News & Announcements

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.

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. NHS membership is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Members are nominated and elected based on scholarship, exemplary character, and proven leadership and service. Additionally, membership in this prestigious organization will afford our students acknowledgement on their college applications, recognition during graduation, and eligibility for the NHS Scholarship Program.

Future updates and application information will be made available under the College Center’s tab in the coming months.
Positive Parenting Workshop

<b> Positive Parenting Workshop </b> School parent, Dr. Edrick Dorian, is a board certified clinical and police psychologist. On the morning of October 17, he took the time to present enlightening information regarding the dynamics of bullying inside and outside of the school context and how parents can best understand and curb bullying behaviors in children. In front of an audience of dozens of parents and school faculty and staff members, he identified crucial warning signs and raised awareness regarding resources that parents have at their disposal for additional information and assistance. We appreciate the efforts of our school counselor, Irina Stepanyan, and of course, Dr. Dorian, for putting together this timely and engaging morning presentation.

<b> ShakeOut! </b> Over 10,000,000 participants ducked, covered, and held on during The Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill, which took place at exactly 10:16am today (October 16). After our students, faculty, and staff got out from under their desks when all was clear, the entire school was evacuated into the playground. Each class checked and reported attendance. The entire process played out smoothly. Participating in such drills several times over the course of the school year will fully prepare our students and school employees for situations of natural or man-made disasters.
