“College and Career – It’s Elementary”, a showcase of employers and education opportunities for the K-5 crowd, will caravan throughout Grayson County Elementary schools in early 2013. The one-night-only event will give students and their parents the opportunity to spend time with local businesspeople, vocational, service and other professionals. They can explore what it’s really like to work in a variety of careers with the people who actually work in them. They can also get a head start on the types of training and education they will need as they learn now, how they can start planning for their own careers.
Demonstrations, information and fun activities to spur young imaginations will all be part of these events. And parents will be able to support, guide and work alongside their children, as together they explore the many opportunities that could one day be in their future.
Participating children, along with one attending parent, will receive a free pass to an upcoming Grayson County Cougar basketball game, where they and other participants from their school will be specially recognized during that game’s festivities.
“College and Career – It’s Elementary” will be held January 17 at Lawler, January 24 at Caneyville and January 28 at Wilkey, with Clarkson on February 7. For more information check with your child’s school or visit graysoncountyschools.com.
