  1. Other info

 

This class is a “hands on” class.  We will spend around 70% of time in the shop working on various activities. In this class your student will be welding, using a cutting torch, operating plasma and MIG welders, and working on basic homeowner skills (plumbing, electricity, concrete work, etc.).  I feel that this class offers the students an opportunity to practice on real life skills.  I will be giving a safety test to begin the class and we will go over all the safety measures for each skill that we will teach.  If you have any concerns or questions concerning the material covered in this class feel free to call me at 931-285-2300 ext. 4040 or email me at jonesj11@mauryk12.org.  I am asking you as the parent to sign in the spaces below letting me know that you have received and reviewed the standards for this class.  Your student will not be allowed to begin the shop skills until the signatures are returned to me (You can keep the top portion for your records) .  I will go over the standards in class with the students.  Please list any medical issues that you feel I should know about your student.  Thanks for your time.
