Verne W. Critz Elementary School students dressed as firemen, nurses, veterinarians and athletes as part of the school’s Career Day.
 
Principal Mandy Mazziotti explained that Career Day is an opportunity for the students to set goals for themselves and to be exposed to various opportunities available to them as they get older.

Career Day commenced with an assembly with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Giani, who explained to the student body his job as a district superintendent. Speakers from local businesses also visited the classrooms and included chiropractor Dr. Joseph Merckling, Suffolk County police officer Eddie Gomez and K-9 partner Milo, paramedic Kristin Huck, Air Force Pararescue Captain Salvatore Sferrazza, merchandiser Melissa Wasylyshyn, physical therapist Amy Maragioglio, fireman Matthew Wilkinson, transportation specialist Joshua Warshaw, veterinarian Dr. Nicholas Martuccio, dentist and hygienist Dr. Matthew Kahn, and finance specialist Joanne Bennett.

The students not only had a fun day dressing up, but learned about various professions, thanks to the volunteers who made Career Day possible.
