Career Day

On Friday, February 19, students came dressed in a variety of outfits, often bringing many props to demonstrate the work that they do.  Many occupations were represented by the students' choices.  Popular picks include firefighters, police officers, entertainers, teachers, and athletes.  Classroom teachers have the students talk about their careers and why they chose them.  By the end of the day, teachers and classmates have a better understanding of each other with students experiencing a fun day at school.


Check out the SWE Photo Gallery to see all of the Career Day pictures.
