Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,
Parents’ involvement in their child’s school is crucial for the growth and the
advancement of the school. Parents should feel that they are an important and integral part of TIA. Therefore, you should feel comfortable in sending feedback
and input regarding our school’s programs.
Usually, parents contact us when there is an issue or a concern which is welcome,
however, to keep the morale of our teachers and staff, it is as important to sometimes acknowledge the good things that happen at school. Sending an email, a personalized note, having your child write a thank you letter to the teacher will be highly celebrated and appreciated.
Another way to be involved is to send your suggestions regarding ways to improve a program suggesting new initiatives and send input on ways to support existing programs.
Best of all, be and stay engaged with what your child is learning, support your child’s teachers by letting them know that you are here and available to help and how you can help.

PIE Day Celebration
3.14 (March 14th) was the PI day and our students made a PI chain with the irrational numbers.
They also learned the concept of PI with a hands-on demonstration of comparing the apple pie with the size of a plate and understood that the circumference (the distance around the circle) divided by the diameter always has the value of pi and it doesn't matter how big or small the circle is, Pi remains the same. Students had fun enjoying and tasting the pie.
PK3 students had fun learning about spring and planted seeds for a hands on experience. They learnt about animals and made a trunk of the elephant to demonstrate their learning.
Masha Allah! Our little ones are getting ready for Ramadan and made little lanterns to take it home to Welcome Ramadan!
PK3 and PK4 students had their first outdoor pizza lunch together enjoying the beautiful weather and also made a beautiful snowman.
The Methuen Fire Department visited our school on Tuesday, March 15th. Students had fun exploring their gear and truck. The visit was very educational. It was a great live experience for the students to see and value the jobs of the community workers.
Grade 5 support for young learners
Prekindergartners and Kindergartens had fun listening to the stories read by Grade 5 students. This helps the older grade students in learning to be mentors to younger ones and helps younger students to show appreciation for the support they receive.
TIA was blessed to have a surprising visit by its alumni. They visited their childhood’s second home and indeed they enjoyed it. They visited multiple classrooms and recovered some of their joyful memories. Thank you TIA alumni! Keep up the good work.
Message from the Student Council
The Qur'an states, “(The righteous are those) who give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive".
Alhamdullilah with His grace, Student Council members served another dinner for the homeless at the Elliot Church in Lowell, MA. Masha Allah, with your support we were able to do it and help those in need.
Today, with your ongoing help chips and salsa program was a great success. May Allah reward you, guide your children and accept your deeds during these blessed days of Shaban.
