This past Friday, September 28th, Circleville Elementary School held its second ‘Career Connection Friday’ series centered around post-graduation pathways and the ideals of ‘determination, desire, and drive’.
The event kicked off at student arrival as our Elementary Tigers were welcomed in to school by our high school student-athletes and the Circleville High School Marching Band playing an array of pep rally tunes. Student-athletes would then visit each classroom and discuss what their future career plans were after graduation and then would read a book to each classroom.
From there, classes headed south to the Circleville High School auditorium for an assembly with motivational speaker, singer, songwriter David Wells. David expanded on the themes of determination, desire, and drive through innovative means weaving in his talent for playing the trumpet and flugel horn with motivational videos.
The event was capped off at 1:30 p.m. with a pep rally in the Savings Bank Stadium where all 1,150 Circleville Elementary School students packed the new home stands for a pep rally surrounding college and career readiness. Classes displayed collegiate pennants, signs, and banners as students were again welcomed by the band and would hear from a variety of CCS administrators on what pathway led them to a career in education.
