Upland Heights Elementary Hosts Career Day

Career Day at Upland Heights Elementary is one of the most anticipated events of the year that every student participates in. Presenters from all diffident occupations come in and give 50-minute presentations to groups of students.  

Students in each grade level choose one presentation to attend during their time slot. The presentations take place all over the campus to accommodate over 15 different presenters and provide space for the various hands-on activities they brought with them.  

One of Upland Heights’ improvement goals is to educate the students on college and career readiness.  Career Day allows students to see and hear from a variety of community and business members where they share their professional experience, career information, and college experience. The goal is to develop academically equipped, effective communicators, responsible citizens, and passionate learners at Upland Heights and this experience pushes student to become that.  

“It was a great day” said Denise Stewart, principal at Upland Heights. “Alot of the presenters gave compliments about the questions they were asked by students and the participation from students.”
