PST - First General Assembly September 29th @ 3:45

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmetullahi wa baraakatuhu,

We pray that you and your families are having a pleasant and blessed fall season.

Research has proven that children benefit academically and emotionally when their parents/guardians are involved in their education. Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school and Abraar School welcomes this warmly.

This letter is a desperate call to Abraar Parents to join The Parents Support Team (PST). 

Current State of PST: 

Due to the lack of parent volunteers, the current PST will now cater to the activities of the Primary School only. The current team consists of the following members:

PST Elementary: (responsible for activities in the Fieldrow Branch)

Hot Lunch Program (October - December 2014)

Assalaamu Alaykum. 

The Hot Lunch Program at Abraar School is run by parent volunteers on The Parents Support Team (PST).  Its aim is to provide students with a nice hot lunch that they can enjoy with their friends, as well as to raise funds for fun school projects and events. 

In order to make things more efficient for all involved, PST sends out a lunch order form every 3 months for the whole school year.

Please note : Pizza Vendor for this year  is 1for1 Pizza(2900 Woodroffe Ave.)  and Fatayer from Al-Noor Bakery.

Order forms must be submitted to the homeroom teachers NO LATER than Wednesday Oct 1st  , 2014.  

The Hot Lunch team is time constraint with limited volunteers and follows deadlines strictly. Absolutely NO late orders will be processed.
