Career Day Provided Students a Glimpse into Future Career Paths!
This year, James Monroe School hosted a career day in which members of the community are invited to educate our students about their professions and the paths they pursued in order to achieve their goals. This year it was held on Friday, June 7th, and it was a huge success! Students in grades 2 - 5 completed interest surveys and were able to select 2 sessions of their choice. Nurses, police officers, engineers, veterinarian, make-up artist and many more professionals from a variety of fields talked to our students about their jobs, goal setting and the importance of working hard to achieve their dreams. The day gives students the opportunity to explore possible career paths and provide insight into the specific requirements, daily responsibilities, and extraordinary experiences associated with each career. Thank you to all who presented!
