School News

By Michelle Taylor

On Friday January 11, Mount Vernon Elementary School had a future day. The teachers asked their students to dress like something they wanted to be when they grow up.

Mrs. Soloman's class has plans for the future

This was the first year the school decided to do this and for many, they know what their future holds for them.

"I always loved to play teacher when I was younger,” said Andrea Solomon, one of the third grade teachers. “Although I had many different ideas of what I wanted to be when I grew up, being a teacher was the one I always came back to."

The students in her class envisioned their futures pursuing careers such as veterinarians, chefs, horseback riders and even pro sports players including soccer, ice skating, baseball, and hockey. She even had students that want to be teachers of dance, kindergarten, and second grade.

When asked what she hopes for these students, Mrs. Solomon replied, "My hope for every student is for them to find success in doing something they love! They are all so smart, creative, and full of hope. I want them to take that with them as they grow and change the world in their own way."
