The annual seventh and eighth grade career fair happened on Thursday, February 4. Students had approximately thirty career presentations to attend. A sampling of the careers represented were: law enforcement and firefighting, US military, technology, physician, fashion design, music, photography, and pilot. Students were able to visit three careers of their choice. Eleven of the presenters were new to CEMS and the career fair, and we also saw the return of some wily veteran presenters. This is a great community effort spearheaded by Gail Schmader, the district volunteer coordinator; Kim Sturgeon and Gretchen McCloy, middle school guidance counselors; and our fantastic MSPA hostesses. Thanks to all for helping to make the event very powerful for our students. The career fair was followed up on Friday with Job Shadow Day for eighth graders, who visited such businesses as: Fairchild Semiconductor, Hannaford Distribution Center, LL Bean, Idexx, WMTW, and Rumery Boat Yard. Again, thank you to all our community partners for making this event so successful.
