The CTE programs showcased their “CTE University” at each elementary school, in the district, for their annual spring event. Under the leadership of CTE director Christy Murray, all 14 pathways were able to show K-6 students what each program entails. Jackson University was held on Tuesday, Jan. 15th, Wise University was held on Tuesday, Jan. 26th, and Kissam University was held Friday, March 5th.

The pathways included Animal Science, Audio Video, cosmetology, Culinary, Engineering, Health Science, Information Technology, Law Enforcement, Outdoor Education, Photo Journalism, Print Shop, Ready Set Teach, Welding, and Wood Shop. Each student at the elementary campuses were able to choose three different courses to learn about and actively participate in with hands-on experiments.

“We got to teach the kids about CPR and X-Rays,” said Health Science student Danna Moreno. “I enjoyed seeing the kids have fun with it.”

In place of the annual Middle School Showcase night, 8th graders will see the CTE pathways through a virtual presentation made by Audio Video students this spring.
