The 3rd Graders were reading buddies to our Pre-School and Pre-Kindegarten students. Books were chosen ahead of time and the 3rd Graders practiced reading the books and learned how to work with 3 and 4 year olds. Each 3rd Grader was partnered with a Pre-school or Pre-K student. They read to them, asked them questions, and later made Christmas themed drawings for their buddies to color. Holding hands, they went to the playground and played. It was a wonderful sight to see how our students are truly like Mesrobian brothers and sisters.

Come join us to support the Harout Hadjinian Memorial Breakfast at Golden Skewer Restaurant tomorrow from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Proceeds to benefit Mesrobian's
Music Education Program.
Christmas spirit at Mesrobian is obvious throughout the entire campus. To add to the Christmas spirit, the ASB organized a "Christmas Hunger Games" for 6th - 12th Graders. Each class chose a "tribute," who at the signal of the whistle ran out to get a bag of Christmas decorations, after which the students rushed upstairs to their homeroom classes to decorate. They had 50 minutes to decorate the classroom with whatever was in the bags. Some of the elementary teachers served as judges and the winning class was announced Friday morning. Congratulations to our 11th/12th Grade class for winning the contest.

As part of a Language Arts assignment, Mrs. Mustain's 4th Grade class has been writing letters to U.S. soldiers overseas. Our soldiers are in need of encouragement, especially during the holiday season, and our students are getting involved through Operation Gratitude. The students heartfelt thank you cards and drawings are being mailed this week. The assignment gave them the chance to express their appreciation and helped them learn a valuable lesson in gratitude.
Our ECE students celebrated Thanksgiving today by dressing as pilgrims and Indians as they had their own version of a Thanksgiving feast. They learned about friendship through stories and songs. They sat together and prayed for all they were thankful for before they enjoyed their meal.

The 8th Grade class walked from school to Montebello City Hall with their homeroom teacher, Berj Parseghian, raising over $300 for the Armenia Fund. They were greeted by the Honorable Jack Hadjinian, Mesrobian Class of '86, and City Administrator, Francesca Tucker-Schuyler, who immediately had students take the seats of city council members, simulating a council meeting. From there Captains Brad Keller and Luis Lopez gave our students a tour of the police department. They had the opportunity to sit in a juvenile holding cell and walk through the dispatch room. They were also shown the usefulness of city cameras by Officer Powers and Officer Ainilian, who is the father and father-in-law of two Mesrobian alumni.
Students were thrilled with their experience and were grateful to see the inner workings of their City Hall and police department.
