It was a glimpse into a bright future for first-graders at Hiawatha Elementary School when they took the stage dressed in outfits signifying careers they aspire to have in the future.
Representing a vast number of professions, each first-grade student delivered a brief presentation to the crowd about the job they wish to have in the future. The careers chosen by the students included baseball players, construction workers, chefs, detectives, doctors, police officers, nurses, teachers and veterinarians.
The event served as an engaging activity that coincided with the first-grade unit on careers. As part of the unit, students created their first résumé and researched the different careers that interested them.
