Career Day

Career Day is one of the unique programs offered by the counseling department at Quibbletown Middle School.  Career Day is an annual school-wide event that helps our students explore possible future careers.  Over 60 members of the community participate in this program including parents, local business members, entrepreneurs, students from local colleges and universities, and family and friends of staff members.  Throughout the day, students rotate through a series of speakers.  The speakers provide students with real world information about their professional experiences, including job requirements and the level of education necessary to be successful in their profession.  Students develop an awareness of the global skills they will need in their future society.
