BMS | Career Day

Brookwood 167

Dear Parents and/or Guardians:

Brookwood  Middle  School  Administration  and  Staff  is  excited  to   announce  our upcoming, 21st Annual Career Day!  The event will be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 and we need your help.  We are looking for community members, parents, and family members to talk to students about education requirements, special training, employment, and other experiences relative to their careers.  Our goal is to expose BMS students’ to a variety of career options while demonstrating how workers use the subjects they learn in school on their jobs. With your partnership we are committed to meet our goal!

Would you be willing to come to our classrooms and share information about your occupation?  Presenters will speak with students for three sessions, each expected to last approximately 25-minutes each.  Session 1 will be held one after the other, beginning at 9:50 A.M. and ending around 11:15 A.M. Session 2 will also be held one after the other, beginning at 12:30 P.M. and ending around 1:55 P.M. We ask that you plan to arrive by 9:15 A.M.  You may bring visuals, tools, and other items you use in your job every day.  We will provide a list of suggestions to help you plan your presentation.   A classroom teacher will remain in the classroom as well.

Please complete the enclosed  form and return it to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.  We hope you will participate in our Career Development Program. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Ms. Barber at (708) 758-5350 via email at jbarber@brookwood167.org.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Sincerely,

2015 Career Day Committee
