  • Our school focus for December is Giving to Others. Have you ever heard the saying, “it is better to give than to receive?” The fact is, as we go through life, we’ll need to do both – it’s important to accept help when you need it, and to give help when you can. Tomorrow begins Key West High’s Season of Giving. Clubs and sports teams have all picked service projects to work on this holiday season and as a school, we are going to work on the Brown Bag Drive. Each homeroom will be provided with brown bags and a grocery list. These bags will be given to our students who need a little extra over the holiday break. Whatever you can give or do to help others over the next three weeks, make it happen!
