On Wednesday, students at Madison Elementary School will celebrate Career Day. All students are encouraged to dress up in their favorite career outfit, such as firefighter, teacher, military, cook, construction worker, doctor, musician, pilot, or farmer. Regular school day morning classes and subjects will be replaced with Junior Achievement (JA) lessons that relate to work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.
Age-appropriate JA lessons will be taught to Madison students as part of the Career Day activities by the following teachers:
- JA lesson for grade 3 in Stacie Moffitt’s classroom will be from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.
- JA lesson for grade 2 in Erika Steenerson’s classroom will be from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.
Madison has been holding this event for more than thirteen years.
Junior Achievement Worldwide is a partnership between the business community, educators, and volunteers who are working together to inspire young people to reach their potential. JA’s hands-on, experiential programs teach the key concepts of work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.
