Second graders at the Primary School received an early inside education on career choices at the 2nd Grade Career Cafe organized by counselor Dr. Mariellen Kerr on May 12th. Each second grade class visited with each of the seven presenters to learn the highlights of each career. The format was designed to spark an interest in career choices. By the end of the 45 minute period the students were exposed to a variety of career opportunities (Think speed dating!).
The Career Cafe was the culminating event to the second grade career awareness unit. Several representatives from our community volunteered their time and expertise to demonstrate the highlights of each career along with the skills needed to be successful.
Be sure to ask your child which one they found most interesting!
