Ketelsen’s Cups Hop up School Pride within the Community

January 27, 2017 | By northside


Last July, Ketelsen Elementary hosted the Ketelsen Spark Park Field Good Day. The event was created as a way for Near Northside residents to unwind and enjoy a day at the local Spark Park with friends and neighbors.


In an effort to showcase the burgeoning school to the public, Ketelsen partnered with Avenue to create a mural to the school via cups! Volunteers from the area came to take part in the fun of creating art with cups. When finished, the cups spelled out, “PROUD TO BE A KETELSEN KANGAROO!” with the mascot at the end.


Since its completion, the cups have been embraced by the students and community. According to Principal Cynthia Banda, “The cups give our students a sense of pride and ownership.”
