Career Day 2018

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

What is Career Day?

On Career Day we schedule visits from officials, civil servants, local business, theater, arts, science, and medical professionals – just to name a few!) to speak, present, perform, or do an activity with students about their careers. Guest Speakers are scheduled in all grades K-8. We encourage parents to look into your network of friends, family, and colleagues to invite them to present to our students. (Our teachers have also been wonderful reaching into their networks to find us exciting guests.)

Career Day is a full and exciting day for our children as many periods of their day are filled with guest presentations. It is a fun day for parents who are able to present and share their time in their child’s school. It is also a terrific day for parents who choose to help with the hospitality in the Library. We keep a light food service going all day for our guests and chit chat with them when they are between presentations… feels like a party! (although we are working very diligently). It is also a great day for parents even if you cannot come to the school – the kids will have so much to tell you when they get home – you can’t escape Career Day!

Career Day is a wonderful day to choose to give of your time to support the children. There is something for everyone at Career Day!

Thank you for your attention and for helping to make Career Day another super special day!
