Project Unify
This is the inaugural year for Key West High School to have a Project Unified Track Team. The team had its first meet last week and did a fantastic job. The girls came in 1st place in the 4x400 relay and 2nd in the 4x100. The boys placed 4th in both relay events. The team is coached by KWHS teacher, Tami Dannacker. Their next meet is April 16th at Naples High School. We would like to thank the FHSAA and Special Olympics for partnering together to make all of this possible!

Florida Association of Student Council’s Convention
Pictured are Student Council members Isabel Cardenas, Rob Taylor, Julien Ohayon, Antonio Cardenas

Key West High School’s Student Council attended the Florida Association of Student Council’s Convention for the first time this past weekend. Our students attended general sessions where they heard from amazing speakers and experienced the organization of the council voting process. We added to and assisted in the organization of the state wide community service project Honor Flight by organizing items to be put in shoe boxes and sent to current military soldiers and veterans. At their workshop sessions, our students shared ideas with other schools concerning leadership, ethics, organization and special activities (pep rallies, homecoming, and fundraising). 
They were very excited to have this opportunity and are looking forward to bringing these newly acquired ideas to light in the coming year.
