Parent Session on Jan 24th Next Saturday (3:45 to 5:00pm)

Topic: Boosting of Self-Esteem


Life brings with it many challenges that may lead to stress and frustration. Youth with healthy self-esteem are better equipped to overcome these challenges. Katy REC would like to invite the jamat to a Parent Session to discuss "Boosting Self Esteem in Youth". Come join the discussion tomorrow, Saturday, January 24th, 2015. The session will begin at 3:45 p.m. promptly. Refreshments will be served.


Pre K and KG parents can drop off students at 3:45pm in order to attend the session. REC will take care of student's until their classes start.

Lobby Noise before JK on Saturdays

At times, lobby area is very noisy (sometimes created by parents) before JK ceremonies on Saturdays. We request for everyone to please keep noise level down since ginan recitations are going on inside Jamat Khana.

Varo Opportunities on Saturdays

We will no longer be handing out varos per grades. If your son or daughter would like an opportunity to recite a varo in Jamat Khana on Saturday, please text or call Salima Fumakeya (281 705 9600). Once we've had a chance to hear it out, we will be able to give varos on Saturday.

Let's Look Inside 5th Grade

5th grades are acting as AKDN volunteers. They are coming up with housing projects for people living in 3 different geographical locations. They were only allowed to use local material to come up with a housing project considering design, architecture, protection from weather in order to improve the quality of life of the local people in that area.

Waiting to receive more info from Nirmeen about above projects

Thank You!!
