Exploring next steps!
Blazers, ties, and button-downs at the ready! Our Middle School students enjoyed the 2020 Career Day, when ASP welcomed over a dozen members of our wider community to campus to share their careers and life experience with our students.
This event is an essential offering for our Middle School students to allow them to consider how their interests can become full-fledged careers and to think about different educational paths they may have never considered.
ASP welcomed numerous professionals: a photojournalist, a social worker, an international educator, a soldier, a software manager, a policy advisor, a diplomat, an aviation specialist, a software engineer, a research technician, a Disney technology specialist, an export salesman, a human resource manager, a scientist, and an energy expert.
The Career Day kicked off with a keynote message from Gabriella I-F, a Grade 6 student, and Betty Trummel, an international educator. Gabriella shared her hopes for the day, and encouraged her fellow students to enjoy the feeling of exploring new possibilities.
She hoped that she and her fellow students would come away from the day feeling inspired to try new things, to explore different paths, and to hear ideas for their future that they may not have considered.
As the students rotated between their first, second, and third sections, the halls were filled with questions and exclamations about the presenters. Thank you to all of the parents, community members, faculty, and staff who helped make this amazing experience possible for our students!
