    Dear Parents, Assalamu Alaikum

    Please note that there will be no school for the next couple of weeks:

    NO SCHOOL – Nov 27th – Thanksgiving Break

    NO SCHOOL – Dec 6th – Parent Teacher Conference

    Although there are no classes on Dec 6th, the Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Saturday, Dec 6th at ICN Ogden. Jazakallah Khair for all parents who signed up – please adhere to your appointment time.

    Alhamdulillah, we had a good turnout last week at the ICN AFA Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) meeting. The PTO will be helping AFA on special school projects and other activities. All parents are welcome and encouraged to join the PTO team, please contact pto-team@icnschool.com if you have any questions.

    Please login to CMS website to check weekly class update and homework. If you have any login issues/questions, please email: cms@icnschool.com

    Alhamdulillah, we are pleased to announce a special session called Tahara Tidbit – by Shaykh Ahmed Saeed to teach students the proper way of performing tahara, wudu and salah.

    We have extended the registration for “The Salah Connection” program – deadline to Thursday, November 27th since we want all students to participate. The program will be held on December 13th and Registration is REQUIRED to participate in the program: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

    The goal of the program is to motivate students of 1st Grade to Youth Program (Grade 8 & above) to memorize the translation of all recitations of the Salah. When we make Salah, it is so important that we understand what we are saying to develop a firm connection with Allah (SWT).

    We have compiled a packet that includes all the postures of salah, with the Arabic text and the English translation. Every student is encouraged to memorize the translation of the salah and will be awarded exciting prizes as follows:

    • Category Gold: Memorization of translation of Complete Salah
    • Category Silver: Memorization of translation of postures 1-7 of Salah
    • Category Bronze: Memorization of translation of postures 1-3 of Salah
    • Prizes include iTunes and Toys R Us gift cards; cash prizes.

    We highly recommend you to work with your child and help/him memorize the translation for a better understanding of the salah and develop a strong and sincere connection with our creator.

    Curriculum Day – Parents’ Attendance Required

    Dear Parents, Assalamu Alaikum

    The ICN Al-Falah Academy is committed to maintaining effective communication between parents and teachers regarding your child’s education. One of these means is the Curriculum Day – a very important event for parents where you will be presented details on what your children will be learning this year.

    Curriculum Day 2014 will be held THIS Saturday, November 1st based on the following schedule:
    10:10 am – 10:40 am (Forum Room) – Pre-K to 3rd Grade
    10:50 am – 11:20 am (Forum Room) – 4th Grade to 7th Grade
    11:30 am – 12:00 pm (Forum Room) – Youth Program

    Please Note: Regular classes will be held for the students during the Curriculum Day Program.

    With Halloween around the corner, there are always questions in Muslim parents’ minds on what we should do.
    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for those under your care. A man is a shepherd, and he is responsible for those under his care. The woman is a shepherd in her husband’s household and she is responsible for those under her care.” [Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim].

    Here is a good article for Muslim parents with tips on how to talk to their children about Halloween:

    Principal’s Welcome Message

    Dear Parents and Students,

     

    Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatahu

     

    Sub’hanAllah, summer break has flown by and it is once again time for the ICN Al-Falah Academy school year to begin! This year, we are determined to impart education in a way that our students complete the school year transformed…into better Muslims as well as better human beings. With qualified teachers, Huffadh, ICN Al-Falah Academy graduates, and the involvement of local Shuyukh, the ​ICN ​​Al-Falah Academy team is confident that come next June, we will have a batch of well-informed, independent, and steadfast students, InSha’Allah. 

     

    To achieve this mission, we first and foremost ask Allah (SWT) to keep our intentions sincere and bless our work. Secondly, it is important to recognize that education and transformation begin at home and therefore, parent cooperation is extremely critical. In addition to being a part of your child’s educational experience, you are encouraged to communicate with the teachers and in order to facilitate this, we will be conducting Parent-Teacher Fee​d​back Conference Calls on a quarterly basis. Finally, we will continue to prioritize the continuous improvement of the classroom experience, adding new programs such as Quran Quest and continuing our successful activities such as Salah Connection and Pearls of Action. 

     

    We thank you sincerely and as always, we genuinely welcome feedback. Please keep ICN Al-Falah Academy in your du’as and we look forward to working with you and your child this year.

     

    JazakAllah Khair and Happy New School year!

     

    Kashif Fakhruddin
