The Oysterponds elementary school in Orient is holding a Career Day tomorrow morning to help students prepare for the future.

Principal Francoise Wittenburg said the school partnered with the Oysterponds Historical Society to create the new program in an effort to comply with the state’s new core curriculum standards.

“We’re so grateful [the historical society is] helping us meet the new standards while engaging activities with our local community,” she said.

Ms. Wittenburg said the program will help students to become college and career ready by the time they graduate. There will be guest speakers discussing different careers, including farming, town government and development. In addition, there will be 12 station areas with other occupational information.

The event is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the elementary school. Parents and residents are welcome to attend. For more information, call (631) 323-2410.
