Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day – Wednesday, August 15
Puget Sound ESD will celebrate Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Wednesday, August 15. PSESD invites you to bring your child(ren) and/or young relatives to this event. The children and/or students will be participating in interactive learning activities, which will guide and develop them toward a future where they can participate fully in work, family, and community. It also provides students/children with an opportunity to share how they envision the future and encourages them to begin steps toward their goals. Activities will be geared toward students/children in grades pre-K through grade 12.
This year’s theme is Power of Change. Join us in showing our future workforce that being part of a workplace team includes adaptation in response to change, and positive change makes the whole team better. Let’s get our super heroes excited about being part of the workforce and show them how they can impact others and make a positive change in people’s lives every day.
