Career Day successful at OHE

Oct. 24, 2012 — The editor:

    Visions of the future abounded at Olive Hill Elementary on Thursday, Oct. 18. Students celebrated Career Day by dressing up to represent the career that they would like to have when they are grown. Some teachers also dressed up to show a career that they had considered along with education. The Olive Hill Elementary Counselors planned for special guest speakers to visit classrooms and talk to students about their chosen career. Classroom teachers planned other activities focusing on career awareness to be conducted during the day. Elementary counselors across the district work with students to increase awareness of careers, introduce students to Kentucky’s 14 Career Clusters, and make linkages between education and future success. Leading up to Career Day at Olive Hill, students also were learning about good worker habits (attendance, cooperation, punctuality, etc.) and the reasons why people work (to provide for basic needs, for self-satisfaction, and enjoyment). Counselors also posted Family Career Exploration Activities in the front lobby. Students and families who complete those activities and bring documentation to the counselors will be recognized with a certificate at our next Bracelet Celebration.

    Honored guests at Career Day included: Regina Thompson, Amber O’Neal, Lee Ann O’Bryan, Patricia Eldridge, Leslie Watts, Ashley Hollingsworth, and Dr. Shilpan Patel from St. Claire Regional; Nellie Jordan, Carter County Public Library; R.D. Porter, Olive Hill Police Department; Brent Tackett and Joe Moreland, AEP; Dr. Dolf Fischer, HealthSource; Sam Chernick and Hope Scott, Dr. Wheatley Orthodontics; Brenda Wilson, Commercial Bank; Sam Plummer, Carter Caves State Park; Nathan Hall, Kentucky Division of Forestry; Ronnie Easterling and Cheryl Price, Easterling Photography; Angie Richards and Kristie Richmond, Angie’s Hair Palace; Tim Carper, GO Radio; Steve Stubbs, Carter County Career and Technical Center; Michelle Wilhoit, First National Bank; Olive Hill Fire Department, Carter County Ambulance Service and Stacy Sturgill, Carter County Schools.

    The counselors, staff and students of Olive Hill extend a huge “Thank You” to our speakers, parent volunteers who helped, and our Family Resource Center staff who provided breakfast for our guests.

  • Students may be disappointed by change in prize

    I am writing you today concerning Carter Elementary PTO. I have a daughter who has perfect attendance this year. She has gone all year thinking if she had perfect attendance she would be getting the $100 prize like they gave out last year.
