Summerfest Thanks
The students and staff of Key Largo and Plantation Key Schools would like to thank The Florida Keys Youth Sports Foundation for their organization and tireless dedication in sponsoring of the Summerfest that was held on June 13th.  FKYSF sponsored this event in order for both Key Largo and Plantation Key Schools to raise funds for the afterschool sports programs.

Summerfest raised $19,000 and with additional funds added from the Keys Children Foundation and the Ocean Reef Foundation, each school was presented a check for $11,000. Pictured is Annette Martinson, Principal of Key Largo School and Vanessa Strickland, Principal of Plantation Key School receiving the checks from Amy Stoky and Gen Gibson of the Florida Keys Youth Sports Foundation on September 4.

These groups are to be commended for their interest in and concern for our schools. It is the assistance of citizens such as these that have enabled our school district to accomplish far more than it otherwise could have.  Thank you to all of the volunteers that made the Summerfest possible.Summerfest Thanks
