Meet our Upper School students: Jada and Celeste

December 05, 2018
By Bill Spedding

Name: Jada

Grade: Junior

Been at Keystone since: 1st grade

What is your favorite Keystone memory?
During my visit to Keystone kinder to see if I’d like the school, I came on “100 Day.” It was so cool and I wondered if school was always like this since it was my first really positive experience with schooling. I also made a 100-piece macaroni portrait of my mom.

Hidden Talent: I can perfectly imitate the sound of a pigeon.

What do you hope your legacy will be at Keystone?
I hope that I will be remembered as someone who showed you can have a balanced life. I feel I can be active socially, have activities outside of school and keep good grades. I don’t feel I ever had to give up what I wanted and could still excel at a great high school experience.

Short reflections on what I appreciate about Jada: Jada is fearless, a great advocate for herself and has a wonderful joy for life/sense of humor. She is comfortable thinking outside of the box, which only adds to her friend’s appreciation of her. I can also attest that her pigeon imitation is spot-on. 😀  

 

Name: Celeste

Grade: Senior

Been at Keystone since: 11th grade

What is your favorite Keystone memory?
Last year’s Spaghetti Lunch. It was a different type of activity from what happens at other schools. I was thankful to be part of a community with such special celebrations.

Hidden Talent: I am an amateur harmonica player, but I am very good at cat imitations. (pictured here with campus cat, Gary)

What do you hope your legacy will be at Keystone?
I hope to be remembered as a nice person by my classmates and teachers. I also hope to share my love of literature through developing a way for Lit Mag to recognize examples of Middle School creative writing. 

Short reflections on what I appreciate about Celeste: It is hard to believe that Celeste has only been here for a year and a half. She immediately brought a brightness of spirit to campus and dove right into wonderful friendships. Her able service as a leader of our Literary Magazine spreads kindness by example and makes our Stone Soul program something everyone looks forward to.
