Armenian Independence Day Festival 2015

On Friday, September 25, 2015, the AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School's Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) hosted another sold out event celebrating the 26th anniversary of Armenia's independence. Throughout our 40 year history, we at AGBU MDS have watched Armenia's historic transition to an independent nation. Alongside our global diasporan community, we are committed to supporting Armenia as it progresses through the challenges of nation building. From preserving a rich and ancient historical legacy to supporting the development of the Nagorno Karabagh Republic to investments in education, infrastructure, health, and beyond, Armenia's achievements in the past 26 years have been tremendous. And we will stay engaged as Armenia faces many challenges in developing its economy and civil society.

We wish especially to thank the PTO for their exhaustive efforts producing this year's marvelous event, the faculty and staff for their commitment and participation, and the MDS families for their enthusiastic support.

A.G.B.U. Manoogian-Demirdjian School Appoints Mrs. Arpi Avanesian-Idolor as Principal

The Board of Trustees of the Armenian General Benevolent Union Manoogian-Demirdjian School is proud to announce the appointment of Mrs. Arpi Avanesian-Idolor as the new Principal of AGBU MDS. Mrs. Avanesian-Idolor will succeed retiring Principal Mr. Hagop Hagopian, who has successfully led the school for 29 years.

The Principal Search Committee embarked upon an open and transparent process which included town hall meetings with parents, students, and teachers to identify a new leader who exemplifies the characteristics and qualifications valued by all the stakeholders of the school. Mrs. Avanesian-Idolor stood out as the best candidate. She has over 15 years of professional experience as an administrator and educator, including teaching and administrative experience ranging from preschool to high school. For the past six years, Mrs. Avanesian-Idolor has also served as a Board Member and Chairperson of the Education Committee of the TCA Arshag Dickranian Armenian School Board. Since 2007, she has served as the Executive Director of the private Los Angeles Family School where she has been responsible for the day-to-day operations of the school, including curriculum, admissions, policies and procedures. In her new role, Mrs. Avanesian-Idolor will oversee and manage the preschool, elementary and high school divisions of AGBU MDS.

“I am looking forward to being able to contribute to a school with such a long-standing history of excellence, collaborating alongside an accomplished community of educators,” said Mrs. Avanesian-Idolor.
