Igniting A Passion for Learning
East Lee Middle School
With a district-wide push towards helping create college and career ready students, the counselors at East Lee hosted Career Day on Friday, February 28th. 6th and 7th grade students were exposed to an array of career fields as volunteers rotated through their classes sharing the ins-and-outs of their careers. 8th graders took part in a Career Fair where they had the opportunity to approach representatives from the career fields that sparked their personal interests. It was a joy to pop in and out of classes and see students engaged, excited and asking questions to further their knowledge of the different careers. Follow-up surveys completed by students, staff and the Career Day speakers provide strong evidence of a worthwhile, engaging and enjoyable event for all.
