Key's School Pledge

I am a Key Elementary School student.

I hold the keys to unlock my success.

I pledge to follow the Key Attitudes of Leadership, Character, Academics, and Attendance.

These Keys will help me to become a leader of tomorrow.

I accept the challenge to be the best that I can be.

I will make today the very best day of all, for this day begins the rest of my life.
