Dear Parents and Students of Christ the King High School,


At Christ the King, we are always looking for opportunities to challenge our students. Our goal is to present to our students programs that will assist them to expand their knowledge and skills and broaden their vision for their future careers. I  am happy to share with you a new venture for Christ the King students for the 2019 - 2020 school year.

Christ the King has been accepted into the Amazon Future Engineers Program. Amazon has invited us to join with them in their new program . By participating, Christ the King students will benefit from the curriculum, the additional resources,  and the Professional Development and instructional opportunities, which will be provided by Amazon. Students will be able to explore the broad world of Computer Science. We will be able to enhance our program and increase our materials and resources through this program.

In the fall, students who are enrolled in AP Computer Science and\or Introduction to Computer Science under the instruction of  Mr. Anton Jans will participate in the Amazon Future Engineers Program. Amazon has selected schools, who offer these courses, to partner in their new program.

The goal of the program is to introduce more students to the world of Computer Science through this curriculum and to provide resources and education to enhance what is already offered in our Computer Science courses. Amazon wants  to create a greater awareness of the many areas of study included in the field of Computer Science and the multitude of career opportunities in this field.

We are so very thrilled and proud to have been accepted into Amazon Future Engineers and look forward to the exciting experience that is ahead for our students.

Sincerely,

Miss Geri Martinez

Principal
