The Big Give - March 28
For this year’s Big Give campaign, we are benefitting the Daniel Wesley Stevens Memorial Endowed Fund for Teacher Support. This fund directly benefits the people who propel our school’s mission – our teachers. This fund helps our faculty in their pursuits to continue to learn and grow in the subject they teach and are passionate about. Already, the fund has helped provide professional development opportunities, continuing education, and more. Find out more about Danny Stevens and the fund here.

What is your favorite Keystone memory?

It was near the end of 5th grade when Mr. Howk and some of the students in my older brother’s grade made a Rube Goldberg machine to celebrate breaking ground for the Shadfan Science Building. It was so different than what I had experienced in my previous schools and made me realize just how cool and different Keystone was.

Billy's Blog: From the Head of School
“Well who says life is fair? Where is that written? Life isn’t always fair.”

Having worked with high school seniors for over thirty years, I have tried to warn them up front that the college selection process isn’t fair.

Parent Connection Book Club - April 11

Please join Keystone Counselors Alison Raymer and Erica Shapiro as we discuss  Gist: The Essence of Raising Life-Ready Kids   by Michael Anderson, LP, and Timothy Johanson, MD. Written by a pediatrician and child psychologist, the book examines what the journey to adulthood entails, and how to help our children get there. In this insightful, sometimes unconventional, approach, parents will be challenged to examine their own beliefs about parenting and the journey to adulthood. 

The book club is open to all Keystone parents, and is a great way to meet other parents and share experiences and perspectives. The book is available on Amazon. 

Please rsvp to  araymer@keystoneschool.org .
