Last Week Swim Went Great!

As-Salamu Aleikum wa Rahmatullah,
just a message to let all parents know that last weeks swim went very well. The pool entrance is so close to the school that students are outside for less than one minute. So as long as they always bring their hats they should be okay in the colder winter months. It is also very warm inside the pool area.
A big thank you and jazakalakhair to all the parents who volunteered their time and helped make it a success!
Teacher A'isha

A Message from Arabic Teacher Salam

السلام عليكم :

انتهينا من جميع أنشطة الحج و العيد ، أعاد الله علينا هذه الايام الفضيلة بالخير و البركات ، كما انتهينا من وحدة ما أجمل العيد ، تعلم الطالب من خلالها العديد من المفردات و التراكيب اللغوية ، كما تعرف على بعض القيم الايجابية التي نحرص عليها في العيد  مثل :  لبس الملابس الجيدة ، صلاة العيد و فرحته ، و أهمية تبادل التهاني مع الاهل و الاصدقاء .

تم تقويم الطالب على وحدة ما أجمل العيد من خلال : نشاط صفي تحريري ، الاملاء ، مستوى القراءة الصحيحة للطالب المعتمدة على التهجئة و التقطيع الصحيح للكلمة ، فهم الطالب و استيعابه لموضوع الدرس . و الحمد الله كان النتيجة مرضية لمعظم التلاميذ .

مرسل مع الطالب اليوم كراسة الاملاء ، و ورقة النشاط الصفي .. الرجاء الاطلاع و التوقيع عليهما ، و ارسالهما غدا مع الطالب الى المدرسة ..... و جزاكم الله خيرا

Tip for Thursday Nov. 6th Swim Date

As-Salamu Aleikum wa Rahmatullah Parents,
I wanted to share with you a quick tip that I read in Principal Saleem's Wednesday letter.
For the days that students will be going swimming please put their swim clothes on under their uniform. This should limit the time it takes to get ready for swimming.
