Students dressed as firemen, doctors and nurses, veterinarians, athletes and more entered Verne W. Critz Elementary School doors on January 28 ready to explore their future careers. For the second consecutive year, the students received a close up look at a multitude of professions held by members of the South Country Central School District community during annual Career Day.
Elementary guidance counselor Darlene Dowler reported that Verne W. Critz’s initial Career Day was so impressive and successful last year, that each of the elementary-level schools will host its own career day this school year. She reported that prior to the event, teachers spoke with the students about various careers and  future job aspirations. The teachers also prepared the students with questions to ask the presenters.  
“By extending Career Day to each of the elementary schools, all of our students will be exposed to various opportunities available to them as they get older,” Ms. Dowler said. 

Throughout the day, the volunteer presenters visited classrooms where they spoke to the students about being a chef, fireman, financial planner, chemistry teacher, personal trainer, artist and more. Not only did Career Day assist students in setting goals for themselves, it provided the perfect opportunity for them to discuss their career aspirations with peers and faculty and to set personal goals for fulfilling those aspirations.

As a culminating activity, the students wrote thank-you cards to the presenters for their time and efforts in teaching them about possible career choices.
