Judy Seckler DOWNTOWN -- The Glendale Unified School District will be looking at its yearly Golden State Examinations report, which reveals greater student participation and improved scores over a five-year period. The first exams, given in 1987, offered only first-year algebra and geometry. Now, students can take exams in 12 subjects. The exams, given in the late spring, measure specific subject content, school board member Chuck Sambar said. The exam shows that a student learned what they were supposed to in an individual course.

District showing proper respect for revered holiday In Christian tradition, Christmas is one of the most important days for the faithful to reflect on their faith and the mission of the Lord. Armenia adopted Christianity as its official state religion in 301, making it the first Christian nation in the world. At the time, Christmas was celebrated Jan. 6, but Christmas in Rome was celebrated on Dec. 25, which coincided with a major pagan feast. The Armenian Church was not influenced by the Roman Empire's decision, and to this day, Armenians all over the world continue to celebrate the birth of Christ on Jan. 6. This day marks both the birth of Christ and his baptism.
