- Science Week
Starting the month of January our middle school students have been preparing for tomorrow's science fair. The first selection started in the classes and resulted in the following list of projects. Tomorrow the judges will determine the top projects in each grade level. The winners will be announced at the end of STEAM night on Thursday at 7:30pm. Good luck to all our students. STEAM night is an event for the whole family that includes hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. We are at full capacity, and look forward to meet all the participants on Thursday at 6pm. The event starts and ends in MCA Khadijah Banquet Hall. All the activities will take place in the GIS classrooms. Students in preschool to 5th grade are to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Sorry we cannot accommodate strollers. Thursday January 26 is a Spirit Day (no uniform) and the theme is all about STEAM - Mad Scientist, Technology Expert, Engineer, Artist, or Mathematician. High School students are being encouraged to come dressed as their favorite element from the Periodic Table! The students can be creative and bring the fun with them to STEAM Night. Students must follow all free dress guidelines. Last Thursday during the monthly Principal Forum I went over the results of the second iReady diagnostics test. I made a short (10-min) video for the parents to summarize our school results. It is very important to check your child's results and see how did s/he progressed so far this year. Please consider it as progress report for your child. It is also very important to ensure your child spend about 45 minutes every week practicing iReady lessons. Here are more general information for parents about iReady. Feel free to reach out to me, to your director or to your child's teacher if you need help with the iReady report. I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the month of January. This week was the start of the month of Rajab, and Ramadan will be here in no time. We have two important events coming up in February: 1) Open House Feb 3rd, and 2) Annual Banquet Feb 25th. Please join us and spread the word to your family and friends. May Allah bless the months of Rajab and Shaaban, and make us witness Ramadan! Ameen! Sincerely, Nihad Mourad
