2016-2017 school council elections. Issues that we foresee as being important matters for the consideration of the new school council are offering a workshop to parents on internet safety, and continuing to engage parent involvement.</p><p>Sincerely Yours,</p><p>Brandy Rafeek & Deane Piercey - Co-chairs</p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Baxter Central Public School Fundraising 2015-2016</strong></p><div style="text-align:center;"> </div><table width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr style="text-align:center;"><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:50%;"><strong>FUNDRAISER</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:50%;"><strong>PROFIT</strong></td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Arts in the Pasture</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$5175.00</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Barrie Colts Tickets</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$684.00</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Chocolate Sales</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$3522.35</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Christmas Treasures</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$1299.85</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Clothing Drive Kidney Foundation</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$867.10</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Concessions at Tournaments</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$562.02</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Dance A Thon</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">2555.70</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Lunch Program (Milk, Pizza, Chicken)</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$6291</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Magazine Sales</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$141.29</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Restaurant Nights</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$425.00</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Snow Valley Coupons</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$419.98</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Book Fair</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$751.87</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Greeting Cards</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$883.75</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Musical</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">$988.55</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"> </td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"> </td></tr></tbody></table>
