American Education Week is celebrated nationwide Nov. 16 through Nov. 20. In Carlsbad Municipal Schools, the following events are scheduled for the week.
Hillcrest Elementary School
The students at Hillcrest Preschool will discuss what they want to be when they grow up. Each student will have a child outline to decorate what they want to be when they grow up to be done at home and then share with their class.
To honor the parents of our students for their commitment to their child’s education, we will thank them during their child’s google meet, and have their child do the same. Education Support Professionals, teachers, and substitutes will also be acknowledged for their contribution to education through our school’s Facebook page. Teachers will be talking with students about the many different jobs they could have when they grow up if they stay committed to their education. Students will be decorating a little person as what they want to be when they grow up, and will share that with their classmates in class or online.
