Host a buy-in event or party for parents or students! Buy-in events or parties are a great way to meet other Kealing parents, for kids to spend time with each other outside of the Kealing classrooms, and a great way to support Kealing! You don’t have to do it alone. Team up with other families, neighbors, or teachers to host! The possibilities are endless, but some ideas include: Parents Only Dinner and Game Night, Wine & Chocolate Pairing Event, Family Karaoke Party, BBQ Picnic and Lawn Games, Kids Camping Trip, House Concert, Bicycle Tour for Kids, and more.
NEW this year, buy-in events will be available for purchase on this event website to maximize exposure! Fill out the form at the link below to donate! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.

Kealing Middle School, which opened in the fall of 1930, is named for Hightower Theodore Kealing, an Austin African-American educator, writer, editor, and activist. Today, Kealing is a unique school in the Austin Independent School District which offers an Academy Program that provides a rigorous and engaging curriculum to students in its East Austin neighborhood, and a comprehensive advanced academic Magnet Program that educates students from all over the city of Austin.
Kealing Center Stage began primarily as a community building event. Over the past three years, this fundraiser has developed to become the largest annual fundraising event for Kealing PTA. This event is supported and attended by a remarkable community of Kealing families, faculty, staff, friends, and businesses which have all come together to raise funds for Kealing PTA.
Kealing PTA supports Kealing Middle School by providing funding to many school-wide key initiatives including:
Technology needs for students
Teachers’ attendance at national conferences for professional development
Educational field trips for students
Popular programs such as music production and robotics
Kealing Center Stage 2015 will take place at Opal Divine’s Penn Field location on Saturday, April 11 from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Please join us for dinner catered by Opal Divine’s, enjoy live music featuring Wild Seeds and The Spiral Notebooks, and bid on fantastic silent and live auction items.
Please consider donating an auction item, becoming a sponsor for this year’s event, and/or encouraging your friends and community businesses to do the same! Thank you for your consideration and support!
