We are planning ahead for our “Career Days” at Timber Ridge. The events will take place on Thursday, April 26 and Wednesday, May 2. Please let us know if you may be interested in presenting!
Our goal is to help students develop a greater awareness about career options and to understand how education connects to the world of work. In order to emphasize the importance of education, students are invited to wear their favorite school shirt on their career day (Timber Ridge, middle school, high school or college shirts). We will continue to meet state guidelines by matching our career speakers to the career clusters. Please look at the career clusters for each grade level listed on the back of this letter.
Thursday, April 26 – Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd: Each grade level will visit the “Careers on Wheels” speakers on the blacktop between 8:15-10:30 a.m. If you or someone you know has a special vehicle that helps with their job, please let us know. We have many community helpers that attend, but are always looking for new careers to feature with our primary students.
Wednesday, May 2 – 3rd, 4th & 5th: Each grade level will see the speakers in a rotation format. Speakers will deliver their presentation for 20 minutes in each class, so we are asking for a time commitment of 1.5 hours for each speaker. The presentations will take place between 8:15-11:30 a.m.
We will try our best to place everyone interested, so if you think you can join us, please complete the form below or email by March 9. Please send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for helping us with these educational events!
