Career Day was a Success!

Career Day was a Success!

Career day was a lot of fun!  We heard many different career volunteers.  Grades K-2 heard from Richmond Firefighter, Henrico Police, Dog trainers, veterinarian, Richmond Ballet, plush toy makers, karate and gymnastics instructors.

Grades 3-5 heard from Jon Burkett, Channel 6 news reporter, dentist, animator, animal rescue league, scientist, real estate agent and Richmond Kickers Pro Soccer Player.  All grades were allowed to dress up as the job they would like to have when they group up…and everyone looked great!  I hope your child(ren) came home and shared with you all about career day.  Below are some pictures from our career day.
