PTA Messages

AsSalaamu Alaikum Parents, Teachers, Staff, and Students.

This is the last PTA newsletter of the 2015-16 school year. Jazakum Allahu Khairan for all the support and help PTA has received this year. We couldn't have done it without you!

There are a few important messages below, so please take the time to read through.

School Supply Kits

You asked ... we responded! School supply kits are offered this year for all grades! Please place your orders on-line by June 10th. Ordering information was sent home with students. The school portal will be closed after June 10th and no additional orders can be placed.

Although we did our best to ensure all supplies were added, there are a few items that were not available to add to kits. Please double check what you order in the kits against the school website. For example, Preschool parents, craft sticks will need to be purchased in addition to the kit. Also, all parents will need to purchase the mandatory headphones shown on our school website.

NoorArt Online Book Fair

PTA coordinated an online Islamic Book Fair for Eman School.

Although PTA was really excited for this event, our school didn't respond with many orders. We would like your feedback ... Is an Islamic Book Fair something you are interested in? Do you feel you would prefer to see the book fair at the school rather than online? Please email to offer your feedback. It helps us plan for future events.

Big Blue Football Colts Camp

Thank you to all of you who helped make Colts Camp happen. Without the volunteers this event would have been canceled. Students, parents, and teachers really enjoyed the Camp! An animal show from Silly Safari was also scheduled the same day for PreK-1st grade. The students loved it and learned many interesting facts about animals.

PTA Membership

There are so many fun ways to be involved in PTA. InshaAllah we will see larger PTA Membership numbers for the 2016-17 school year. Please remember that all members have to re-register each year. PTA will have membership forms at Open House.

Suggestion Box

PTA has a suggestion box located just inside the main entrance at the Allisonville Campus. Comments, questions, or concerns can be left in this box. You may choose to do this anonymously. All information is kept confidential and shared by the PTA President with the School Board directly.

Meet the 2016-17 Eman School PTA Board Members

The 2016-17 PTA Board was recently elected. Thank you to all of you who voted and placed your confidence in the same group of us to handle Eman School PTA for a second year.
