  • Jobs, Careers, Occupations!

    Hammond Eastside Kindergarteners have been hard at work learning about a variety of occupations and the skills needed to perform the duties and responsibilities well. Teacher Jennifer Perricone invited parents and community members into her classroom to share their occupations. Students were so excited and welcomed their family and friends into their classrooms. Hammond Eastside teacher, Rita Parish, even took a day off of work to contribute to the Kindergarteners learning by volunteering to be the subject of a makeover by Julie Guzzardo, hairdresser. Lily’s mom and dad provided special permission for Lily to receive a new haircut and style by Taylor McDonald, hairdresser. They were also visited by a civil engineer, a speech pathologist, and an electrical engineer’s wife who works for Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Mrs. Kim Algero even brought each child and each teacher a Mickey Mouse hat with their own name inscribed on the back!
