Chamlian Armenian School Pioneers Virtual Summer Programs For Students!

Chamlian Armenian School officially launched the Chamlian Virtual Summer Programs in order to ensure students remain mentally and physically active throughout the summer!

As summer approaches, many of you have expressed interest in programs that will allow for our students to remain active, both physically and mentally, via a virtual platform. While summer is a time for students to take a break from the rigor of their daily classes and structured schedule and have a chance to relax, we also want to provide them the opportunity to explore, learn, create and remain engaged! These classes also allow parents to set a structure and schedule for the day.

Chamlian provides many options which are both fun and enriching for our students. The Chamlian Virtual Summer Programs reinforce our passion of encouraging our students to take their learning skills from the classroom and apply them to sports, design thinking, technology, writing, and much more - all from the comfort and safety of your home! We have set up various programs for our Chamlian students to choose from. All Chamlian Virtual Summer Programs will be conducted on the Zoom platform.

For more information, please click the 'students' tab on our homepage and choose the link 'Chamlian Virtual Summer Programs'.

Kindergarten Embarks On A Virtual Field Trip To The San Diego Zoo!

Our Chamlian Kindergarten Program constantly takes learning beyond the classroom! Nothing can stop our young explorers from exciting new adventures throughout which they learn about the world around them. This week our kindergartners went on a virtual field trip to the San Diego Zoo. Seeing various different animals in their virtual platforms, they will use this experience as research to write a Research Report during their Writing Workshop class. They’re favorite animal, you ask? None other than a TIGER of course! #SanDiegoZoo #VirtualTour #VirtualFieldTrip #Kindergarten #ResearchPaper #ChamlianFamily #ChamlianPride

Chamlian Family Meets Author Mr. David Kherdian & Illustrator Mrs. Nonny Hogrogian Virtually!

Chamlian students, parents, and teachers had the unique opportunity to meet with the celebrated and accomplished Armenian-American couple, David Kherdian and Nonny Hogrogian. Mr. Kherdian, a Newbery Award winner for The Road from Home, has written poetry, novels, biographies, and retellings including the epic David of Sassoun.
Ms. Hogrogian is a two-time Caldecott Award winner for her work in illustration including One Fine Day, a popular picture book. In her book The Contest, she depicts the rich heritage of the Armenians through her colorful illustrations.
We enjoyed a reading of their story, By Myself, and a poem about Mr. Kherdian’s childhood. Our Chamlian students took advantage of this rare occasion to ask thoughtful questions and the artists responded to each in a heartfelt way describing the process of creating their work.
We are certain that this visit from two treasures of the literary world will remain our students forever. Thank you Mr. David Kherdian and Mrs Nonny Hogrogian! #Author #Illustrator #ArmenianAmericans #ChamlianReads #AnitaTorosianLiteracyAndResourceCenter
