Elementary School Looking for Professionals To Teach Students About Career Options


by Michelle Mortimer

Joyce Kilmer Elementary School will host Career Day on April 12.

They are looking for professionals in a variety of fields to talk to students in grades six through eight about their jobs.

Volunteers can participate in a variety of ways:

  • speak alone or with a partner
  • run an activity related to the career

They are also searching for general volunteers to help recruit professionals and ensure everything runs smoothly.

The school hopes that volunteers can stay the whole day (9:10am – 2:11pm) but will accept anyone who has free time.

The day consists of four sessions:

● Session 1: 9:10 – 10:10

● Session 2: 10:13 – 11:13

● Session 3: 11:16 – 12:16

● Session 4: 1:11 – 2:11

Interested volunteers can sign up through Joyce Kilmer’s Google Form, or email Jennifer Foss at jafoss@cps.edu with any questions. J
