KESTERFEST is here!!

Please join us for games, bounce houses, food trucks, Silent Auction and more on April 30th, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. This is our Tenth Annual World Music and Arts Festival, which pays for art education for all of Kester’s students. Students’ artwork from the entire year will be on display in our art tent, and for the first time this year, we will be raffling off amazing art projects done by various classrooms. The Silent Auction has something for everyone– from summer camps, amusement park tickets, tickets to sporting events, sports memorabilia, movie premier tickets and restaurant gift cards– if you want it, we have it. Our stage will be jumping with student performances and performances from Rich and the Skinny Little Twits and the Burbank Music Academy Band. For more information, visit where you can find out how to participate and volunteer. Kesterfest pays for art instruction for all Kester students. Come for all the fun and stay to save art, P.E., field trips and our science lab.
