““You have to be a speedy reader because there‘s so so much to
read.“” -– Dr. Seuss
Welcome to our 5th annual
Keystone KickstART! We are so
grateful to be in our 9th year at
Keystone. Our little school is
growing in the most wonderful
ways. We watch Keystone grow
much the same way you watch
as your child grows in stature
and wisdom - with delight (and
sometimes a wince) as they
make their way through the
growing pains of life.
We at Keystone firmly believe
in every child and value who each is and how each learns. We believe
that their journeys are, indeed, their journeys, and we are merely
their guides. And, oh, the places we will go!
I usually write something philosophical here, but I remembered we
are doing why mess with the master. Here are a few
thoughts that are very Keystonian from Dr. Seuss (aka Ted Geisel)
the master of childspeak genius and start-up guy of the original
“TED Talks.” I’m pretty sure that Dr. Seuss would have sent his
kids to Keystone...and even more sure that Keystone is training
several future heirs to the Seussical throne! So….we’re off and
“...You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes (sometimes).
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose…
...Whenever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest…
...Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t. (Thank goodness for failure!)
...I’m sorry to say so
but, sadly, it’s true
that Bang-ups
and Hang-ups
can happen to you…(Yep!)
...You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go. (Chickens, pigeons, teachers...)
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
Today you are you. That is truer than true.
There is no one alive, who is you-er than you!
And because, (dear ones) after all…
A person is a person, no matter how small."
We are honored to learn and play beside your children. Thank you
for blessing our days with their delightful souls!
Thank you to our tireless committee of parents and faculty and all
of our faithful and generous donors who keep this lovely dream
alive for our Keystone Wild Things! Enjoy the evening, and thank
you for supporting Keystone Adventure School and Farm!

it into tiny pieces, which they placed lovingly onto drawings of
fish. Look closely for each child’s name on at least one of the
mosaic pieces. We can taste the whimsy and are certain that
Seuss would approve of our Keystone version. ”Not one of
them is like another. Don’t ask us why. Go ask your mother…” Dr. Seuss

L-7. All Together Now
This version of Paul Klee’s “Senecio,” (Old man), is a Keystone
favorite. Almost every child has the opportunity to paint
his/her version of our old friend before they leave Keystone.
However, this is the first time we have collaborated on a
large version of “Senecio.” Jet Hoffman, Keystone 5th
grader, undertook the drawing, and then Risa’s and Serina’s
classes collaborated in the cubist style of recreating Klee’s
work. The children teach us that we are a sum of all the parts
of the people and experiences in our lives. Here is a
culmination of a bunch of squares that came together as we
took time to share. ”So... that is why I tell you to keep your
eyes wide. Keep them wide least on one side.” - Dr.

L-11. Hard Way to Make an Easy Living
Toby Keith is an old friend to Keystone, faithfully donating a
signed guitar or case of wine every year to our auction.
Because these guitars have become so popular, he has stopped
giving them to anyone except his foundation, Ally’s House, and
to Keystone. We thank Toby and Tricia for financial support
and donations. This package includes the Toby Keith guitar
signed by Toby!

L-12. From Here to There
“So be sure where you step. Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act.” - Dr. Seuss
The entirety of Keystone Wild Things gathered their ideas of
what Keystone looks like to them and created a “Seussical
Map of Keystone!” Serina’s and Risa’s classes drew and
painted the background which prepared for the placement and
collaging of original drawings by every child. From the
pasture, to the pond, to the pigeon loft to the whimsical
schoolhouse, each child created a tree, person, creature or
building to share their vision of our happy and colorful
campus. Just put this in your pocket and you will never again
be lost!
Donors: The children of Keystone Adventure School and Farm

L-17. Bedlam in the Sky
Both Desmond and Barry have gone beyond the pale on this
one-of-a-kind second edition collaboration. Desmond painted
the background of this abstract piece in a way that embodies
both the Sooners and the Cowboys coming together under the
Oklahoma sky and then Barry added the “Xs” and “Os.” Since
both of these guys have their own magic, this piece
transcends the normal. You will never go wrong collecting
Desmond’s art or Barry’s signature. This is a one-two punch,
double dang powerhouse, one-of-a-kind abstract acrylic on
canvas! Buy it and be the envy of all your friends! Deepest
gratitude to the generosity of Desmond Mason and Barry
Switzer...both living legends!
Donors: Desmond Mason and Barry Switzer

L-19. A Fluctuation of Illumination for Your Room-ination
"The far-fluxuation of an idea" came together when Jenny,
Kristen, and Robin were chit-chattering about how this year's
chandelier might represent Keystoneville in a Seussicalwhimsical way. They ‘thunked,’ and they thought; they giggled
and gaggled, and out came an idea of great proportion - a
marvelous, spectaculous notion. Robin sketched a drawing of fun
things she could make with metal and steel and glass that won't
break. They knew there was fun to be done with the folks of
Keystoneville. So all of the kids from the tallest to the smallest
each drew shapes of their own in class one day, and Robin and
Kristen and Amy cut their shapes into glass, hooray! They
combobulated their way onto the fun chandelier of painted steel
and light, and they shimmer and shine in a way that's just right.
You too could own this far-fluxuation of light, if you care to bid
high in the auction tonight.
