P.S. 89Q hosted its 4th annual College & Career Week May 15th-19th.
During this week, students worked on activities related to their career passions, participated in a door-decorating competition with a Leader in You inspired theme, received a virtual college tour from our librarian, and witnessed their teachers wearing t-shirts from their alma mater with pride. Hallways were decorated with pictures of P.S.89 staff in their cap and gowns, pennants from colleges and universities, and pictures of celebrities and the universities they attended.
The week ended with lively presentations given by over 25 speakers from a variety of professions. Each 5th grade classroom had a multitude of these presenters share their experiences in regard to going to college, what interested them in pursuing their career, and a snap shot of a day-in-the life of their job. Our students heard from veterinarians, lawyers, musicians, physicists, tech sales associates, graduate students, railroad conductors, the army etc.
College & Career Week is an occasion that we hope our 5th grade students will always remember!
