Kids at Work Day

Posted by Samantha Eck on 4/4/2018 11:00:00 AM

Hempfield School District is excited to promote career exploration and awareness district-wide with our elementary students!  On Friday, April 13, 2018 all elementary students are encouraged to wear clothing that represents a career that they are interested in exploring as an adult. For example, your child may come dressed as a firefighter, a veterinarian, a teacher, etc. Clothing should be appropriate for a day of learning and not distract other students in his/her classroom. As an added component to Kids at Work Day, teachers and staff will be wearing their college, military, trade school, or past/present career attire.

Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will be a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.  

At Hempfield High School about 63% of our students enroll in a four-year college. 11% enroll in a two-year college. About 3% of our students go directly into the military, and about three percent go on to a one-year certificate or training programs. 10% go directly into the workforce. About 13% attend the CTC each year to gain a year of Technical Education during their senior year of high school to study fields.

The Hempfield Elementary School Counselors would like to thank you in advance for your support for Kids at Work Day. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s counselor.

Sincerely,
Hempfield Elementary Counselors
