Summer Time

Image result for summer

I can’t believe school is over and summer break is right around the corner. Alhamdulillah it was a good year. I am proud of all students achieving the goals set for them. Each student improved their scores from the Fall Map Test to the Spring Map Test at least by two or three points. Some students improved seventeen to thirty points, therefore students increased their knowledge and skills on the course standards through this year.

The next important steps for the students to consider includes starting to think about how to use their free time, especially summer break, to move forward with their goals. Summer break is also an excellent time for them to get a better idea of what they want to focus on in high school and in their future careers. Here are some options to help students get an idea of what they can do over summer break:

Volunteering:There are all kinds of volunteer opportunities in your community such as the public library, reading to children in a hospital.

Summer Camp: There are many summer camps available to student. Camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills.

I hope you all enjoy your vacations to the fullest. Everyone has worked hard this year and you really deserve it. Have a great time!! I hope you come back with recharged batteries next year to start a new phase of your learning.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) said:“The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhan is the fasting of Allah’s month of Muharram.”‘Ashura’a is the tenth day of Muharram and Tasu’a’ is the ninth day.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) about fasting the day of ‘Aashora’a said,”Fasting the day of ‘Arafah I hope Allah will expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it, and fasting the day of ‘Aashora’a, I hope Allah will expiate thereby for the year that came before it.” Narrated by [Muslim], and he said : “When the following year comes, Allah willing, we shall fast on the ninth.”

Dear Parents:

I am happy to welcome you to the 2017- 2018 School Year!

I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. I know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As a partner, I share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that I will do my very best to carry out my responsibilities. 

I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given.

3) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.

4) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.

 I am attaching a copy of my classl rules so that you and your child can review them together. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.

If your child should not follow the rules I will notify you immediately.

I thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
