Assalamu Alaikum dear Parents,
Alhamdulillah today marks the end of the first quarter of school and the end of the marking period. Please do not wait until the day before or the day of the closing of the marking period to contact teachers about your children’s’ grade. Instead, we would like you to be proactive and be in touch with the teachers on a regular basis.
This quarter, we have faced multiple challenges, some academic, some due to covid and some
Academic issues are the norm in any school, and we tackle them as they arise. TIA is not
stagnant when it comes to its programs. We are continuously reviewing and improving
programs. We are right now focused on improving Quran memorization and each student will
soon receive a Quran folder where the assigned Hifz is laid out on a weekly and daily basis. This
way, the parents are aware of what their child is memorizing and can help them memorize
ahead of time.
The TIA family who was struck with Covid is recovering nicely and is doing much better. Our
student remained asymptomatic. Because of all the precautions TIA is taking in the fight against
Covid-19, and because of your vigilance in keeping your children home when they are sick, we
were able to contain the spread of the virus.
After extensive renovation, the Pre-K portable is finally ready. On Monday, the portable will
require extensive cleaning. We request Pre-K parents or anyone who is available to lend a hand
to sister Fatima to clean the portable. Please let me know whether you can help by sending me
I would like to remind everyone to respect the dismissal rules for our children’s safety. There
were a couple of incidents where some parents got impatient and drove off when the teacher
was still holding the STOP sign. I know that sometimes the lines do not move as fast as you
would like them to but rest assured that we do everything we can to send the students out.
If you are in a hurry, we can make special arrangements for you to park on the side and once
you pick up your child you will be able to exit without having to wait for the rest of the row. We
just ask you to contact us and let us know.
Jazakum Allah Khair
