Asalaamwalaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
Dear Parents, Welcome to Kindergarten 2020-2021!
I pray this letter finds you in best state of health and Iman. Welcome to Abu Huraira Academy. My name is Sr. Warda Ahmed and I am extremely excited to be working with you and your child in Kindergarten this year. Although this year will look different given the COVID-19 regulations, but we are committed and hopeful to make it a joyous, safe, and thriving learning experience for the Kindergarteners. We have done everything we could as a school to prepare a safe learning environment for our students and by Allah’s mercy and your partnership, we are certain we will find this year to be a fulfilling year inshaAllah.
As the home room teacher for kindergarten, I will be working extremely hard to establish our classroom as a happy, fun, challenging, comfortable and safe learning environment where we all do our best. However, you and your child will be working equally hard to make this year a successful and rewarding experience. I encourage you to please take the time to sit down with your child and discuss what they are learning and reinforce that learning at home regularly.
I believe that each child brings their own unique talents, experiences, and personality to share in our classroom. I look forward to learning with your child and sharing curriculum with them that is enriching and sparks their interest. They will be provided with instructions and learning resources on the core-subject areas of English/language, arts, math, social studies, and science. The students will also have core learning on physical ed, and Islamic etiquette’s teaching embedded within their kindergarten education on daily basis inshaAllah.
Important information: Since we are all are working towards the same goal; it is important for us to communicate often. I will send weekly updates on ClassDojo and Google Classroom. Kindly sign up to be on ClassDojo, our school admin Sr.Urusi (firstname.lastname@example.org), can assist you with that. Please make sure to download the app meanwhile. Please get in touch with me before school starts for any important information I should know related to the student’s health or learning needs that you might see as crucial for us to know as a school. You can find me on ClassDojo or email me at email@example.com
For those students that have opted online learning, we have a package with all their learning material that needs to be picked up before school begins on September 14th . We have left the package for the students with their name at the school on a desk by the admin office-please drop in to pick that up and if any questions please call us. The school number you can reach us at is 1-647-509-2422.
If you would like to speak to me, please contact me via class dojo, email, or phone. If needed, please arrange for in person-meeting before hand as we can not have drop-in meetings this year. Please note below are the items each student should have in their bag daily:
• 2 face masks • A small prayer mat (kids size) • Snack • Lunch • Water bottle • Pull ups unless they are fully trained to use the toilet • Extra pair of clothes and socks • Comfortable indoor shoes • Any medical devices/supply the student requires (if applicable) • Please refrain from sending any personal belongings with the student outside the above list.
ATTENTION ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY
-Please come to school to pick up the student packages on Friday September 11th or Monday September 14th inshaAllah. Each child has a labelled student container with their school resources.
-Please save your zoom link for your class attendance. (Located in Google Classroom)
I look forward to a blessed, safe, joyous year with you and your child at AHC bithnillah. Please feel free to get in touch with me if I can be of assistance or if you may have any inquiries.
