KINDER CARE – USB Commissioner Julia Kim interacts with a Quail Summit kindergarten student at the final event in the Golden Horseshoe.

Kindergarten students from Quail Summit Elementary enjoyed a day full of fun events during Diamond Bar High School’s second Kindergarten’s Day on March 11.USB greeted the kindergarteners who arrived at DBHS at 9 a.m. Throughout the day, students from the elementary school were given a tour around DBHS and participated different interactive activities.

USB members set up the activities at the amphitheater, theater, USB room, and Golden Horseshoe and were assigned to work at the various stations.

The kindergarteners were separated into three groups and followed a schedule USB arranged. At the amphitheater, students were able to dance, hula hoop, play, and draw with chalk.  In the theater, DBHS students presented a humorous skit which was about students in high school overcoming their failures.

Also at the theater, the All Male Dance Crew, Dance Team, and drumline performed. During the performances, they allowed the elementary school students to dance and play along with them. In the USB room, the kids received balloons, took pictures with the Brahma mascot, painted a poster, and played with Play-Doh.

“The best part of the day was just getting to talk to all of the kids individually and watching USB interacting with the kids. I hope [the kindergarteners] learned all the different activities our school has to offer and the family atmosphere our school promotes,” Kali De Cambra, Commissioner of Special Projects, stated.

Toward the end of the event, USB led the kindergarten students to the Golden Horseshoe for the last activity. Students drew a picture of the various activities they enjoyed throughout the day.

At the end of the day, DBHS’ Assistant Principal John Terry gave a final speech, encouraging the young students to do their best in school, and everyone concluded the day with the Brahma spell out.

“The whole event was worthwhile and I loved how the kids interacted with the high school students. I hope that high school is going to be a great experience for the [kindergarteners], and I wish that they will be eager to attend DBHS and do well,” Jasmine Thurston, mother of a Quail Summit Elementary student, said.
