WANTED Career Presenters!

Southside Elementary will begin hosting Career Cafes for students in grades 4 and 5. What is a Career Cafe? Well, they offer the chance for students to meet workers from a wide range of careers. They happen during the 4th and 5th grade lunch period from 12:30-1. Anyone is welcome to come a talk with the students. I can provide the use of a SMART Board if you would like to show a video or pictures. Our goal is to expose our students to as many career options as possible to help broaden their career awareness! If you would like to present please e-mail Ms. Lawson at


VA Career Zone is an interactive career focused website. It navigates K-5 students through various careers and career clusters. A highlight of this website is Career Town, where students can play games while learning about specific skills, abilities and tools that people need for their jobs. Browse the website, take a quick career assessment and start looking at all of potential careers!
