Student Council Logo




The National Honor Society, or NHS, is a nationwide organization at KTEC that recognizes stellar students, beginning at fourth grade.  

Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service, and character.  A teacher selection committee carefully goes over each application and decides if students meet the four criteria.  If they do, they will participate in an induction ceremony in May.

National Elementary Honor Society is for grades 4-6

National Junior Honor Society is for grades 7-8


KTEC has safety patrol at both campuses.  They are a team of students who take on responsibilities to promote safety throughout the entire school.  They need to be a student in good academic standing, be a good role model, respectful, responsible and have a helpful attitude.

It is an honor and privilege to be a member of the patrol team.

Candidates are selected at the end of fourth grade. 5th-grade students new to KTEC will have the opportunity to be nominated for patrol by their teacher after first quarter.


Student council is open to all 5th-8th grade students who want to help make KTEC and the community a better place as well as gain leadership skills.

Student council runs programs like penny wars, talent shows, food drives, candy gram sales, and more!



PAWS is a group of students who volunteer their time to help staff with various tasks including tutoring students after school, helping with ongoing activities like helping a young student get ready at the end of the day, or a specific task like labeling a classroom library.

Students need to apply, be in good standing academically and be a positive leader in the school.

KTEC First LEGO League 

Theatre Program 

Young Rembrandts  


Chess Scholars

The primary goal of KTEC’s First LEGO League Club is to engage children in basic engineering challenges and teach engineering concepts. By using LEGO, it simplifies teaching engineering and allows children to learn through hands on experiences.  KTEC’s Theatre Program is comprised of staff and students who collectively come together to tell stories.  Through music, plays, improvisation, training, drama camp, and acting exercises, an infinite amount of stories can be told.  Whether someone is performing on the stage or working behind the scenes, every individual is an important part of the team. Young Rembrandts franchisees partner with schools and offers well-organized classes and teaching original, high-quality curriculum in a positive environment.
