Lunch and Learn
On Friday, February 20th, SOMS launched its second year of Lunch and Learn. During our Lunch and Learn sessions, members of our parent community come in and speak to students about their field of work. The goals of the program are to begin building career awareness during the middle school years with our students, and to involve our families in the life of our school and the education of our students. The sessions are held during all three lunch periods. The two sessions this past Friday were on journalism led by Mr. Lehren who shared information about his career as an Investigative Reporter with the New York Times, and an Investigative Producer with NBC News.; and on veterinary medicine, with Mr. Martin who explained how one becomes a veterinarian, and what the different career paths are for one who obtains a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.
