Welcome another year of Tigers Athletics. As we begin another exciting year at St. Mary’s Vahan and Anoush Chamlian Armenian School, I would like to thank you all for your support and commitment to our Tigers Athletics throughout the years.
As parents, teachers, staff or simply Tigers supporters, we are proud of our students as they dedicate and commit themselves to their chosen athletic endeavors.
Athletics: We have a very active athletics program. We currently have the following teams: Basketball, Soccer, Table Tennis, and Track & Field & Volleyball. By offering a wide variety of seasonal programs during each season, our students can find a place where they can apply their personal skills and talents as our institution continues its rich tradition. We encourage participation in athletics because it provides our students with important lessons for life such as teamwork, self-discipline, and dedication.
Physical Education: Our PE program encourages students to be active at school, develop healthy young bodies, which includes activities and cardiovascular work to improve coordination, flexibility and strength. Our goal through the PE program is also to work with students to enhance reflexes and motor skills. Our students are also introduced to different sports, games, activities and exercises they can use for the rest of their lives. Finally, our PE program helps our children develop socially as well. Children who are exposed to various types of sports develop team work, sportsmanship and other social skills. But most of all, we have some fun!
1st and 2nd grade have PE once a week, while 3rd and up 2 times a week. Students have PE outside or in the gym depending on the activity or the weather.
I look forward to getting to know all of you parents, students and future Chamlian Tigers!
