Hello Mini School family. This is a quick note for grade 9 students and parents regarding Take Our Kids to Work Day November 4th. http://www.thelearningpartnership.ca/what-we-do/student-programs/take-our-kids-to-work


Tupper Secondary is running this program for grade 10 students as a part of the Planning 10 course. This does not stop and grade 9 from taking part and after surveying the grade 9 Mini’s I learned that over 20 students were planning on taking part. Because I don’t see the kids on the 4th, they need to be sure to inform all their day 1 teachers. If your are planning on participating please be sure to provide your child with a note like the example below.

To Whom It May Concern: My son/daughter is taking part in Take Your Kids to Work Day on November 4th, 2015 from (time and periods). They will be spending the day (work site). Thank you.


Parent/guardian printed name

Parent/guardian signature

This note will then be stamped on the reverse side by the office staff (we no longer have paper attachments for teacher signatures) and the student will receive an excused absence for the respective time. You may still receive a synervoice about the absence, but eventually the absence will be excused on the students record.

I hope this clarifies any questions you may have about this national event.
