School Wide Celebration for and Dedication of Colt Statue Spirit

  It was terrific weather for the outside celebration of "Spirit" the Kellar Colt.  The colt statue is one of many animal sculptures created by local artist, Monte De Gallo.  During the ribbon cutting dedication ceremony, Tommy W. and Mia N. were both recognized for selecting the name "Spirit", which was voted on by the entire student body last year.  In addition, Madilyn R.'s artwork was chosen and framed by Exhibit A Gallery and given to Steven and Marilyn Kohn as a token of appreciation for their donation of "Spirit" to Kellar School.  The festivities were reported on in both Peoria Public Schools Remarkable Times as well as Week News 25.  The event concluded with delicious snow cones from Kona Ice.
