In an effort to spark students’ interest in spelling, Chamlian conducts an annual Spelling Bee competition open to students in grades 4 through 6. To begin, each classroom conducts an internal Spelling Bee, after which each teacher submits the names of three finalists to compete in the school wide competition.We are proud of our 35 finalists and the first place winner, Maria Miwalian, who will go on to compete in the LA County Spelling Bee on March 29, 2017.
3rd Grade participated in a planetarium show about our solar system given by one of the Glendale Community College astronomy professors. Our students also participated in activities to explain and illustrate force and motion.
In January homeroom teachers were given Kindness Jars to fill up with beans every time a student was caught doing a kind act. These jars were collected and the outcome was very positive with so many beans being collected in the jars.
The Glendale Fire Department has been proudly sponsoring the Junior Fire Program for 5th grade students in the city of Glendale. On February 8, 2017 Chamlian’s 5th grade students received a highly anticipated visit from retired Fire-fighter and Education Specialist at the Glendale Police and Fire Academy, Mr. John Wray, who presented the program to our students. Students learned about the fire triangle, emergency preparedness, fire safety rules, and a lot more.
