The New Mesrobian School: A Promise For Change, Transformation And Excellence

Mesrobian students on the first day back at school

PICO RIVERA,Calif—The Armenian Mesrobian Elementary and High School of Pico Rivera opened its school year last Thursday, September 1, 2011, under the auspices of Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate of the Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Present at the Opening Day ceremony were the students, parents, benefactors, the school faculty and staff, guests, as well as representatives of community organizations.

The message for this year’s opening day constituted the promise of change and transformation to achieve excellence.

The faculty and staff at Mesrobian School are excited to welcome students to fulfill the promise of excellence. The school structures are already renovated. This will be the year of change and transformation inside the classroom. The guarantors for the success of this task will be the newly retained highly qualified teachers, along with the school’s veteran faculty members.

As the school’s Principal Seto Boyadjian, Esq. stated: “This year our focus will be on improving academic achievement to prepare students for the challenges they will face in college and the workforce. We plan to provide engaging instruction in every classroom. Our priority will be to incorporate technology in the classroom so as to arm our students with the skills they need to succeed. We are confident in our promise to bring change and transformation into our classrooms, because we now have the academic potential. Just take a look at our faculty and staff.”
