WEMS 6th-8th Grade Students Go Job Shadowing

WEMS Goes Job Shadowing
Posted on 03/02/2020
2020 Job Shadowing ParticipantsAs a part of career exploration, Monday, February 10, 2020 was set aside for sixth through eighth grade students at Wallace Elementary Middle School to participate in job shadowing. This program was established to provide students with the opportunity to experience first-hand their occupation of interest. During the 2018-2019 school year, the program was only offered to eighth grade students with seven students participating. This year, by extending the opportunity to sixth and seventh grade students as well, that number increased by over 600% with a total of fifty-three students participating. As a result, a total of 40 local businesses and organizations accommodated our students in addition to ten teachers at WEMS. Several students stated that their preceptors provided them not only with visual observance, but also with hands-on assistance opportunities.
