ES BEIGAO CORNER
A Monthly Tradition
that Says It All
By Christina Chung, Elementary Assistant Vice Principal, Daystar Academy Beigao Campus
ommunity. Communities are stronger when you
build memories and celebrate together. And
Daystar’s Monthly Assemblies are all about a
celebration of our beautiful community.
Our student emcees welcome the school and lead us
through a variety of presentations that showcase all
of the wonderful activities that has been going on in
the past month. The assemblies are aligned to the
monthly character theme that comes from our Core
Values and the 3 Bees - Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be
Respectful. Classes sign up to make presentations about
how their class has been learning and digging deeper
into practicing the monthly character theme.
Classes have presented skits, made movies, and shared
a ppt to show how they have served their community.
We also give different individual or group of students
Daystar Academy Spring/Summer Edition 2019
opportunities to present the learning that has been
happening. This can range from a student wanting to
share a poem about the importance of 3 Bees to a
student’s keynote presentation for a call to protect the
rights of grasshoppers.
We also report and make announcements of upcoming
events and school wide activities to ensure that
community is on the same page. We end each assembly
with a lottery to celebrate the students who’s names
have been chosen to represent the many other students
who have received a learner profile card displaying our
PYP learner profile traits (Knowledgeable, Thinker,
Inquirer, Reflective, Balanced, Principled, Open-
Minded, Communicator, Courageous, and Caring). We
applaud these students and ourselves as we celebrate
our community for continuing to make efforts to being
the best learning community we can be.
