Career Exploration Day

On Friday, April 29, 2022 Cooper Academy hosted a Career Exploration Day for students in 3rd-5th grades.  As students visited each career exploration station they collected data about the occupation details, the education or training required, the salary, and the flexibility of the work schedule for each profession.  The event was supported by our community having representation from Johnston County Emergency Services, the Clayton Fire Department, Pace Family Farms, the Army National Guard, and parents from our school representing a variety of career fields.  Our school would like to thank all of our volunteers who gave their valuable time to present, entertain, and teach the students at Cooper Academy.  This was a culmination event for students who have been exploring their individual strengths and career interests in the Xello online learning platform.  If interested in joining our Career Exploration Event in April 2023 please contact Mr. Garfield Martin at garfieldmartin@johnston.k12.nc.us so we can start building our list of presenters.
