For the Star-News
LUXEMBURG – The Luxemburg-Casco School District held “Careers on Wheels” on May 18 in the bus lane of Luxemburg-Casco Intermediate School.
For career fair, geared toward those in grades 4K to sixth, gave students an early look at potential career paths they may consider once they reach the district’s upper grades.
“Our goal is for every student in grades 4K-6 to learn about the different career options available to them, particularly those they may not be familiar with,” said Luxemburg-Casco Intermediate School Counselor Danielle Garceau. “At this level, the primary emphasis when it comes to academic and career planning is for students to begin to understand the various careers and to start to think about what they find interesting.
“Students and teachers absolutely love this event, and we receive a tremendous amount of positive feedback. Our presenters also want to come back year after year because of the amazing turnout and the high level of interest from students.”
Twenty presenters shared information in 16 established career clusters, including: Agriculture-Food, Construction, Health Science, Human Services, Public Safety and Transportation-Logistics.
Participating businesses included Bellin Health, DeLeers Construction, Vlies Electric, Cabinet Creations & Design, Peters Concrete, Roland Machinery, S.D.A. Lawn Services, Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR), M&B Transit, 1330 Wraps, Salmon’s Meat Products, Baileys Harbor Fish Company, U.S. Army, Kewaunee County Sheriff, Luxemburg Fire Department, Luxemburg Emergency and Rescue Services, Wisconsin Public Service, NEW Water and L-C School Bus.
Classes rotated through the presenters in five-minute intervals.
