The third, fourth and fifth grade students spent time with the presenters, learning about a wide variety of occupations.  Each presenter shared details about his or her job, or other jobs available in their industry.  Children learned about the type of education needed to work in certain fields and were given the opportunity to ask questions.

Children in the lower grades visited local businesses, including local banks and the Acme Supermarket, to see how the businesses operate.

Career Day is held at the school every two years.  It is organized by Principal Shirley Bergin and a team of teachers.  A luncheon for the presenters is provided by the PTA.
