-Water Bottles: Lately, unfortunately it seems that some parents/students are relying on the school to provid their children with water bottles on a daily basis. We see some children are coming to school with no water bottles everyday. This in turn led the office to ran out of water bottles and to not be able to provide water to those students who really forgot on occasions. The school's concern is not only about the cost of the water but more importantly is about not having the manpower to go and get water boxes every two days due to the increase of water bottles consumption. We need parents' cooperation in making sure to send water bottles with their children (including the high school students). The water bottles in the scool office are for those students who occasionally forget to get their water bottles.
-Scantron Testing: Insha Allah, the fall Scantron testing will continue next week for the elementary students after we finished the ones for the middle school last week. Elementary students' Parents, if you can send your children with their prsonal headphones for the testing, that will be safer. We will let you know when the results will be availble to the parents soon.
