Lunch with the Keys

Principal, Dr. Roderick Sheppard

Superintendent, Dr. Jimmy Shaw

Florence High School’s Lunch With The Keys was proposed by a contract employee, Mr. Pete Key, to modify students’ behavior that resulted in Alternative School. Started at the Alternative School, the program helped students build character, develop conflict resolution skills, identify mentors, improve communication skills, and develop leadership qualities. Students worked to build successful habits prior to the return to the regular school setting. When students transitioned back to Florence High School, they asked to continue the program which led to its beginning at Florence High. Counselors and administration identified students to participate, and Mr. and Mrs. Key worked with students twice a week during lunch. During this non-traditional, lively conversation, students learned to resolve conflict without violence and built healthy relationships. The program equipped Florence High with an intervention to reach struggling students and those with mental health challenges by providing a safe environment free of stigma. High-energy, school-wide assemblies addressing mental health issues were a product of the program with social workers, interns, counselors, life coaches, and motivational speakers as facilitators. Exit survey data showed program participants left the program with increased emotional intelligence, increased attendance, and reduced discipline referrals.
