First graders at St. Thomas Aquinas recently celebrated Career Day! Each student researched a career in which he/she has interest, gathering information such as the education required, type of work involved, average salary as well as what interests him/her the most about the job.
Each student prepared and presented a report about his/her findings to the class. Students also enjoyed visits from many guest speakers in a variety of fields: doctors, accountants, a flight attendant, a nurse, graphics design artists, attorneys, artists, a teacher, a school administrator and a home builder, to name a few. The highlight for the students was dressing up in the attire of their career choice. St. Thomas Aquinas had veterinarians, SWAT officers, professional athletes, dancers, a make-up artist, a pilot, rock stars, and astronauts in school on Career Day 2014.
