LITTLE ARMENIA—Pilibos Armenian School Principal Dr. Dorian always says, “Without teachers there is no school.” This year at Rose and Alex Pilibos Armenian School, this was reaffirmed as the dedication and efforts of teachers, administration and staff shined in one of the school’s most spectacular performances yet: “Dare to Imagine: A Tribute to the Beatles.”
The school’s elementary teachers truly went above and beyond the call of duty in organizing and coordinating this event. The teachers, through their creativity and special talents, taught students how to dance, sing songs and put on a grand production. Beatles facts and history were presented in Armenian, while songs and dance were performed in English. It was a colorful evening filled with costumes from the 60’s and 70’s transporting the audience to a different era.
Every seat in the Nerses Tashdjian Gymnasium was occupied by parents and grandparents, many of whom had taken time off from their busy schedules, all became completely captivated and entranced in the performances of the students. At the end of the program, the elementary students were joined by the preschool toddlers and students, together singing and dancing with a united and unparalleled Pilibos spirit!
The collaborative effort of Pilibos’ elementary teachers and all of its students is truly commendable and deserves all the accolades.
