Career Day

Dear Parents and Community Members,

 

Our Annual Career Exploration Day at OIS is on Friday, March 6, 2020, and we need YOUR experiences! We are looking for a variety of people interested in spending a day talking to our students about their career. Many of our students are unaware of the vast career opportunities and this is a great way to provide them with first-hand knowledge of potential career paths.

 

Volunteers will host three 30 minute sessions in the afternoon beginning around 1:00 pm and ending around 2:40 pm. This experience connects our community and the students enjoy hearing the presentations. If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this awesome experience, please use click here or visit https://forms.gle/w92Xawm2dgKJt3d66 to complete the form. All information is due by Friday, February 14, 2020. We look forward to seeing you!
