The children of Keystone are creating and building their very own restaurant. A real restaurant created from the ground up based on their individual experiences
eating out, which they are obviously experts at! They have chosen a Medieval theme for their diner and will be adding appropriate decor and have settled on a name,
"The Dragon Diner!". Training has already begun for the employees and the grand opening date will be announced soon. This is the real deal folk; waiters, waiter's
assistants, cooks, hosts and even entertainment that changes daily.
All proceeds will go to help Keystone purchase large teaching monitors for their classrooms. To make a reservation at "The Dragon Diner!" and to set up an appointment
to tour the school, please call Janelle at 405.216.5400.

Next Saturday, December 10th, we will have open fishing at the Keystone Pond for our first Trout Day. It will be a great opportunity
for you and your kids to sit on the bank of the pond, relax and catch some fish. As many of you are aware we received a truckload of trout
last month and they are hungry and biting. The times for the Trout Day will be from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
A clinic on how to effectively catch trout and release trout will be held prior to the start of the fishing at 12:15 pm that Saturday. We will be
charging a $10/person entry fee for that trout day. This will be to help cover the cost of the trout, bait, hooks and weights. Due to the limited
number of trout in the pond, and our desire to fish for them all winter, your family will be allowed to keep one trout per person, so that you might
have an opportunity to taste what you catch, and they are quite yummy!
All you will need to bring will be your own fishing pole (one pole per person please), a pair of needle nose pliers, an old rag for handling the trout
(they are super slippery), a bucket or a tub of some kind to hold your fish in to keep them alive and possibly a chair to sit on.
If you are able to attend, please send an e-mail
with the number of attendees so that we can have a fairly accurate
count of how many fishermen. Should the weather be bad, we will reschedule for the following Saturday, December 17th.
We will be sending out additional details through e-mail throughout the week.

The 4th Annual Kickstart Charity Auction & Dinner entitled ”Cruisin’ With Keystone” will be held the evening
of Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Keystone Adventure School and Farm in Edmond, OK. Items from local businesses
and individuals will be up for grabs in a live and silent auction, and The Wise Guys will be on hand to perform
for the crowd. The public is invited to this event, for a ticket price of $30 per person, with all ticket sales
going to support the school. The theme focuses on a celebration of the journey of a child and the adventure
that is education at Keystone. The silent and live auction, hosted by the Keystone Kickstart committee, aims
to raise funds to support the continued renovation of school facilities and growth of the school. Unlike
traditional public schools Keystone Adventure School and Farm does not receive facility funds from the state
of Oklahoma, so we rely on the support of our parents and a caring community to make our school facilities possible.
The live auction will contain items such as a trip for 2 to Paris, spectacular art pieces created by notable
figures such as Desmond Mason and Brad Henry, and many other notable items. The silent auction will contain
great items from the surrounding community and local artists. This evening is made possible by the numerous
parents, staff members, and numerous people from the community and local businesses. It is truly amazing to
see all of the months of planning come together to create a night that truly makes a difference to the future
of Keystone! The secret of this successful event is the volunteers that give of their time to solicit items,
decorate, and handle all of the logistics of the auction. Save the date, September 10, 2011, to be a part of
this fantastic night that does so much to directly impact the lives of so many children.

Welcome to the start of Keystone Adventure School and Farm's seventh year. We are extremely excited about
the path of education that we are taking the children on this year. After completing our first day of school,
it is evident to all of the faculty, that this year will be our best ever. The children came in excited
and ready to learn and the teachers feel the same way. We can't wait to see the growth, academic, social
and emotional growth, that will occur for all of our children.
I hope that this year brings many great memories for all of the kids and their families as we begin
another epic journey in learning at Keystone.
