Duncan Elementary students look to the future

Duncan Career

Recently, the sixth graders at Duncan participated in their second annual Career Day. 

This special event brought members of the community into the school to share their real-world expertise with our Duncan sixth graders. Careers in graphic design, dentistry, marketing, and more were represented. 

Each sixth grader was able to choose three sessions from the list of nearly 50 volunteers who were kind enough to share not only their careers, but also the path that lead them to their careers. 

With the Duncan sixth graders now officially halfway through their public education, this event, coupled with the recent Career Focus luncheon, will certainly play a large role in shaping the future of these young Explorers.
