Take Our Kids to Work Day (TOKW) is an annual event sponsored by The Learning Partnership that encourages grade 9 students to spend a day with their parent/guardian at their worksite. It is an opportunity for students to develop an appreciation for the importance of staying in school, gaining exposure to skills required in today's workplace, developing an appreciation for parents' roles in making a living, and exploring career options in a practical way. This year the event will be held on Wednesday November 6, 2013.
Information about the event will be coming home with grade 9 students today. We hope that all of our grade 9 students will be able to participate. Online information about the event is available at: http://www.thelearningpartnership.ca/TOKW
