East Brook Career Day

 

Calling all East Brook Community Members…..

 

The PTO is working towards hosting a Career Fair this year at East Brook. A Career Fair is an excellent opportunity for students to explore different areas of employment through a variety of displays, demonstrations, brief presentations and hands on activities. It is also an excellent opportunity for YOU to be involved in your child’s/children’s education. In order to pursue the coordination of such an event, the PTO would need to secure participants.

 

Participating in an event like this would be a memorable experience for yourself and your child/children. You do not need to be currently working in the career you present. It may be a previous career, current, or one that the participant has retired from. Participation is not only limited to parents, but extended family and friends. We are looking for parents to participate, as well as, use connections/relationships you have with friends, family and community members to generate many exhibits. The time commitment would be minimal and the rewards immeasurable!

 

We envision using the multi purpose room to house the exhibits/presenters and classes will rotate in throughout the day. Our goal is for all grades, K-6, to be exposed to as many different careers as possible. Examples include, but are not limited to: firefighters, police officers, EMT/ambulance volunteers, librarians, teachers, doctors, dentists, mechanics, engineers, business employees, athletes, hair stylists, nail technicians, sanitation employees, scientists, pharmaceutical employees, electricians, plumbers, builders, architects, family CEO’s (stay at home parents), speech/language pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, cashiers, lawyers, etc.

 

Presenters will:

  • Be available for most of the school day
  • Prepare a career booth (i.e. poster, demonstration, hands on experience, samples, discussion/education, Power Point, etc.)
  • Be fed lunch!!!
  • Have an exciting day with the East Brook students!!!

 

If you are interested, we will be holding a meeting in the near future to finalize more specific details. For informational purposes, we ask that everyone complete this brief survey by clicking on the link below. Thank you!
