As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, the Penn Manor elementary schools planned a special day across the district.
On Friday, February 23, 2018 students were invited to wear clothing that represented careers that they may be interested in exploring as an adult.
Our hope is that Kids at Work Day was a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.

Happy National School Counselors Week to all. This is our opportunity to advocate for school counseling and the important role our counselors play in helping students and their families.
On Friday, former First Lady Michelle Obama helped kick things off by delivering the keynote speech at the School Counselor of the Year celebration at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., where Chicago school counselor Kirsten Perry was honored. Obama told the school counselors that your “work is even more urgent and critically important at this moment in time.”
Gov. Tom Wolf has signed a proclamation declaring Feb. 5-9 School Counseling Week in Pennsylvania. In it, the governor states: “I encourage all citizens to support the efforts of school counselors in the development of our nation’s future leaders, our children.” Please share it with your school community.
Be sure to visit the American School Counselor Association’s website for ideas and free materials to help you celebrate National School Counselors Week in your school and community.
