Our #KeppelRocksTheArts Concert was a great success! Faces were painted, hair was colored, food and treats were eaten and performers got to shine on-stage. Perhaps most importantly, we were able to raise some more funds for the MKS Foundation and put on a great concert for the entire school. Thank you to all who participated and volunteered. Take a look at some photos here.
#KeppelRocksTheArts is coming up in less than two weeks and we need your help to make it a wonderful night! MKS is looking for volunteers to help out with set-up, clean-up or selling goods during the event.

MKS kicks off its Annual Family Fund Drive at Back To School Night. Did you know that 100% of the Resident Artist salaries comes directly from donations to MKS? Without the efforts and donations from our Keppel Families, we would have NO art classes at all.
Our 2017-18 Fund Drive Goal is $120,000. That's equal to $100 a student. All donations are tax-deductible and there are a variety of donation levels to consider. A minimum donation of $50 gets you an automatic entry into the Donate! Create! Win! Opportunity Drawing featuring art and family-friendly related prizes.
The Family Fund Drive will continue for the next two months, culminating in #KeppelRocksTheArts, a fun, family-friendly music concert featuring student bands, teacher bands and parent bands all rockin' the night away. Stay tuned for details on how you or your child can participate.
