The 4th Annual Ferrahian Elementary Year-End Program was as colorful as ever. Our vibrant elementary students performed dances and sang in Armenian and English for their proud audience. Mrs. Adrinee Aroyan the Elementary School Director gracefully introduced the students and their performances throughout the evening. It was a phenomenal presentation on behalf of the elementary students and their teachers.
Following the Armenian and American national anthems, Principal John Kossakian gave an insightful speech on the importance of keeping Armenian children in Armenian schools, where at an early age they form bonds that last a lifetime and can make a difference in our community. Mr. Kossakian also made a reference to the outstanding improvemen’s made at the North Hills campus throughout the year. He emphasized the need and importance of keeping our students Armenian, and thanked all the teachers and staff for their dedication and support of our community.
The children’s true talent and dedication was shown through their graceful dance. Ms. Lilia Margaryan’s costumes and choreography were lavishly noticeable. Mr. Alfred Mardoyan had successfully taught the second, third, fourth, and fifth grade students several Armenian songs. The artworks exhibited around the auditorium were due to the hard work of Ms. Talin Ordekian, art teacher, who worked tirelessly with every grade in order to get each student’s work finished and posted.
The remarkable performance this year was the result of the instructors who worked around the clock to make sure everything was perfect, and of the students, who spent much time and effort practicing and memorizing various songs and choreography. Our gratitude goes out to the following individuals: Ms. Ordekian, art teacher, Ms. Lilia Margaryan, dance teacher, Mr. Mardoyan, music teacher and all the teachers for their hard work throughout the year. “This performance was a unique opportunity to showcase the cultural wealth of our community and the hard work of our students and teachers,” said Mrs. Adrinee Aroyan Elementary School Director.
