Everyone in the school, students, teachers, cooks, and support people cut out an outline of their hand and decorated it in their own unique way. We put the hands in a design around the Arts poster. Individually the hands look good, but when they are put together they look awesome. This is a lesson to all of us. Individually we can do good things, but TOGETHER we can accomplish GREAT things!

Jug Band

Parents/ Guardians

I am Mr. Burns. I am the Arts Teacher at Keavy. I am reaching out to the community for some help.  I am in the process of starting a "Keavy Elementary Mountain Jug Band". To do this, I need some objects to make the instruments that we will use. I could use the following:

  • Gallon ceramic jugs with a handle.
  • Harmonicas
  • A large metal wash tub
  • A wash board
  • Large metal spoons
  • Cookie tins

I am hoping to get the instruments ready and have the band ready to perform for Veterans’ Day, November 11h.

I am also looking for musicians that would be able to come to our school and perform “Mountain/Bluegrass music, using instruments like the Dulcimer, Banjo, Fiddle, Guitar, Mandolin, Bass, etc.  Our community is full of great musicians and I would like to use them to help the children learn the importance of that type of music to our culture.

 Any help you could give will be greatly appreciated.
