Glendale High’s PTSA President Karen Veloz recaps December’s joint PTSA meeting with Wilson Middle School and representatives from Roosevelt Middle School which is hoping to start a PTA unit. “Glendale High showcased a few programs such as the Jazz Band and Cosmetology School,” she reports. The meeting also acknowledged student awardees in the GHS Reflections Program: Visual Art — Alex Avagimian; Photography — Mane Avagyan, Vanuhi Vartanian, Gladiola Pelayo, Seth Coffman; Literature — Adrine Shahnazaryan, Nasrin Jafari, Anahit Sargsyan, Jamil Vargas; Dance Choreography — Christian Davis, Shelby Henderson, Martin Hechanova, Allina Urumieh; Musical Composition — Alex Choi, Justin Llamas, Shushanik Gabrielyan, Frank Mezzatesta. Parents, students, and teachers of the GHS community who have served the school and students in a noteworthy way were honored: Stephen Sie, Nareg Ghazikhanian, Christa Bretz, and Karin Bashin.

Veloz adds that the PTSA will send representatives to the Sacramento State Legislation Conference in February. “Our goal is to be educated about the issues our government faces as they relate to our children and what part as parents we can play in affecting an outcome that benefits their welfare and safety,” she said. “Our theme this year is ‘Every Parent Involved’ and we hope to find ways to accomplish just that.”
