The intermediate boys travelled to Alliston for our area tournament today! They represented Baxter very well with good sportsmanship and skill. They came out with a bang and won a close game against Tec South. In the afternoon they travelled to Ernest Cumberland and lost in the semi finals. The boys showed grit and determination, taking risks, diving for balls and playing like the bears that they are. Congratulations to Ian, Jared, Mitchell, Noah, Brandon, Adam, Aidan, Jesse, Lucas and Dylan!
The Baxter Intermediate Girls volleyball team played exceptionally well in their Zones tournament today. They came in second in the morning round and moved on to play at Adjala Central in the afternoon. They played amazingly in three really close sets, winning one set. The girls were fantastic representatives of our school and had super team spirit. Way to go girls!
Looking for some new tips on dealing with your children? Triple P seminars are being offered again in the evening! Three different seminars: The Power of Positive Parenting, Raising Confident Competent Children and Raising Resilient Children. All for children 2 to 10 years of age.
Tottenham Public School
Thursdays March 27, April 3 and 10 – 7 to 9 pm

Since children don’t come with a manual and parenting is a worthwhile but tough job, these seminars can give you some new tools and techniques that might help!
