  • Annual Career Day

    On May 12 we were excited to bring back our annual Career Day.  Many parents and friends volunteered their time to come in and speak with our students.  3K-Grade 4 were assigned presenters and our 5th graders were able to choose presenters from the list.  The day was fun for all! This experience gave our students an opportunity to hear about different careers.  Our students asked many questions to the presenters.  The sky is the limit and our students will soar in their future endeavors!!
