Community Outreach Letter
October 16, 2013
Dear PMHS Families,
As you may know, PMHS is in the process of transforming education for our students and providing them with opportunities to engage in rich and meaningful learning experiences both inside and outside the school. In order to do this successfully and on a grand scale, we are in search of individuals who would be willing to share their knowledge, expertise, passions, interests, and experiences with our students.
We are looking to you, valued and respected Pittsfield family members, to ask what you may be able to share with our students that would help them gain a real-life perspective from experienced professionals in the field. Following, is a short survey that will help us get to you know you a little better.
Contact Name: Company/Business Name (if applicable):
Position (if applicable):
Areas of expertise:
Other areas or life experiences that you might wish to share:
With this information, we will create a resource data base for our teachers. This information will be used if they identify a student with a similar interest, curiosity, or “need to know more” about an area you identify. They may also use this information if they are teaching material that demonstrates or highlights your skill, interest, passion, or talent or they may ask you to share an experience that can enhance or enrich their concept, idea, or overall lesson.
We are very much aware of the rich and valuable resources we have within our small community and we would love to build a relationship between you, the school, and specifically the students. Will you help us build a stronger partnership and share your story? If so, please send this completed form back to Sheila Ward at PMHS or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sheila Ward, ELO Coordinator
