Eisenhower Career Day
Students at Eisenhower Elementary learned about amazing and exciting careers last week during Career Day which featured visitors and guest speakers from a variety of career fields that included animal care, law enforcement, fire and rescue, maintenance, and more. The students were able to hear from the guest speakers about their career journeys and what do each day. They were also able to see tools used in various trades and some students even gained hands on experience with them! #GGUSDPride
