2nd graders at Allen East Elementary got a look at different careers Friday afternoon.

Parents of students stopped by the school to talk about their jobs and answer questions about their work, describing what they do and showing off some tools that they use on the job. The hope is that learning about jobs will help the students connect what they'll do in future with the schoolwork that they are doing now.

"They need to be thinking about their future and that all of these things that we're teaching - the math, and the science, and the reading - that there's a reason for that, that they're going to need it later in life to have a job, to have all the things that they want," said Kristi Austin, 2nd grade teacher for Allen East.

This is the second year that the school has held a career day.
