Take Our Kids To Work Day

Grade 9 Students - Take Our Kids to Work

Students know one day they will become part of the adult world of work.  Take Our Kids to Work gives grade nine students an opportunity to glance into this world, to gain respect for the contributions people make, and to strengthen the bonds between parents, students, and the community.  In the process, young people can discover the links between education and their own futures in a practical way.

The national initiative of Take Our Kids to Work is scheduled for Wednesday, November 6, 2019.  We hope you will be able to arrange for your son/daughter to accompany you (though it could also be a friend or relative) to your place of employment for the entire day.  Students are expected to interview you or other employees to answer questions about the workplace. Grade 9 students will receive copies of the consent form, but the form is also attached here.  Please read and complete the accompanying forms and return them to the office no later than Wednesday October 30.

Feel free to contact your child’s Health teacher or Ms. Nelson, at the school if you have any questions or concerns about the program, or check the website at www.takeourkidstowork.ca and look for TOKW resources.  A copy of the parent information brochure is also attached.
