Free daily breakfast will be available at Wendler Middle School, adjacent to the west side of King Tech High School. Students arriving on the bus will be dropped off at the Wendler Middle School entrance closest to KTHS. Students who wish to grab breakfast may do so and walk over to KTHS for class.

Free lunch is available for students, which will be served at Wendler. Staff will escort students to Wendler for lunch every day. Lunch is closed campus and students are expected to remain on the KTHS or WMS campus.

CTE Summer Career Exploration staff will be on site at Wendler to assist with directing students to and from Wendler Middle School.

Courses

The goal of CTE Summer Career Exploration program is to support the student transition from 8th grade to 9th grade. The transition support will be delivered through the Career Pathway Intensive Course. Through this course, students can opt for a .5 elective high school credit. Students must attend all 9 days of session one to earn credit and a grade.

Career Pathway Intensive Course: In addition to exploring 6 different career fields, all 8th grade students will take a career interest inventory, spend 2 weeks exploring careers, and design a high school academic plan that prepares them for their post-secondary career interests. Students completing the Middle School Career Exploration Camp will be better equipped to get the most out of what high school has to offer!

Summer Academy Course Descriptions can be found on the KTHS website under course offerings (CTE Summer Exploration). The exploratory career field courses are project based and designed to be fun and engaging.

Absence

Attendance will be taken in every class. Students are expected to attend all days of the session. If your child is going to be absent, please contact KTHS 742-8900 to report the absence. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at mcginley_kern@asdk12.org

We look forward to seeing your student on Tuesday (6/01)!
