News & Announcements

The Annual Scholastic Book Fair is Coming to AGBU MDS Next Week!

The Annual Scholastic Book Fair is Coming to AGBU MDS Next Week! The Scholastic Book Fair begins the week of November 3, 8:15 AM - 4:00 PM. We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to open a world of possible.

Our Scholastic Book Fair theme - Sir Readalot’s Castle: Enter the Kingdom of Books! – surrounds students in the celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover.

A goal of our Book Fair is to enrich Classroom Libraries. You can help us reach our goal by purchasing Gift Certificate for your child’s classroom in your child’s name. The teacher will use the certificate in the Book Fair to buy books for the classroom library.

Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair. Hope to see you there!
Kindergarten & 5th Grade Buddies

Kindergarten & 5th Grade Buddies On October 29, the fifth grade class of 2015 and our kindergarten students (class of 2020) began their year-long adventure by sharing a treasured book. Sitting in the festive area outside of the kindergarten classrooms, the fifth graders read their favorite picture book from when they were in kindergarten to their new buddies. Shared laughs could be heard from the partnerships, and many connections were made over the delightful words from Dr. Seuss, Jan Berenstain, and other fabulous children's authors. Our new-found friendships will blossom during the course of the year as the students discover more special books together, some even written especially for the kindergartners by their fifth-grade buddies.
Character Counts Assembly

Character Counts Assembly On Wednesday, October 22, 2014, a Character Counts Assembly was held for grades K-5. The assembly was conducted by Obediah Thomas (from the “Razzle Bam Boom” performing company), entitled “The Character Show.”

Obediah is an engaging elementary school presenter, who uses humor, music and storytelling to educate and motivate elementary school students. He has 20 years of experience as a professional comic. He is also a skilled vocalist and trumpet player with a BA degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. In 1999, he co-founded the popular duo Razzle Bam Boom. Obediah has performed live for over one million children at over 1,000 schools and theaters throughout the country.

We would like to thank Obediah Thomas for the wonderful assembly. He used humor, music and acting to teach our students about the six character traits: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. The character message of the day fit perfectly with our school-wide character goals. We were impressed with the high level of engagement and enjoyment all the students showed during the assembly. The assembly helped our students to better understand and appreciate the Six Pillars of Character and the importance of demonstrating positive behavior at all times. Follow up classroom activities and discussions will be held with our students to reinforce the Six Pillars of Character.

Fruit Tree Giveaway and Pep Rally

<b> Fruit Tree Giveaway and Pep Rally</b> On October 17, at 3pm, excitement was buzzing on our school campus as two important events brought a sense of community to students, parents, and neighbors.

Collaborating with Assemblymember Matt Dababneh's office, Million Trees LA, and Armenia Tree Project, one hundred fruit trees were given away at our school gate. It didn't take long for all of the mango, orange, and pomegranate trees to find a new home with anyone in the community who wished to stop by, meet, and chat with Mr. Dababneh, Sanan Shirinian, and Talin Sardarbegians (from Congressman Brad Sherman's office). We thank them for their communication with our school and hope to build upon this relationship in the future.

Additionally, our Booster Club parents hosted a successful pep rally in the quad area that involved lighthearted games with our coaches. Mr. Dababneh caught the tail end of that rally and presented our school administration with a certificate of recognition.
