Volunteers Needed For Career Day 2019!!

Dear Parents and Other Members of the P.S. 161Q Community:

We would like to invite you to be part of what has become an important school tradition. Participating in P.S. 161’s Career Day is a great opportunity to contribute in a positive and meaningful way to our school community. Last year’s event was a great success, and we would like to increase our participation this year. The P.S. 161Q Student Council is planning the event to take place on Friday, May 24th. The students and staff are eagerly awaiting this event, which will be an opportunity to share the talents, professionalism, and generosity of our entire school community.

The Student Council, along with Ms. Hoder, Ms. Freed and Ms. Bennett, would like to invite anyone with a “career” to speak with the students; to share how, when, and why they chose that career, and offer any insights to the students about what the day-to-day duties of that career entail. You may also choose to share the education and career path that led to your current position. ALL CAREERS AND VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME! This is a chance for you to give back to your community and instill a sense of pride in the children for all work that contributes positively to our world. Your career may be one of the following: nurse, nurse’s aide, volunteer, policeman, construction worker, postal worker, engineer, hair stylist, cashier, landscaper, accountant, housekeeper, salesperson, factory worker, physical therapist, attorney, teacher, doctor, airline steward/stewardess, mechanic, business manager, artist/illustrator/designer, fireman, architect, real estate broker, bookkeeper, grocer, banker…the list goes on and on. All work is honored at our school.

Our May 24th Career Day classroom visits will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We will meet in the 4th floor Library, no later than 8:15 a.m., to share breakfast, and to distribute schedules. Please try to be here promptly at 8:15 a.m., so we may begin our Career Day according to schedule, and ensure a smooth, safe, and enriching event for everyone.

Please fill out the form below, indicating whether you will be able to attend. If you cannot stay for the full program, indicate what time you are available. Once we have compiled all of the volunteer forms, we will make a schedule whereby all of the students in our school have the chance to learn about more than one career. The deadline to return this form will be Thursday April 18th. If you would like to participate, please be sure to return this form as soon as possible. We are looking forward to meeting with our community members and learning about all that you do to “make things work” in our society!


Ms. Hoder
