Sunnyside Elementary Job Fair

Sunnyside Elementary Job Fair

Posted: Updated:

"What do you want to be when you grow up," Is a question kids get asked all the time.

This week, Sunnyside Elementary School got its students to think about their future, starting at an early age.

 

The first ever Job Fair at Sunnyside was held Thursday at the school.

Community members with a wide range of different jobs came to talk to the kids about career options.

Students anywhere from wanting to be a policeman to being an artist got to explore their interests.

 

(Shawna Vanskiver, Sunnyside Counselor) "We think that its important for students, even at the elementary level, to start thinking about their future, start realizing that there are opportunities available."

 

Sunnyside teachers have been tying together having good character with working hard to meet future goals.

Kids as young as third and fourth grade were enthusiastic about going to college and getting a job.

 

"I learned about people's jobs and how fun they were."

"Even if you don't have money you can still go to college because you can get student loans."

"Today was really fun we got to learn about new jobs, we got to learn about what they did."

"On how to be a good character and see what job best fits you."

 

With the amount of success the job fair brought the school, Sunnyside teachers plan to make it an annual event.
