Take our Kids to Work Day-November 4, 2015

Dear Parent/Guardian:

On Wednesday, November 4, all grade 9 students are invited to take part in Take Our Kids To Work day.  Students across Canada will be given the opportunity to accompany a parent, relative or friend to work for the day.  Participation in this event from West Carleton students is very high with virtually all grade 9 students participating.

This day is meant to foster in our young people an understanding of what it means to go to work.  Parents, educators, business people and community leaders are committed to making this day a valuable learning experience.

In order to participate in this event, the consent form that has been given to your student during their homeroom class must be filled out and returned to their homeroom teacher as soon as possible.  For additional information about how to provide a safe educational workplace visit, or information about the program in general, please refer to

If you need an additional copy of the consent form you can get it from this link:   TOKTW consent form.

If you have any further questions please contact your child’s guidance counsellor.
