GLENDALE—Students, parents and faculty at Chamlian Armenian School celebrated the centuries old traditions and heritage of the Armenian people on Sunday, November 7 during the school’s annual Cultural Day celebration.
Chamlian’s Armenian Cultural Day showcases the school’s dedication to the preservation and promotion of the Armenian culture and heritage.
This year’s event included four sets of performances in the school auditorium. The dedicated teachers in the Armenian Department worked diligently to prepare their students for their performances. The program consisted of singing, dancing, recitation, short-plays, and a performance by the school choir. In addition, 60 adorable first graders presented traditional Armenian costumes from various regions in Armenia.
Guests spent their time in the carnival-like atmosphere outdoors enjoying Armenian cuisine, boutiques, and music. This event was entirely sponsored and organized by the Armenian Department and the Chamlian Parent Support Committee.
This year’s Cultural Day will be remembered for a long time to come, and the efforts of our hardworking teachers and parents are greatly appreciated.
