Welcome to Career & Technical Education

  • Career & Technical Education (CTE)

    Connecting Learning to Earning

     Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses are offered in grades 7-12 and focus on preparing students with professional training in a variety of career fields. Students develop an understanding of the importance of work and how performance, efforts, and decision making directly affect future educational and career opportunities. Students are trained in basic workplace skills as well as specific technical proficiencies in wide variety of career pathways.

    Career & Technical Education courses provide innovative educational opportunities within the Marysville School District. Students are engaged in learning and excited about the opportunity to experience focused course work that allows them to excel in an area of interest. Students who participate in CTE courses are being prepared to enter a highly competitive workforce based on a global knowledge and information economy.

    Students who are career and college ready need to be able to compete in this every changing workforce and have marketable skills that put them ahead of others. CTE offers these skills in a rigorous, hands-on, project based learning environment. CTE courses also offer embedded core academics which allow students to complete their high school graduation requirements more efficiently. CTE courses are aligned to Washington State teaching standards and offer high school as well as college credit in many areas. Instruction is provided by highly trained educators who are experts in their field of study.

  • Imagine Tomorrow

    May 19-21

    Alaska Airlines Imagine Tomorrow challenges 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to support the transition to sustainability. Students research complex topics related to sustainability, then innovate technologies, designs, or plans to mobilize behavior. They forge connections in their communities and create positive change. In this competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination.

    We will be sending 7 students to compete in the competition

    If interested please contact Glenn Owen, glenn_Owen@msd25.org

  • Guest Speakers at Cedarcrest Nutrition and Fitness Program

    Posted by Frances Mack at 2/9/2017

    Cedarcrest's own Student Resource Officer, Officer White and Colleen Mack, Providence Hospital emergency room nurse were guest speakers in Mrs. Mack's Nutrition and Fitness classes last month.   As part of the Substance Abuse Prevention unit, Officer White and Ms. Mack discussed issues related substance abuse from the perspective of law enforcement and health care.  Both shared information about the opportunities available for young men and women in their career firleds.  As a former Marysville school district student (from kindergarten to graduation) Colleen discussed the importance of maintaining good grades in all classes, and the benefits of AP and College in the High School courses for all college bound students.  We look forward to Officer White and Ms. Mack visiting later this spring with second semester students.

  • Mr. Shreeve's Robotics End of Semester Update-Cedarcrest

    Posted by Mr. Shreeve at 1/27/2017


    THIS WEEK IS THE SPECIAL END OF FIRST SEMESTER EDITION OF OUR WEEKLY NEWSLETTER. Due to short weeks, being under the weather, competing in the last FTC challenge, and just plain being super busy trying to get all the STEM classes here at Cedarcrest to finish their projects, I took a few weeks off from the weekly updates.   I thought it would be nice for both the parents of the STEM Robotics students and the 21st Century students to get a glimpse of what each program did as a final culminating project. 

     In STEM Robotics, the students used both the Light sensor and the infrared sensor in order to create a “Battle Bot” that could stay in a ring yet find another robot and either incapacitate it—or push it out of the ring. 

    robs1 18 robs



    The competition was a lot of fun for students and spectators alike.  This project was a culmination of all the skills the students learned over the semester:  Designing, building and testing a robot that can do a specific task, programming robots to do a repetitive act such as go forward or turn, and using the artificial intelligence features of the EV3 Brick to interpret data from a sensor, then act on it.  Students were also supposed to complete a group slide show on how to accomplish this last task.

    18 Robs

    This assignment was similar to what students would be asked to do at any high tech company:  Share the workload, collaborate, and create without even having to be in the same room, same building, or even same part of the world. 

    The next step for students who have taken a class like this is either Lego League or First Tech Challenge which are after school programs offered here at Cedarcrest.  Furthermore, EVCC has a robotics program that uses the same Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots to teach robotics.

    18 Robs robs robs  

    The 21st Century Students have been working on their final project which was  FORCES AND MOTION—ROCKETS. 

    The Design Problem: 

    To design, build and test a rocket that can launch an egg astronaut and bring it back safely...for the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. They want you to develop a unit that kids of all ages can safely build and launch around the Pacific Science Center grounds for their Tinker Tank Program.

    There were constraints associated with this challenge:

    1. Must use recycled materials

    2. No flammable or explosive fuels

    3. Must cost less than $3 dollars

    4. Must use a raw egg astronaut

    The 21st Century students have been researching about what type of rocket could solve the engineering problem.    Based upon their research and discussions in class, The Design Solution  was:

    To design, build and test a Soda Bottle Rocket that can carry an egg, has a recovery system, is made from recycled materials, and relies on water and compressed air for its fuel.

    The 21st Century Students designed, built and tested their rocket designs this past Wednesday.


    I’ve included a short You Tube video link  BELOW of one of the launches from this week.  Enjoy! 


    The culminating projects for both classes, as well as all of their other work from this semester were uploaded to their electronic journals on SeeSaw.  Please have your son/daughter share all their work from STEM Robotics and/or 21st Century classes by logging onto SeeSaw and looking at the electronic journals.   


    Additionally, The  Cedarcrest Timberbots of the Science/FTC Robotics Club competed again on Sunday, Jan17, in the tird and final competition at Everett High School in Everett, WA.

    Finally, On Behalf of all the STEM staff here at Cedarcrest, I want to thank all parents and students who were either directly or indirectly a part of making this past semester one to remember here at Cedarcrest. 

    Next Semester I will be teaching another round of 21st Century, another STEM class “How Things Work, and a High School Credited class “Exploring Computer Science.”
