Elementary Schools Celebrate Career Week

Students during career week. thumbnail255381
Students at our elementary schools welcomed professionals (who also happen to be parents of students at the schools) into their classrooms to talk about their careers and share their experiences in a multitude of interesting fields.

The kindergarten through sixth grade students at Rhame and Centre learned about a wide range of careers, including law enforcement, architecture, healthcare, education and more.

Some of the unique lines of work explored were a filmmaker, elevator consultant, airline pilot and scientist. The students even met some new furry friends who do a very important job: therapy dogs!

The students were thrilled to get a glimpse into so many careers in one exciting week and were grateful to the parents that dedicated their time to share their experiences.

To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, our kindergartners made masks and lanterns and used bubble wrap to produce fireworks sounds. They wrote about what their five senses would experience during the celebration and did a dragon parade through the school.
