Manchester School District Seeking Industry Representatives for Career Day at Parkside Middle School

Collaborating with the Manchester School District and aligning training programs to meet the workforce needs of Manchester area businesses is a strategic goal of our Chamber. To better connect our Member Businesses with the Manchester School District, we would like to share an exciting opportunity:

On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, Parkside Middle School will be hosting a school-wide Career Day to provide students the opportunity to gain knowledge about careers, and awareness of the responsibilities and expectations in the world of work. Presenters are asked to give a demonstration, present a slideshow or discuss what they do, how they obtained that position and take questions from students. This is an opportunity for the students to become informed of different career paths, as well as inspire them to set goals for themselves as they move forward in school.

Presenters will be assigned a classroom and several teachers will supervise. Individuals will present to 3 groups of students, for about 30 minutes for each group as the students rotate through classrooms.

Some examples of industry representatives in attendance!

  • Doctors
  • Attorneys
  • Jewelers
  • Firemen
  • Police Officers
  • Teachers
  • EMT’s
  • & More!

If this is something you and your company would be interested in, please email Jennifer Harrises at jharrises@mansd.org

We encourage you to consider building a relationship with the Manchester School District, its teachers and its students by sharing your story at Parkside Middle School’s Career Day!
