Job Shadow Letter

Job Shadow Day-April 12, 2017


Again this year, the 8th grade at Mahoney Middle School is participating in the Job Shadow Program.  On Friday, April 12, from 9AM – 1PM, the students will be heading out into the Greater Portland Community to spend a few hours experiencing a “real world” job.  We are very fortunate to have so many businesses willing to host our students.


We ask the help of all parents/guardians in assuring that the program works smoothly.  A packet will be given out to the students on March 20th It will contain a permission form, a student contract, and other important information about the day.  Please read it carefully, with your student, so you know what’s involved.  The packet must be returned by Tuesday, March 28th. It must be signed by the parent/guardian and by the student, in order for the student to be considered for the Job Shadow Program. No student will be allowed to go on the Job Shadow Day without these signed forms. No packets will be accepted after the due date Tuesday, March 28th. Students who meet the program guidelines will be assigned a Job Shadow site as soon as their forms come back, so the sooner they are returned the better their opportunities will be.


Please make sure that your student has a lunch on the 17th, unless otherwise indicated. Some host sites provide a lunch, but all students should have a lunch with them just to be sure they have something to eat during their day.


Part of the student contract is that the students must agree to conduct themselves in a mature, responsible, professional manner at the work place, and comply with standard school rules for participation in activities.  They must also agree to be a goodwill ambassador and represent Mahoney Middle School in a positive and cooperative manner.  Appropriate attire is required . Students who are not dressed appropriately will not be allowed to go to their job site, and will stay behind to complete a written assignment. If there are questions about suitable attire, please contact the School 


All students have the option to choose to arrange his/her own Job Shadow placement. A separate application will be provided. If the student is self placed, they will not be required to come to school at all on April 12th  They will, however, be responsible for his/her own transportation and writing a Thank You note to their host.


Job Shadow Day has been a highlight of the eighth grade experience. We hope that the student chooses a job placement in an area in which they are really interested. Job shadowing is the culmination of the Career  Exploration unit and is designed to increase career awareness. We all look forward to helping each student find the best fit and make the most of Job Shadow Day.


If you have any questions, please contact the School Counselor at Mahoney Middle School at 799-5386.  Or you can contact Molly Aldrich, Director of Volunteer Services and Job Shadow Coordinator, at 773-5629, ext. 3432, AldricMo@spsd.org
