Munsey Park Hosts Career Day With Sixth Graders

Sixth-graders received swag bags from Nickelodeon Events Director Colleen McGowan following her presentation during Career Day.

Munsey Park Elementary School sixth-graders in the Manhasset Public School District received a special visit from a variety of guest speakers to learn about their profession as part of the school’s annual Career Day program.

Leading up to the celebratory day, school counselor Amanda Gimondo encouraged students to fill out The Career Game Explorer questionnaire identifying skills, interests and activities they enjoy doing. Based on their answers to the questions, students could see which careers would best suit them and attend the presentation that they’d like to pursue.

On Career Day, professionals across several different fields, including medicine, animal care, writing, real estate, engineering, entertainment and law enforcement spoke to sixth-graders about their respective careers and the education and training required to be successful. Students asked questions of the visitors, and were encouraged to continue working hard and maximizing their potential.

Special thank-you to Ms. Gimondo for organizing the program, inviting guest speakers and helping children explore different career opportunities.
