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.

Adviser for the west campus: Mr. Hartfield

Adviser for the east campus: Mrs. Petersen
