This year all of our Northshore School District Middle Schools will have a virtual Career Day together! In order to make this happen, many volunteer speakers are needed.
Career Day Information
The NSD Middle School PTSAs, along with the Northshore Schools Foundation, have joined forces to make sure our students can participate in an online Career Day. This year’s online program will take place on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
Career Day offers NSD middle school students insight into many different career fields. It gives our students an opportunity to learn what is needed to be successful in different fields/industries. We want our students to understand that no career path is ever a straight line and within any career there are lots of different avenues they can follow.
We are looking for Presenters from ALL career fields and paths, including professional, trade, service industry, stay at home parents – you name it, we welcome it! More importantly, our past surveys show that students are eager hear about every type of job, not just those in the STEM fields.

In addition, Northshore School District (NSD), in partnership with Northshore Council PTSA E-Prep chairs, is offering a one-time bulk purchase of Stop the Bleed Kits to all PTAs/PTSAs. Each local PTA/PTSA can grant funds to their school by March 30th so that NSD can place orders for kits by April 30th. The E-Prep Committee is also requesting staff at each school attend a 1-hour A.C.T. Save a Life Training.
