Virtual Career Week Theme Dress

For Virtual Career Week (VCW) we are encouraging our students to participate in our dress up days, and challenge you to learn more about each industry. Each day has been given an industry. Be creative! Create DIY costumes with materials and things you have at home! Students can choose ANY career in the industry to dress up as or learn more about. Parents will have a opportunity to share student dress up photos under VCW posts on their school Face Book pages.

THURSDAY: Sports Field (athlete, personal trainer, radio/ television broadcaster, sports doctor) or Business Industry (banker, attorney, sales, business owner, marketing. . .think anything where you might have to dress business casual)
