Students at Northside School in the Levittown Public School District had the opportunity to experience the daily lives of professionals across numerous careers for Career Day on May 13.

Outside of Northside School stood ambulances, police cars, a firetruck and much more. Students spoke with various professionals about their career and their daily responsibilities. Students got to sit in the front seat of a Nassau County Police Department vehicle, see the plethora of equipment used by the Levittown Fire Department and the Wantagh-Levittown Volunteer Ambulance Corps and ride on the back of a garbage truck, just like Town of Hempstead sanitation workers.

Other guests had students make balloon art and Rich Hoffman, meteorologist for News12, showed students how he's able to predict the weather. Northside students left Career Day inspired to pursue similar careers.
