Chamlian Celebrates May 28 Armenian Independence Day!

Chamlian students celebrated Armenian Independence Day today! Our students enjoyed an Armenian themed interactive kahoot game, a special May 28 themed virtual assembly featuring Tro Krikorian @trokrikorian singing patriotic songs, learned about and colored our beautiful flag, and even danced to Armenian music during recess and lunch. Our students are constantly inspired and moved to take their place in the future and continued development of the Armenian nation and people. We look forward to seeing their accomplishments for our Homeland always! 🇦🇲❤️💙🧡 #May28 #Մայիս28Շնորհաւոր #ChamlianArmenianSchool

Our Chamlian students paid their respects to the 1.5 million Armenians who perished during the Armenian Genocide of 1915 at our own Dzidzernagapert monument at Chamlian. Our students laid flowers at the monument, prayed, and listened to their teacher’s special words in commemoration of all our martyrs. Our students then reaffirmed their commitment and dedication to the Armenian cause, pledging to carry the torch of the undying Armenian spirit into the next generation as the future leaders of the Armenian nation. 🇦🇲#WeRememberAndDemand #RecognizeTheArmenianGenocide #ChamlianArmenianSchool
