Teacher Appreciation Week

Sr. Barbara has asked that I share with you the breakdown for Teacher Appreciation Week which is May 1st-5th. Below is the sheet that was sent home with students on Friday. If you have any questions please contact Sr. Barbara (her contact information is on the bottom of the first picture).





Week of April 24

Happy Monday!


This Friday we will be heading to Washington D.C. to explore. I am just as excited as the students are. We will have an information session Monday evening from 4-5 p.m. where we’ll discuss the safety procedures, dress code and (of course) what we’ll be doing while we’re in D.C.

Also, interim reports went home on Friday. If your student is missing any work please don’t panic. Just have them complete the missing work and turn it into me. Anything is better than a zero!

As always, if you have any questions please let me know.

Week of April 17



Welcome back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing spring break. We’ve got a lot to do before the end of the school year but with a little determination I know we’ll be just fine. This Friday fourth quarter interim reports go home.

If your student is missing any work it is their responsibility to 1) figure out what they’re missing and 2) give the work to me.

As always, if you have any questions please let me know.

Week of April 3


Happy spirit week! Spring break is just around the corner which means this whole week is dedicated to school spirit and student appreciation. Spirit week will be hosted by Al-Iman’s student council with each day focused on a fun theme.

Here’s the breakdown for the week:

Monday- Book Character Day (come dressed as your favorite book character. No evil characters, please.) Student will also be receiving cards from their advisory group leaders.

Tuesday- School pictures will be taken this day so make sure you dress nicely! Also, al clothing needs to follow school dress code rules. Students will be treated to an ice cream party courtesy of student council.

Wednesday- Wacky Tacky Day (come dressed in your craziest outfit) Students will have their advisory groups during lunch and will receive cookies and milk during snack time.

Thursday- Pj/sports Day (whether you’d like to wear your pajamas, your favorite sports jersey or both—it’s up to you!) Today is “teacher’s choice” as to how students will be appreciated.

Friday- Hat day (sport your craziest hat or maybe your favorite baseball cap—it’s up to you!) Students will watch a movie during 6th & 7th period.

I hope everyone has a wonderful break. If you’re traveling I wish you safe travels. I have decided to reward the students for their excellent work of the past few weeks by giving no work over the break. However, I need all students to come back rested and ready to go as we make our final push towards the end of the year.

As always, if you need anything please let me know :)

Week of March 27

cat-presidentI hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It’s finally starting to feel like spring. ISF presentations begin on Monday and end on Friday. Students who miss their scheduled presentation time will have a chance to make it up during one of the “make-up” slots available on Friday.

For those that have yet to do so, please take some time to complete this survey. Your opinion and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

For anyone who might be wondering Spring Break is only 3 weeks away!

Report card went home today. Overall, I’m very happy with the students and their performance for this quarter. I know quarter four will be the toughest with spring fever just around the corner. As always, if you would like to discuss your student’s grade, performance or just want to chat please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Week of March 13

Good morning!


I hope everyone is enjoying their three-day weekend thanks to the teacher work-day this Monday the 13th. Friday was the end of the third quarter (I know, whoa) and report cards will be going home this Friday the 17th. Overall, I am impressed with everyone’s counted growth and can’t believe we’re about to enter the last quarter—time flies.

I am currently in the process of planning the middle school’s Washington D.C. trip and will have more information on what we’ll be doing soon.

As always, if you have any questions, concerns or just want to chat you know where to find me.

Week of Feb. 27

Thank you to everyone who came out for the fundraising dinner Saturday evening.


Both this week and next week students have a number of test, projects and quizzes due as we inch closer to the close of the third quarter (I can’t believe it!) I will also be absent Thursday and Friday as I head to the North Carolina Social Studies Conference. I’m hoping to bring back a number of interesting and fun ideas to my classroom.

As always, if you have any questions, you know where to find me!

Week of Feb. 20

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I’m thrilled that it’s starting to feel like spring so soon. All six classes are on schedule and I am happy to report that we are in the exact same spot as those in public school.


Students should be working on their ISF projects and I encourage anyone who is having trouble with the social studies aspect of the project to come and see me. I’m always happy to help!

Week of Feb. 13

Happy Monday, everyone!


This weekend student council delivered 200 kits to the homeless in downtown Raleigh. The students were able to interact with with the wonderful people we met downtown and were able to see how having access to basic necessities makes a huge difference to those in need.

If you have any questions about the interims that went home on Friday, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m always here to help however I can.
