Happy Birthday, Carla!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

We wish Carla a Happy 14th Birthday! A USMA present of a dogtag (with a special message) was given to her today on behalf of the school. She is one of our most dedicated students who gives detail in all she commits to.

We also send a Special Thank You to The Rivera Family for the delicious sweet boost the children received! Each student was given a beautiful sprinkled cupcake after class, getting their appetites ready for the holidays!

If anyone would like to arrange a birthday surprise for their child, please make sure to pass by Mrs.Chung’s office beforehand to let us know. We will be happy to celebrate their special day!

Multicultural Events at Tradewinds Middle School

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Today at Tradewinds Middle School, three of our students [Garen Kalender (2nd Dan, 2nd Gup), Gevorg Mnatsakanyan (1st Dan Deputy 3rd), and Kyle Kennedy (Brown Advanced)] impressed their classmates in their Multicultural Event at School. These students were representing Korea and captivating everyone’s attention with their combination kicking and surprised the audience with their showcases of double metal nunchak techniques. Two of them have never even reached this part of the curriculum yet and did it amazingly.

Our Master Maria Zavalakos was in the audience and was invited by them to come and watch. She is very proud of these three students and the confidence it took for them to create their routine from scratch without any outside help including her own. Honestly, she was not sure what to expect and she loved it.
We look forward to seeing the progression of these three students not only in class but in their lives as well. If they keep up their hard work, they can achieve any goal they set their mind to.
