Students in grades K-5 participated in Career Day Friday, March 1. To celebrate the day, students were encouraged to wear clothing representing their future or favorite careers. From teachers to doctors to bankers to contractors, the Lower School campus was filled with students dressed for a variety of dream jobs. During this event, students rotated in stations throughout the morning and heard from a multitude of presenters including a clinical laboratory scientist, a nurse, an art professor, a nurse practitioner, a fire chief and the owner of W.C. Newman Concrete Company. Among other hands-on activities, students were given the opportunity to use search and rescue equipment, look at bacteria specimens through microscopes and listen to each others heartbeats. Students were also able to see exactly how a concrete truck operates.
