Salaamun Alaykum.

Please note our school will be closed on Oct. 8 due to Thanksgiving public holiday …hope all have a wonderful long weekend. InshaAllah, classes will resume on Oct. 15.

MashaAllah, our Community Class, Grade 7 girls, and Grade11 boys did a wonderful play last Sunday as part of our Milad un Nabi celebration.  Many thanks to Sister Sadaf Athar Hussain for organizing the play and all our wonderful volunteers who helped with the event.

As a dedication to Prophet Muhammad (s) and Imam Jaffer as-Sadiq (a), we launched our charity campaign for this year which consists of each class collecting $520 in order to sponsor an orphan in Iraq; this translates to approx. $20 per student. InshaAllah, we’ll be able to start sponsoring orphans as each class has collected sufficient donations. Many thanks to all who have already donated.

This is the last weekend to sign up for Pizza program for Term 1 (Oct. – Dec.); see details below.

Charity Campaign: Sponsor an Orphan
We are very excited to launch our Charity Campaign for this year. Our goal is for each class to sponsor at least one orphan in Iraq.  The cost to sponsor an orphan for a year is $520, so this translates to a donation of approx. $20 per student. We will attempt to sponsor an orphan who is the same age as the students in the class, e.g., grade 1 to sponsor a 5 year old, grade 2 to sponsor a 6 year old, etc.  The organization will provide a profile of the orphan and updates so our students can connect and empathize with the orphan. Kindly support this initiative by sending a donation for this program.
Key Upcoming Dates
