Oh, the Places You’‘ll Go! Keystone KickstART 2013 Schedule of Events: 7:00 - Check-in, Silent Auction Begins, Open Bar, Art Bar 8:00 – Silent Auction Closes; Live Auction Begins ““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 Seuss...so 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 away... “...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.) Because… 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!

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 open...at least on one side.” - Dr. Seuss -- Donors: Risa’s class and Serina’s class L-8. New York State of Mind “You‘re off to great places!

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-13.

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!

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. Est. Value: $5500 Donors: Craig and Robin Starke, Matt and Kristen Spears, Amy Vanderkooi, Performance Coatings and the children of Keystone L-20.
