ARARAT ARMENIAN SCHOOL – STUDENT REGISTRATIONS

Ararat Armenian School of Ottawa has 2 teachers and 37 students between the ages of 5 and 14, divided into 2 classrooms. Due to the varying ages of the students, there is a need to create another class, acquire a third teacher, and divide the students into appropriate age groups. However, to acquire a third teacher, the school board requires that the total number of registered students must be at least 45. We are inviting parents who have children, or know of students in this age group (Kindergarden to grade 9) to please register them at our school by contacting either the Ararat Armenian School Teachers (araratarmenianschool@gmail.com) or the ACAO Executive (acao.acfo@gmail.com).
