    Upcoming Key Club Activities

     SBHS Essential Items and Food Pantry

    Silver Bluff High School Key Club created the food pantry at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year with hopes that we could serve the students of our school who were in need of assistance. After a successful year serving many of our students and giving many others the opportunity to make donations to the food pantry, we are excited about this coming year and what we will have to offer. The food pantry is located the room between the data room and the bulldog lab. We will be open daily during 7th period for students to visit the food pantry and shop for needed items. Students may request to go to the food pantry/restroom, and they should enter the pantry with a pass from their 7th period teacher. Students are required to sign in using their student ID. They may take the items with them back to class or pick them up at the end of the day on the way to their car or the bus. If you see a need during the day, you are welcome to take what you need from the pantry as well. We will be keeping inventory and sending reports to guidance to track who is visiting the pantry so we can serve them to the best of our ability. Leadership students will run the food pantry and will be asked to keep the visitors anonymous for privacy. You may donate to the food pantry as well. Please see the list below of items we try to keep in stock for our students. Feel free to donate items that are not listed as well. Items may be dropped off in Mrs. Dandridge’s room 159. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you! mdandridge@acpsd.net

    Core Values

    Leadership » Leadership is grounded in humility and service to others. A true leader listens, recognizes, and empowers.

     Objectives of Key Club International

    Key Club aims to cooperate with school principals and teachers to provide high school students with invaluable experience in living and working together and to prepare them for useful citizenship. Our members develop initiative and leadership skills by serving their schools and communities.

    In doing so, we hope to promote and accept the following ideals:

    • To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.

    • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.

    • To promote the adoption and application of higher standards in scholarship, sportsmanship and social contacts.

    • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.

    • To provide a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render unselfish service and to build better communities.

    • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.
