College Day Photos
Key West High School students had a great time at Area 7's NJROTC Basic Leadership Training Camp (BLTC) this year.  Area 7 BLTC is a rigorous outdoor adventure camp focused on team building and leadership skills.  It includes:  rock climbing, rappelling, canoeing, swimming, physical fitness, archery, air rifle, orienteering, military drill, academics, COPE (cooperative-outdoor-personal-experience), and a community service project.  Students that attended included Aleigha Kinsey, Gianna Rigali, Dakotah Macdonald, Cameron Castleman, Keenan Austin, and Charles Moore.

Key West students shined at the graduation and awards ceremony.  There were 5 platoons and a total of 121 students from all over Florida at the camp.  
Two students, Gianna Rigali and Aleigha Kinsey, earned the prestigious HONOR CADET award for their respective platoons.
Charles Moore won the Iron Man medal for most push-ups in a minute (64).  Aleigha Kinsey and Keenan Austin won the Team Orienteering challenge.  Aleigha Kinsey was also the top scorer in her platoon for the Air Rifle challenge.

"This year was a great success and I hope to have even more students attend next year," said Mrs. Morgante.
Conchettes to Represent Key West in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Six Key West High School Conchettes have been selected to perform in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.   Having attended the Marching Auxiliaries Summer Dance program at the University of Florida in Gainesville, the Conchettes were given instruction in a variety of dance genres including kick line, contemporary and hip hop.  Due to their dance ability, team work, and attitude, Tristin Blackwell, Riley Falconer, Daniela Pena, Marina Perez, Morgan Pierce, and Talia Santiago were selected by their instructors to receive an invitation to perform with the Spirit of America Dance Productions in this year’s Macy’s Parade on November 27.  The group has set up a account as a fundraiser.  We are very proud to have this Key West High contingent represent the Conchs in the Macy’s Day Parade!
