6/1 – 6/5: B.E. Career Week

June 1 – 5th, 2020
We are looking for more parents to showcase what they do during our career week!  BE Career Day will look a little different this year, but we are very excited to still move forward! 

Who: We need you! We are asking for parent/guardian volunteers to create a 2-5 minute video discussing your careers! 

What: In your video we encourage you to show artifacts, dress in your work apparel, and share a little about what you do every day and why you chose your career. 

Where: Teachers will present your Career Day videos in their zoom class meetings. All grades will have access to all videos and will select the ones that work for their students.

Why: We love Career Day! We want to continue this special event through distance learning for our students 

When: Career Week 2020 will be the first week of June (June 1st-June 5th). All videos are due to Ms. Fried by Tuesday, May 26th. 

Please contact Ms. Fried if you are interested in participating in our BE Career Week 2020. Thank you!
