Assalamu Alaikum dear Parents,
Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajeoun, we present our sincere condolences to Elfahal's (school committee member) family for the passing of her brother in London, and to Zitounia’s (KG assistant) family for the passing of her brother-in-law in Morocco. May Allah have mercy and rahma on them. Ameen.
I would like to thank our parents for being supportive and understanding through the Covid crisis at TIA.
We sincerely wish a prompt recovery for the family.
Portable 3 (PreK 4) is getting a face lift as both bathrooms as well as the sink area have been gutted out
to the bone and are being remodeled. Work is scheduled to end by the end of next week.
November 5th is the end of the first marking period. Please take time to login into Jupiter and check
whether your child has missing assignments. If so, please reach out to the teacher to discuss whether
your child will be able to make up the work.
The Door Fall Decorating Contest is underway at school. Classroom doors will be decorated by the
students based on fall themes. Students and their homeroom teachers have started brainstorming ideas
and if you would like to help your child’s teacher, please reach out to her. Judging will be on November
12th inshaAllah. I can’t wait to see what the students will come up with!

Grade 2 Islamic Studies
Grade 2 learned how we shouldn't celebrate anything but our religious celebration (2 EIDs). As we learned that Halloween is a pagan celebration from a very long time ago., instead of having free candy we can earn better rewards by helping the poor and the needy and putting a smile on the faces of our brothers and sisters in humanity. We helped Student Council collect canned goods for our food basket and we had chocolate too.
End of Daylight Savings
Fall Back! Please note that Daylight Savings Time will end Sunday, November 7th . Please remember to set
your clocks back one hour before going to bed on Saturday
Students are being trained to lead Friday Jumma prayers along with giving Khutbah. This Friday, middle school students prayed Jumma in our TIA prayer room. Mohamed Elkoudi
gave Khutbah and led the prayer for the group, Masha Allah!
As the weather is getting colder, your children might need a sweatshirt (Uniform colors only – white or navy) to wear it inside the classroom and jackets (any color), hats or gloves to wear outside during recess time. Please be sure to dress them adequately to keep them from getting sick.
Also, please make sure that the students are adhering to the uniform policy (navy blue or white shirts or polos and navy blue pants, navy blue jumpers for girls) of our 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.
Student Council's Food Basket Drive
Student Council of TIA is organizing a Food Basket drive for the needy ones. Donation of different types of pasta, rice, and canned goods are welcome. No large rice bags, as individual baskets of items will be put together in the basket.
Items can be dropped in the bin by the school foyer or
in second grade classroom. Items will be collected until Friday, November 19th.
