Call for presenters at Annual MMS College & Career Day, May 19

We are beginning to plan for our annual College and Career day at Manor Middle School and we need your help! We want to acquaint our students with the “working world” of our community, state, and nation. We want our students to know how workers use the subjects they learn at school in their careers. Students will have the opportunity to learn about specific occupations and the importance of the subjects they study in school.

With your help, we can provide students with new ideas and interests that enhance our classroom activities. We are asking people from the community to visit our classrooms and discuss their occupations and roles in the world of work.

We would like to invite you to participate in our annual College and Career day at Manor Middle School. We want to give you plenty of notice before your busy calendar fills up. Please let us know if you are interested and available for this exciting event!

The following information will give you a basic outline of what to expect and how to prepare for the day.

Potential Presenters:

Please plan for 30 min. presentations that include time for Q & A. We welcome presenters to attend the entire day but this is not a requirement. Presenters who are not able to stay for both sessions need to attend either the morning or afternoon session. Suggestions for appropriate presentations for middle school students will be provided upon confirmation of your attendance. Students rotate into the different classrooms where the presenters have their things set up. For this age, props or visual aids work well, whether that be in the form of power points, pictures, actual items, etc. A bit closer to May 19, We will have further information about how many students to expect in each session as well as parking information. If you need access to any audiovisual equipment, please inform us in advance so we can make sure we assign you to a room that has the needed equipment. Most of our classrooms have ceiling-mounted projectors that are hooked up to the classroom computer. If you have a presentation on your laptop, it works best if you can put that presentation on a USB drive that can be inserted into the classroom computer. Although, if that is not possible we have been successful with having our IT department make other arrangements. 

Please let us know if you would like to participate so we can secure a spot for you on our presenter list. If you would like to participate, please confirm and complete the follow form electronically:
