Hehnly School Hosts Career Day
Kids learned from different presenters, including Patch, and wrote this story!
On Thursday, April 19, Hehnly School in Clark hosted Career Day.
"Students learned what adults do for a living," said fourth-grader Alyssa Pittari.
Students learned about different careers from presenters like a vet, a court reporter, a food broker, a physical therapist, a veterinarian, a major league soccer player, a medical device account manager, director of community relations for the Somserset Patriots, an attorney, a credit manager, a construction project manager, an optometrist, a dietician - and a Patch editor!
During our session, students helped Patch editor Jessica Remo write this story that you're reading right now.
Here are some quotes from students that our student-reporters collected:
"I think that career day is a great opportunity for students to get a better understanding of different jobs," said third-grader Alexa Velotti. "When I grow up, I want to be an editor for a magazine or a website just like Jessica. I write stories at home."
"I like that you get to hear about different careers and so then when you grow up you know about lots of choices," said fifth-grader Valerie Gonzalez.
"We got an idea of what we might want to do one day when we grow up," said fourth-grader Lily Gull.
"I was really excited to come to school and learn about the jobs and how much time and effort you need to put into them," said fifth-grader Briana Louro.
"I liked coming to this session because I like writing and I do a lot of that with my teacher Mrs. Venezio," said fifth-grader Gabby Stawinski.
