PTA Career Day

Crescent Career Day brings professionals from our community to our school to introduce the many things you can be when you grow up!  Kids LOVE having a day of interesting rotations through their top interests!  Previous years have included everything from Dog Trainer, Dentist, and Professional Sports Trainer, to Lawyer, Chef and, of course, First Responders!  Parents and Grandparents who wish to share their passions are absolutely welcome!!!





The PTA and teachers of Crescent Elementary invite you to be a Career Day presenter on Friday, June 7.  Throughout the day, approximately 500 students will have the opportunity to listen and learn from you and other Career Day presenters.  Join us and share your exciting career with our 3rd – 6th grade students! 

We anticipate approximately 35 student attendees per session.  Below are some suggestions for presentation content.  Students love to ask questions so please be sure to leave some time for Q&A at the end of your session.

  • Why you chose your career
  • Education or training needed for your career
  • Daily tasks – “A Day in the Life”
  • Unusual experiences
  • How math, reading, or writing skills are used in your career
  • What you like best and least about your career

Students really enjoy interactive presentations.  They also love “goodies” to take home.  Feel free to share your business brochure or other related material with students, too.

There are five 35-minute sessions to choose from.  Pick a single session or spend the day with us.
