Yesterday the students each received a book titled 21 Duas for Children, they are expected to bring these books back to Sunday school each week. Parents, please assist the students in learning these dua and ensure that they bring the books back each Sunday. They have each put their name on the inside cover of the book, and at the end of the school year those will be theirs to keep. The kindergarten students did not bring those books home, but they do each have a copy at the school.
The k-3 curriculum is beginning to take shape, now that the books have arrived.
Iqraa – students are working both on reading and writing the arabic alphabet, we have added writing both to help with the memorization process and so that the students may benefit from homework.
