• We are in the process of planning our Annual Career Day at Highland Middle School. It will take place sometime in May from 8:30-Noon. I would like to invite anyone involved in your business or career field to come and share his or her area of expertise. Our goal is to expose our students to a variety of careers requiring differing levels of education. We would like our students to learn about a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional careers.


    The plan is to run two separate career days. The first will be a more traditional career day for our 7th and 8th graders. Each speaker will be assigned to a room and the students will rotate through the rooms. Speakers will give approximately six presentations lasting 15 minutes each.


    The career day for 6th graders is outside. We are looking for careers that involve a variety of vehicles from cars, trucks, to even helicopters. We are also looking for outdoor/hands on careers. These speakers will be located outside with their vehicles or activities and the students will rotate from station to station.


    We strive to make this an experience that is memorable and meaningful for the students and speakers alike. All those interested can contact me at Highland Middle School via email: awest@ems-isd.net or phone 817-847-5143 ext. 5208.


    Thank you for considering volunteering your time to influence the futures of our middle school students.
