On Wednesday, November 4, over 200,000 Grade 9 students across Canada will spend the day at work, job shadowing a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host. This is a great opportunity to participate in a shared experience with your child and discuss possible career paths based on actual experiences. This program is sponsored by "The Learning Partnership". You can read about the program at http://www.thelearningpartnership.ca/TOKW.
Please return the permission form to the Period 1 teacher by Monday, October 26th.
All Grade 9 students will participate in this program. Where possible, parents invite their own child to spend a day on the job. If you are unable to host your own child, there are still ways for your child to participate. Here are some suggestions:
· Ask a relative, neighbour or family friend to host your child at his/her workplace.
· Ask the parent of another Grade 9 student who is participating if your child could join him/her for the day.
· Contact Ms. Papadopoulos by Monday, October 26th to ask for assistance in finding a suitable placement.
Thank you for your support of "Take Our Kids to Work Day."
