Centreville second-graders participate in Career Day
CENTREVILLE — Career Day was held on Oct. 19 for the aspiring generation of second-graders at Centreville Elementary. Organized by the second-grade team of teachers, all of the presenters were parents of students, according to teacher Karey Anne Coppage.
Students were able to learn a little bit about several different career choices including law enforcement, the medical field, farming, construction and remodeling, sales and environmental health.
The students had an opportunity to get hands on with tools of the trade from law enforcement, trying on vests and handcuffs, and perhaps most exciting — got an up close look at the Maryland State Police helicopter when it landed next to the school, Coppage said.
