National Groundhog Job Shadowing Day (grades 7 – 8) 
February 3, 2020

logoNational Groundhog Job Shadowing Day is a nationwide initiative that encourages professionals to provide job shadowing experiences for students. It is a program designed to give students the opportunity to experience the world of work outside of the classroom. Students see firsthand how the skills learned in school relate to the workplace. Job Shadowing is a short-term activity, typically four–eight hours that introduces a student to a particular job or career by pairing the student with a parent, guardian, relative, or career representative. This experience supports career exploration, an area our district supports from elementary through high school.

For 19 years, Lexington School District One has celebrated National Groundhog Job Shadowing Day in February, by inviting seventh– and eighth–grade students to explore a career area of interest. On February 3rd, 2020, our seventh grade students may job shadow a parent/guardian or a relative and our eighth grade students may shadow an individual who is working in a career area of interest. During the job shadowing activity the student will observe and learn about the company/organization, employees, and career options.
