On Saturday, February 3rd, the Kirikian Armenian School of St. Thomas Armenian Church held it’s annual Poon Paregentan party for its students. Every year, children, teachers, and parents look forward to having the kids change into their costumes after class and watch them take part of many festivities before the period of Great Lent.
Following classes on February 13, 2016, the Kirikian Armenian School Mother’s Committee hosted a Paregentan Party and Fair for its students and the students of the St. Thomas Chess Club. The children fully enjoyed the after-school party with their friends, and the parents took joy in seeing them have fun! Some children even wore costumes, and everyone had several chances at the various carnival-themed games to win tickets and prizes.
The February 6, 2016 Poon Paregentan Masquerade Party, hosted and meticulously prepared by the ladies of the St. Thomas Church Cultural Committee, was a resounding success! See all 50+ photos & video on the St. Thomas website at our Poon Paregentan photo gallery!
