Careers on Wheels

DJ Montague Students participated in Careers on Wheels, meeting a variety of community members and learning about career opportunities.

DJ Montague students had the pleasure of meeting a variety of community members  last Friday during our first ever “Careers on Wheels.” Students saw police officers, firefighters, the Book Mobile, a WJCC HVAC technician, a mobile pet groomer, animal control, retired military, WAVY TV 10, and more. Students asked questions and learned all about just a few of the available careers in our community. Thank you, Mr. Hill for a wonderful event, and thank you SO MUCH to all of those that volunteered their time to our students.

Makerspace in the DJ Media Center

 

5th Grade students explore and use creativity to construct buildings in the Media Center's Makerspace.

DJ Montague students have been busily exploring the Makerspace in DJM’s Media Center. Makerspace provides students in all grades, K-5, the opportunity to explore and problem solve with hands-on creating and building. There are opportunities to build, create, code, be innovative, collaborate, and use critical thinking. Here are some 5th grade students who constructed a large “building” and they were even able to fit inside! What a great space to explore and test new ideas.
