LANGUAGE

Language is the foundation of one’s identity. The Armenian language program implements the communicative approach of teaching. The overall goal for our students is to develop oral and literacy skills in the Armenian language and to inspire in them the love for the Armenian language. Teachers, students, and parents collaborate to create opportunities for meaningful communication and engagement with the Armenian language.

HISTORY AND CULTURE

The goal is to instill the pride of the Armenian heritage in our students. Armenian history and culture solidify our students’ Armenian identity. Through interactive methods, such as drama and storytelling, teachers engage their students in learning not only the ancient history of Armenians, but also encourage students to learn about their own family histories.
Music

MUSIC

Learning Armenian songs and being part of the school choir is mandatory for all students. Music is part of our efforts to teach Armenian culture and the arts. “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” - Plato

1:30 - 2:30pm

Extracurricular activities (Dance/Drama, Chess, Drawing, and Sports) will start on November 2, 2019, from 1:30 to 2:30 pm, and will end on May 23, 2020.

DANCE/DRAMA

Dance and drama are part of our physical education program. This activity provides students the opportunity of speaking Armenian with like-minded peers. Students express themselves not only orally, but are also given the opportunity to enhance their non-verbal communication skills and refine their creativity. Furthermore, students learn public speaking skills and overcome the fear of performing in public.
Chess

CHESS

Chess develops logical and critical thinking of students and in turn, expands their capacity to learn. Students learn to concentrate, to be patient, to be courteous, to be responsible, to solve problems calmly, to build self-esteem, to experience the consequences of good and bad decisions, and to set goals and work towards accomplishing them.
Drawing

DRAWING

Students learn when they are interested and actively involved. Art classes expand imagination and provide students a space to interact with like-minded peers. Students are given the opportunity to learn about Armenian art and develop their own style of expression. Learning to draw is learning to see, understand and make sense of one’s environment.
Ball

SPORTS

This program is designed based on the interest of students. Students are given the opportunity to play organized sports, to learn to follow instructions, to compete fairly, to strengthen their muscles, to develop their endurance, to make new friends, and of course, to express themselves in the Armenian language through an activity that they are interested in.
