Leaders are Readers at SMS

A man speaking to a classIn March, all middle school students in grades 5 – 8 participated in a “Community Leaders Are Readers” event. The students heard how reading and writing are immersed in all careers. Community professionals shared about their jobs, and even brought along some of the equipment they use.

Upon arrival, the professionals enjoyed breakfast which was prepared by our middle school Chef’s Club.

The students were fortunate to hear from a nurse, land surveyor, financial planner, pharmacist, paramedic, travel representative from Southwest Airlines, Marine, pastor, contractor, police officers, nutritionist, fitness instructor, bus driver, broadcaster and author, chiropractor, owner of BurgerFi, town parks and grounds worker, state parks employee, and athletic director.

These professionals were gracious with their time and exemplified being true community partners with us at Schalmont. We would like to thank each of them for their time and commitment to the students at Schalmont.
