On Wednesday, December 20th the middle school will be hosting its annual Career Day event Sponsored by Westfield Company. The goal of Career Day is to expose students to career opportunities and get them thinking about careers they may be interested in prior to selecting their course work in high school.
There will be 31 total careers represented this year. During the week of December 4th all students will have the opportunity to select 5 career presentations of their choice during their social studies class. The 5 choices will be narrowed down to 3 presentations that the students will be scheduled to attend.
Below is the schedule for Career Day and a list of careers that will be present. I am asking that parents to review the list of careers with their children and discuss what the various career options are in order to help the students make thoughtful selections. Our teachers will also be talking with our students about the various careers that are on the list.
I would like that extend a public Thank You to the Westfield Company for their support of the event, and to all of our presenters who are taking valuable time out of their day to share their careers with our students.
Please see the details of Career Day shared below.
The event will take place in the morning from 8:00 am-9:30 am.
