Victory Elementary Career Day
Victory Elementary will be hosting Career Day on Friday, March 20, 2020 between the hours of 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
The purpose of Career Day is to expose students to a variety of careers in order to jumpstart their thinking about the future. It is designed to encourage children to expand their horizons and deepen their learning passions.
Students in grades Kindergarten through 6 will participate in Career Day. However, we can’t do it without you! We need volunteers to speak for 15 minute sessions in classrooms. Our goal is to have at least 2-3 parents and/ or community members to speak in each class.
If you, a family member, or friend are interested in volunteering to speak about a career, please complete the online registration form by Friday, January 31, 2020. The form is found on our school’s website:
Are you right for the “job”?
Of course! We want to have a wide variety of careers represented— trade professionals, small business owners, office workers, politicians, STEM careers— whatever you do, the children are eager to learn more about your profession.
Do I have to be there the whole time?
You do not have to speak the entire time. Each guest will only need to talk for about 15 minutes per session. You can sign up for as many sessions as you would like.
May I decide which class I volunteer?
We will do our best to accommodate specific requests from speakers. The online registration form provides a place to list a specific teacher or grade level. The “Put Me Anywhere” is available for anyone with a flexible time frame.
I’m not sure what I’d say?
A set of prompt questions, as well as a short video and list of tips and tricks to a successful Career Day will be found at the end of the registration. The information will also be provided again when we confirm your final times and classroom assignments.
What if I have questions?
