Assalamu Alaikum dear Parents,
This week, the TIA family has been saddened by the passing of Ms. Aghareed’s mother in Egypt and Ms. Cudmore step grandfather (May Allah have mercy on their souls). Please accept our most sincere condolences and know that we are here for you.
I would like to thank all the families and friends who came to support TIA at the barbeque event. Special
thanks to the PTO officers Br. Alaa Abou Mahmoud, Br. Ahmed Fahmy, Br. Jaffar Ali Sharfudeen, Br.
Mohammed Rahman for initiating, organizing, and overseeing the much-anticipated event. The children
had a great time!
Special thanks to the parent volunteers who helped set-up, clean-up and who made sure that everyone
had a good time. The Homeroom mothers are a force to reckon with, mashaAllah! Cooking, baking,
serving the food and assisting with the fun activities.
Our teachers and staff who showed up and didn’t hesitate to sacrifice their weekend showed a
dedication like no other to their school. I look forward to many more events inshaAllah.
October 22nd: Early Release Day
Friday, October 22nd is a half day and will be dress-up day (nice loose fitting clothing). Please ensure that the Islamic dress code is followed.
No jeans, shorts, tight / short dresses or heels. Boys are not allowed to wear hoodies, jerseys, sweatpants or jogging pants.
Dismissal will be at 12:00 p.m. sharp. Please make arrangements to pick up your child(ren) on time.
October 29th: Full Day of School
Friday, October 29th, the early release day for the month of October has been changed to October 22nd due to ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) training program for the Staff.
So, October 29th will be a full day of school.
Extra Face Mask
Face coverings are essential to protecting children, keeping schools open and slowing the highly contagious coronavirus variant. So, students cannot come to school without a mask.
Students losing their masks or masks getting ripped off is inevitable. Parents are requested to send some stack of extra paper masks to keep in their desk for such occasions.
Indigenous Peoples’ Day
Grade 3 observed Indigenous Peoples’ Day by discussing how their land has historically been taken from them. Students identified traditional indigenous territories on a map of America and created "buffalo hide" paintings and talking sticks.
Students are being trained to lead Friday Jumma prayers along with giving Khutbah. This Friday, Grade 7 students prayed Jumma in their classroom. Rayyan Ahmed Siddiq gave Khutbah and led the prayer for the class, Masha Allah!
Staff Professional Development
On October 11th (Indigenous Day), TIA staff attended the training on
Crisis Management Plan in the morning.
In the afternoon they were also trained on CPR, First Aid and AED.
Pizza Lunch Program Volunteers
Thanks to all the parent volunteers who have been helping with the distribution of pizza to all the classes. PTO is still in need of parent volunteers to help with the distribution of pizza lunch for the forthcoming weeks on Thursdays from 11:45 am – 12:45 pm.

Thank you from PTO
Alhamdulillah, last Sunday, we had a very successful BBQ event; the first one we had in a long time. It was great seeing all the families who came today and the smiles on everyone’s faces.
We’d like to thanks everyone who helped make this a successful event. I’m sure I’ll miss someone if I try to mention everyone by name.
I’d like to thank our homeroom mothers who made a lot of delicious food and helped serve and sell the food.
I’d like to also thank the brothers who worked the grill today and tried to keep up with the food demand throughout the day.
I’d like to also thank the sisters who were selling tickets and managed the long lines of parents waiting to order their food.
And definitely all the brothers and sisters who helped setup and clean up before and after the event.
Finally, I’d like to thank the PTO officers who helped put put this together as well.
Jazakum Allahu khairan and looking forward to the next event
