Marine Agazaryan, Advisor: I have been an AGM parent going on 4 years now. I have two boys at AGM Avak and Hovik who will be starting 1st and 2nd grades respectively. Last year was my first year as part of the PTO executive committee. It was honestly a pleasure to work with all the amazing women on the committee. It was a year of firsts and I know that this school year is going to be even better. I love having the opportunity to give our AGM kids a fun and engaging school year. It is a full feeling to work towards something that helps better our school and give lifetime experiences to our children.
