Assalamu Alaikum dear Parents,


This past week has been once again very productive. TIA’s preschool has been growing to a point where we had to split the class into two: Prek3 and Prek4. We are renovating the bathrooms of the preschool portable and repairing some damage caused by a water leak. Students will be able to go back to their

classroom by the end of next week inshaAllah. A special thanks goes to the preschool and kindergarten

parents for their patience and understanding.


Coach Kazem Sabet, the NFL flag football commissioner at Merrimack Valley flag agreed to lead our

physical education program which will start on Monday. We are so excited to have him and look forward

to using his experience to give our students the best.


Our teachers and staff took the ALICE training with the Methuen police to prepare our teachers to

handle man made emergencies. They specifically addressed lockdown and emergency evacuation

of our students, teachers, and staff. Once the teachers and staff are ready, we will practice the lockdown procedure with our students.


I would like to thank our parents for supporting TIA through the school store. The teachers are very

excited and thankful for the monetary contributions they are earning through this program.

Thanks to all the families who have already participated in our SchoolStore program! We need everyone's help to make sure our teachers get the essential tools they need to help our students succeed.


If your family has not participated, there's still time! This is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products. Your child will receive a prize just for participating, and more prizes will be awarded when goals are reached.


Please help now. It really will make a difference.

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.

 

Grade 4 - Teamwork

Fourth graders participated in a Marshmallow challenge this week. Each group was given 20 minutes, 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, and one marshmallow to

build the tallest structure. The winning tower measured 20.4 inches. Students learned the importance of collaboration and teamwork through this activity.





 

KG - Anti-bullying

Since October is National Bullying Prevention Month, the kindergarten did “A Wrinkled Heart” activity. Kind words were said and a flower for the kind word was drawn by each student. Finally the heart looked pretty with all the flowers. Then each student said a mean word and for each mean word they folded the heart.





Finally it was all wrinkled. We discussed the effects that hurtful behaviors could have on someone’s heart, as the wrinkles never come all the way out. The ways students could demonstrate kind behaviors toward their peers and not cause wrinkles in other hearts were discussed.

 

Grade 3 Poem writing


Third graders studied poems this week. They read a variety of poems, listened to poems by Shel Silverstein (they really enjoyed the poem 'Sick'), and wrote their own cinquains, diamante poems, and shape poems.
