Keeley's Art program includes projects introducing art mediums like painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. Students engage in two-dimensional and digital art. These art projects will encourage global and cultural awareness.
Mrs. McMurphy, Art teacher
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50 plus year-old program lets students explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and life.
Greeting card contest winners
Our Keeley 5th-graders participated in the GISD Greeting Card contest. All of the votes are in and our first place winner is Natalie Luce. Second place went to Arsemawit Legesse and we had a tie for third place. The winners for third place were Jaden Yerger and Sophia Bohac. Congratulations to all of these talented students.
All of the winning entries from each elementary campus will be submitted for competition with other GISD schools. The winning card from the district will be used as the district's greeting card this holiday season.
Music education at Keeley includes several learning concepts such as singing, playing instruments, reading music, creating music (with and without musical software), as well as sharing music with community through performance. Our music students learn about music from other cultures and other time periods. Most of all, students develop a passion for music that will stay with them throughout their lifetime.
Miss Block, Music teacher
Music is a piece of art that goes in the ears, straight to the heart.
The Honor Choir at Keeley consists of fourth and fifth grade students who are chosen because of their musical talent as well as their outstanding behavior and leadership ability. The choir performs at many functions and competitions throughout the school year.
