Our community of working professionals have a knack each winter for bringing their “work to life” during our Celebrity Reader week. From architecture & landscaping to cosmetology & dentistry, our readers channel their enthusiasm by sharing visuals from their chosen profession and encouraging high educational aspirations.
This year over twenty different careers were represented by our team of professionals who visited 23 classrooms! The book Career Day is read aloud to students, reinforcing the importance of education beyond high school graduation.
Another smashing round of performances was delivered in February by our cast at our annual 4th grade play, The Wonderful Wizard of College! This presentation is the capstone event to our 4th grade curriculum, College & Money Savvy Wildcats.
The Works is the ideal backdrop for the day’s activities; students explore The Works’ art museum and discovery stations, and even help calculate costs for their own graduation party! This field trip is a treasure for students and teachers alike.
College, Careers and Cash! This 8th grade program allows us to go deeper in discussion about specific careers and related salaries. Using portions of the Ohio Means Jobs website, students take interest assessments and the results are used to introduce career clusters.
Students also explore post-high school educational pathways and the importance of developing skills that can translate into earning potential. This year we presented 3 C’s at Heritage and Wilson, and our Liberty lesson plans were delivered remotely through teachers due to our March school closures.
