Ինչպէս գրած էինք վերջերս, միջ-դպրոցական ասմունքի մրցոյթին ՀԲԸՄ Մանուկեան-Տեմիրճեան վարժարանի երկու աշակերտուհիներ՝ 4-րդ դասարանցի Նիքոլ Զիբդիան եւ 7-րդ դասարանցի Սեւանա Այվազեանը համապատասխանաբար երկրորդ եւ երրորդ տեղերը գրաւած էին իրենց տարիքային խումբերուն մէջ միջ-դպրոցական ասմունքի մրցոյթին: Մրցոյթը տեղի ունեցած էր Մայիս 14-ին, Հայ Քոյրերու վարժարանին մէջ, Մոնթրոզ:

Յունիս 15-ին տեղի ունեցաւ մրցանակաբաշխութիւնը Ազգային Առաջնորդարանի սրահին մէջ, Թահանկա։ Ներկայ էին մրցանակային տեղեր գրաւած աշակերտները, ծնողներ, հարազատներ, մասնակից հայկական դպրոցներու ուսուցիչներ, տնօրէններ եւ հիւրեր։

Կը շնորհաւորենք Նիքոլը եւ Սեւանան, ինչպէս նաեւ իրենց հայերէնի ուսուցչուհիներն ու ծնողները այս պատուարժան մրցանակներուն համար։

As we had recently reported, two students from AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School competed in the Inter-School Poetry Recitation Competition. Nicole Zibdea of grade 4 and Sevana Ayvazian of grade 7 claimed second and third place in their respective age groups. The competition took place on May 14th at the Armenian Sisters Academy in Montrose.

The awards ceremony for this competition took place on June 15 at the Armenian Apostolic Church of Crescenta Valley in Tujunga, CA. Students, parents, faculty, and community members came together to celebrate this occassion and congratulate the victors for their poetic prowess.

Numerous speakers congratulated the students for their achievements. Mr. Mihran Toumajan eloquently commenced the event before a series of prize-winning students delivered their rousing poetry recitations. Among those students were Nicole Zibdea and Sevana Ayvazian.

We wish to congratulate Nicole and Sevana as well as their Armenian language teachers and parents for making possible this momentous occasion.

From L.A. to B.A.

Since 1999, Titans have expanded their international horizons through the AGBU Student Exchange Program with our sister school in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Principal Avanesian and MMS Teacher Ms. Houry Khechoumian accompanied High School students for a once in a lifetime journey. ¡Buen camino!

High School Graduation 2016

Class of 2016, you are brilliant, bold, and brimming with bright futures. You are scholars, artists, martial artists, humanitarians, and stalwarts in the fight against cancer. You have campaigned to prevent bullying, supported our Armenian brothers and sisters in Syria and Artsakh, earned academic distinctions on the national stage, and hoisted trophies to celebrate your athletic triumphs. Your class of 45 students has served nearly 8,000 hours of community service and is bound for schools near and far, from UC Berkeley to UCLA to CSUN to The Citadel Military College of South Carolina -- we are proud of each and every one of you. Your accomplishments are too many to list, and our love for you is too great for words.

Over the course of your AGBU careers, you have forged lifelong friendships while extending a tradition that stretches back decades in nations across the global diaspora - the singular tradition of an Armenian education. A century ago in Istanbul, fifty years ago in Isfahan, decades ago in New Delhi, and weeks ago in Beirut, the AGBU academic experience is something that connects you not only to one another, but to a global community of thinkers and doers.

And as Titan alumni, there are a few basic facts of life: first, our school will always be your second home. Drop in any time. Say hi to your old teachers. Email us. Tweet at us. But don’t Snapchat, we’re not quite there yet. Keep us posted on what you’re up to and how we might be able to help. Second, as alumni, you are now ambassadors representing the values and skills we shared with you during your time here. You have been blessed with the opportunity to learn in a loving community that has bestowed upon you the rich cultural heritage that binds us all. And from that heritage you are embarking on the journey of creating your own unique relationship with that heritage. Brothers and sisters, go to Armenia, go to Artsakh, go to Istanbul, go to Van, go to Tblisi. Create your own relationship with the history we have shared with you. Volunteer there. Intern there. Work there. The opportunities are plentiful, and you will be the better for it.
