Assalamualaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatahu dear Parents!
In shaa Allah you all are doing well and enjoying the summer break.
Regarding the ISA Weekend school 2018-2019 School year, please note the following:
• Any returning students who have not registered and students new to the community may register on Friday, July 27th (after Jumuah in the Masjid Lobby). Please note that many of our upper level classes are full. If the class is at capacity, students will be placed on a waiting list.
• As many of you are aware, we have exhausted all available classroom space in the school building and Masjid. For this reason, we will not be able to accept class 1 students as part of our Sunday program (students who are starting KG in the fall).
Please know that we explored several options before reaching this difficult decision.
Alhumdulillah we will be offering a Friday evening program for these students. The curriculum will include learning basic Arabic letters, memorizing short Surahs from the 30th Juz and learning the Adhkar of prayer. The class time will be 6-8 pm in shaa Allah. Further details TBA.
Friday July 27th (after Jumuah): Registration for new and returning students.
Friday August 24th (evening): Open House
Sunday August 26th: First Day of School
Friday August 31: first day of Friday program (for class 1 students)
