Welcome Letter

Welcome to PATHS  Woodworking          


 Dear Parents/Guardians and Families,

PATHS Open House /B-B-Q will be held on Thursday September 29th, at 5:30. This is a great

 opportunity for your student to show you around the woodworking shop and PATHS.

The class website http://paths.portlandschools.org/programs/woodworking is a great resource for information, photos, forms and videos. 

  1. Attendance is very important at PATHS.  If your student is ill, has a doctor’s appointment or family emergency, you must write a note to PATHS (no phone calls ) excusing them within 5 school days of the missed day.  A note to their sending school will not work.
  2. Dress code: No shorts/short skirts,  No open toed shoes, flip-flops or sandals are not allowed, they are a safety hazard.
  3. I have enclosed the mandatory Health questionnaire, Emergency contact sheet, Learning styles sheet, Safety contract and Photo/web release forms.  Please fill them out and have your student return them to me.  They are due by Monday. September 12th.
  4. Parent/Teacher conferences are in November and April.  If you can not attend during the suggested times, I will make arrangements to meet at a more convenient time or do a phone conference. Please feel free to contact me before conferences .
  5. Please, call or e-mail me if you have any questions or comments.  E-mail is my favorite method of communication,  I usually answer quicker! My phone has a mailbox and you can always leave a message.

I look forward to meeting you.
