Maine Elementary annual career day

TOWN OF MAINE (WAOW) -- Area elementary students take a break from their day jobs to learn about life after school.

Thursday was Maine Elementary's annual career day.

3rd, 4th and 5th graders got to ask area professionals all about their jobs, likes and dislikes.

School leaders say the students love it because they get to learn from all different kinds of people in the community.

5th Grade Teacher Lynn Evy says, "Usually presenters tell them how important this is to pay attention in school, to listen, to learn science and math and all kinds of skills they can use in a job and that helps them understand how important school is and what they need to do to prepare for what they'd like to do when they're grown up."

This is the sixth annual career day. School leaders say they plan on continuing the tradition in years to come because it's a great partnership between the school and community.
