o me…community is at the heart of everything. Community allows us
to connect with one another, learn from one another, help one another,
and be a friend to one another. As a staff of Ivy Education Group and a
Daystar parent for five years, I am still constantly touched, and in awe at how
amazing our community truly is.
It can be something as simple as witnessing children sing their hearts out at a
fun Karaoke Family Night; seeing the earnest love and care our Star Parents
pour into every dish and decoration at Daystar’s annual Staff Appreciation
Luncheon, or the enthusiasm and school spirit displayed at our sporting
events. What ties all of these events together is a constant theme: we truly
value, and embrace our community.
The key though is that it’s not just about us, or our group. It’s about what we
can also do to connect, learn, and help others who we may not even know.
Which is why I am so delighted that this May and June, Ivy Education Group
will be hosting our two biggest community events of the year: UNITY DAY, and
our Charity Concert “A Night to Remember”.
UNITY DAY is our way of thanking you, our Daystar families, colleagues and
friends for choosing us to be a part of your child’s educational journey; for
choosing us, to be your community.
Our “A Night to Remember” Charity Concert is an opportunity for our Daystar
and Ivy community to come together as one, to make a real difference in
people’s lives. So please take a moment to review our ad (on the opposite
page) and read our article SPOTLIGHT. With your support, we will hopefully
be able to raise enough funds to help three girls graduate from high school,
ten children travel to Beijing for urgent medical care, and cover the operation
costs for two young, abandoned children so that they can become
eligible for adoption and find their forever home.
We look forward to welcoming you at our community events.
We also hope you will enjoy reading this issue and will be
able to witness how and why we are and always will be
“Embracing Our Community, and Beyond”.
With warmest regards,
Chief Editor of VOICES &
Director of Community Advancement,
