Students learn about work on Vehicle Day

Doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, firefighters, businessmen, journalists, even the President of the United States. These were but a few of the costumes worn by students at the Marr Cook Elementary during the Goshen school’s career week held April 28-May 2.

All week the students learned about different career choices and were taught character education lessons; the career week culminated with what the school called vehicle day.

“Vehicle day is when we invite companies to bring vehicles to show the students,” said second grade teacher Lisa Burns. “We have a CAT mechanics truck coming, concrete trucks, fire trucks, ambulances, police officer cruisers, and many more.”

Burns said that the vehicle day was designed to give the students hands-on experience with professional vehicles because it shows kids that sometimes vehicles are pertinent to someone’s profession or career.
