Glendale High School

Glendale's grocery stores were few and far between In the early 1900s. Although not much is known about the Verdugo Cash Store, pictured here, it stood on Verdugo Road somewhere near where Glendale High School now stands, according to a caption on the back of the original. From the picture, all we can tell about the Verdugo Cash Store was that it offered good service and advertised Peerless Poultry Supplies, Alsen Cement, and Schilling's Best. Although the "Glendale Community Book," edited by E. Caswell Perry and Carroll W. Parcher, has no information on the Verdugo Cash Store, it does include references to other grocery stores.

About 900 people were exposed to original student poetry, song and dance Wednesday at an Armenian Genocide remembrance ceremony at Glendale High School. The ninth annual Genocide Commemoration featured several performances produced and orchestrated by students from all of Glendale Unified’s high schools, as well as Toll and Wilson middle schools and Fremont Elementary School. “I want people to leave thinking, as a community we are united as young adults to stop genocide and crimes against humanity,” said Talar Malakian, a senior and president of the Armenian Club at Crescenta Valley High School.

For the small price of 12 songs, Glendale High School's chamber choir got free admission to "The Happiest Place on Earth" Friday. The 27 singers gathered in the school's choir room before getting on the bus to Disneyland, where they would perform a 23-minute program on the Plaza Garden Stage ? formerly the Carnation Stage. For 17-year-old Alexandra Nagy, singing to a passing crowd of tourists was second to enjoying the special access to the hidden parts of the theme park. "I get really excited about it," Alexandra said.

Glendale students and city workers are among the hundreds of thousands in Washington for today’s historic presidential inauguration. A group of 14 Glendale High School students made the trip with two of their history teachers, as did Fire Chief Harold Scoggins, who said the opportunity of seeing Barack Obama sworn in as the nation’s first black president was too momentous to miss. “When you think of the significance of this, the first African-American president, that can only happen once,” Scoggins said from the nation’s capitol Monday.

The excitement of three Glendale High School students is almost palpable as they wait to find out if they’ll be chosen to dance in a Jennifer Lopez music video. Anna Avagyan, Violet Ismailyan and Arpi Takhmasyan are among 10 dancers from across the country competing in an online video casting call, Secret’s Show Us Your Moves. “Wow, it feels really great,” said Violet, 16. “I’m really excited about it and I hope I get to work with her.” Entrants were asked to submit a 30-second video online of them dancing, or they could go to the live auditions held in Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Miami, Las Vegas or Dallas.

Youth may be wasted on the young, but talent isn’t — at least it wasn’t at Glendale High School’s annual variety show on Friday night, where student singers, dancers and musicians converged onto one stage to exhibit their skills. More than 25 students’ acts, ranging from belly dancers to solo drummers took part in this year’s show, which was organized by the school’s dance and drill team for the eighth year in a row. The show is a way for the dance team to try out their routines with an audience, and a way to showcase the talents of other Glendale High School groups, said Kelly Palmer, the director of the drill and dance team.

GLENDALE ? The needs of English-language learners were the focus of a hearing on Wednesday as State Deputy Supt. of Instruction Bill Padilla visited Glendale High School to hear public comment on ways to modify the No Child Left Behind Act. Padilla held the hearing as part of a series of open forums designed to gather suggestions that state officials can take to Congress as it considers reauthorizing the act next year. No Child Left Behind, enacted in 2001, sets federal accountability measures for schools, including stiffer requirements for assessment tests.
