Principal's Message

Dear Titan Families,


Welcome to the new school year!  I hope this message finds you safe and well, and that you were all able to relax, rest, and spend time with loved ones during these summer months. The 2020-2021 school year marks our 45th anniversary and a uniquely unprecedented chapter in the history of our school.


While this was not the way we anticipated beginning the school year, the entire AGBU MDS staff & faculty is ready and excited for the 2020-2021 school year to begin. Our dedication to providing our students with a memorable, interactive, and engaging learning experience has not changed. Together, I am confident that we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all. 


We have already experienced distance learning together, and we’ve used the summer months to build on that experience, make adjustments and come back better than ever. We’ve also used this time to ensure that our campus is safe, secure, and equipped with proper health and safety procedures and equipment.


Student success is attributed to the partnerships and relationships we build within our community. Parents and teachers, teachers and students, administration and teachers and so on. These bonds are now more important than ever. As the saying goes, it takes a village and here at AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School we truly value teamwork and collaboration! Parents, education is and has always been a joint venture. Now especially, your support and trust is greatly appreciated as we work together to ensure that our students are meeting their academic goals.


I would like to take a moment to emphasize that we are here for you. No matter is too big, or too small. We are here to support our students in every way we are able. Whether it be educational, social-emotional, financial, technology related, or simply as a shoulder to lean on, we are here for you and we will navigate these challenging times together.


Students, we have missed you more than you know. Without your laughter, voices, and presence to fill it, this campus is truly empty. I cannot wait until we are able to be together at school again. In the meantime I want to tell you how immensely proud I am of your resilience and grit. Keep working hard, your teachers are here for you, your administration is here for you, I am here for you, and we will do everything we can to ensure that you are happy and successful.


Seniors! Class of 2021! I know this is not the start to your senior year that you were expecting, but nevertheless we are going to make it a memorable and fun year for you all. You are almost at the finish line. These next few months are of the utmost importance. Study hard, remain focused, and finish strong.


We are blessed to have the most hard working and dedicated faculty and staff who have been working tirelessly to prepare for the 2020-2021 academic year.


Teachers, I know that getting to the first day of school has been a marathon, but we made it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your commitment to your craft, to your students, and to our school.
