MS Career Day: You Can Inspire Young Minds!

“You get to see people who followed their dreams and actually achieved them.” - MS Student


Would you like to help inspire young minds? Are you or someone you know willing to share your career choice with our middle school students? If so, please sign up (or encourage your friend to sign up!) to give a Career Day presentation!


Career Day will be Tuesday, February 20th from 12:15 – 3:20pm. Presenters will spend approximately 25 minutes with a small group of middle school students each session. There will be approximately four sessions throughout the afternoon.


Middle School students learn best with hands on experiences so any tools of the trade or simulations of work-related tasks are greatly appreciated.


Please help us make the MS Career Day a success. Just complete this form and more information will be sent to you.


If you have any questions or any difficulties completing the form, please contact Eileen Knobloch at Eileenk@faculty.isd.sn.


What did previous Middle School parent speakers think of career day? Here they are in their own words:

“I had a blast, and found the students' questions thoughtful and the students engaged and polite. “
“Thanks so much for the opportunity! That was super fun and some (students) had great questions. “
“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to talk about our jobs to the middle school students.
"They were such an engaged and interested bunch of children.“

And some quotes from students, too:

“You learn about lots of jobs and it’s fun.”
“You get to see people who followed their dreams and actually achieved them.”
“With some of them (presentations) you got to do hands on activities!”
“You get to think about what you want to do (while) learning about other’s jobs.”
