Relay Elementary students become college- and career-ready


Look out, college admissions officers and job recruiters!

Relay Elementary School hosted its fifth Annual Career Day for all Grade 4 and 5 students. Students spent the afternoon rotating through 14 career sessions highlighting jobs from the fields of community assistance, government, marketing, medicine and more. Session presenters were Relay Elementary parents with interesting and unique jobs in the featured career fields.

Angela Anderson, an employee for the United States Bureau of Printing and Engraving, was a student favorite. During her dynamic and informative presentation, she emphasized math and reading skills that she learned in elementary school and the application of those skills in her current position. The students loved decoding paper currency serial numbers and enjoyed receiving their own shredded money!

Another favorite presenter was Rob Carter, district sales manager for Finish Line. He discussed the importance of attending a two-year college or a four-year university, underscoring the vast number of opportunities available to students who hold an associate or a bachelor's degree.

As the students progressed through the sessions, they completed Career Booklets, noting the education and skills necessary for each of the career options.

At Relay Elementary, it's never too early to be college- and career-ready!
