2017 SuperStates Chess Tournament!

On the 18th and 19th of March, a chess-enthused contingent of 63 Titans gathered in Valencia, CA at the 2017 SuperStates Chess Tournament. This tournament marked the very first time A.G.B.U. Manoogian-Demirdjian School has participated in a statewide rated chess tournament, and the first competition since the launch of our newly established chess program under the leadership of Mr. Artur Aghajanyan. Among a competitive cohort of local powerhouse club and school chess programs, A.G.B.U. MDS stood tall with a series of strong finishes including:
*2nd place for K and 1st grade (7 students, 1 team)
*2nd place for K through 3 as a school team (under 600 rating)
*3rd place for K through 6 as a school team (under 600 rating)
*Individual trophies won by Veronica Minasyan (1st best under 250 rating in K-6), Raffi Abrahamian (4th best unrated in K-6 under 600), Sevag Vakian (1st best unrated in K-3 under 600), Ari Abrahamian (5th best unrated in K-3 under 600), Arno Minasyan (1st best under 250 rating in K-3), and Sandro Beglarian (2nd best under 250 rating in K-3).

A special thanks to Mrs. Halburian, Mrs. Konyalian, and the many parents in attendance for all of their support in making our weekend of chess an unforgettable one. Hop over to our Facebook page to enjoy the full photo album!

Land of the Rising Sun -- Japan Model United Nations!

DHS students Andrew Demirdjian, Derrick Davidian, and Johnny Kamakian have ventured across the Pacific to participate in the 2017 Pacific Rim Model United Nations conference in Kawasaki, Japan. There they are presenting papers and debating policies pertaining to the Syrian refugee crisis and over fishing and other threats to marine ecosystems. With Principal Avanesian, they are learning as much as possible inside and outside the conference with site visits to Japan's religious, cultural, and historical sites. Yesterday they visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, a solemn space to honor the lives lost in the world's first and most devastating nuclear bomb attack. In August 1945, an American fighter jet dropped an atomic bomb which claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese citizens. Check out our Facebook page for more photos!
