Spring Break Springing Up Soon

With just three weeks until Key West High School’s (KWHS) spring break, balancing work, school, life, and extracurricular activities has left many teachers and students overwhelmed and ready for the week-long break. However, there still are a few more critical things to be completed before then.

Between March 1st to March 16th, the last day before break, there is always something happening. Whether it’s the SAT or the PERT test to qualify for dual enrollment, or even the state competition the KWHS Mock Trial competition is competing from March 9th to the 12th. There is a track meet taking place on March 4th and the KWHS Band concert on March 2nd, along with the many other sports games or matches. A sophomore at KWHS and a member of the Mock Trial team, Amelia Morffi, states that she is excited for the break from school to get some time to relax. Another sophomore at KWHS, Breana Mckenney, agrees, saying that it will give her a “well-deserved break from school.” This will be very well needed since once everyone gets back to school, it’s noticeably busier with Advanced Placement (AP) testing and the final Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) test for 9th and 10th grades will also come up soon. Along with the KWHS Drama Club’s showing of the musical, Mean Girls, on May 12th and 13th. 

For most students, spring break is a time to relax and have fun with friends and family. Although River Hughes, a junior at KWHS, is excited to spend time with friends and family, she is also looking forward to having a break from school. Emily North, a sophomore at KWHS, agrees with River Hughes saying she’s excited to see her sister and spend time with friends. It’s safe to say that the 2023 spring break will be very well spent with family and friends. Over that week, there will be many things to do such as go on the boat, go fishing, or just going to the beach. 

It’s safe to say that KWHS teachers, students, and staff will have a well-deserved and well-rested spring break. So once school is back in session, they’ll dive back in to complete the remaining two months of the 2022-2023 school year.
