Centreville se­cond-graders par­tic­i­pate in Ca­reer Day

Record Observer - - School -

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.
