Arrival/Dismissal

All students must be present for assembly by 10:45am and be in their seats, ready to learn by 10:50am.  Tardiness will not be accepted, unless there are emergency circumstances. If there is an unavoidable delay please contact the school (here) to let the teachers know.  Parents must drop-off their children quickly, safely and orderly to avoid creating traffic and/or delay.

Dismissal is at 1:15pm.  Parents must pick-up their children on time and in the same orderly fashion as arrival. Teachers will make sure that each child is picked up before they leave the masjid.

Absences

We understand that absences can happen for a variety of reasons. However, parents MUST email the school (here) to report an absence. We need this for the principal and teacher to be on the same page and so the teacher can let the parent know what the student will miss that day.  Students must avoid too many absences because that will cause them to fall far behind class and making it very difficult for them to catch up.

Curriculum

Assirat Academy is committed to providing a quality hands-on education in an environment that promotes learning. The curriculum is structured in a way that helps students develop strong leadership skills and learn Islamic principles that they will apply in their everyday lives. Teachers and students work collaboratively to help achieve these objectives. Questions or concerns about the curriculum may be brought up to the attention of the administration (here).

Assessment

To maximize student learning, it is extremely important that each child be placed at the appropriate level.  To achieve this, the administration and staff will set up a time to assess each child’s skills with respect to Arabic, Quran Reading, and Islamic Studies. Based on the results of the assessment, each child will be assigned a grade level that best fits his/her needs. Assessments will take place prior the first day of school determined by the principal.

Homework

Homework is an opportunity for students to take what they have learned in the masjid and to apply it to assignments and projects. Doing homework regularly and completely will help your student develop a good understanding of what the teacher is teaching in class. Assignments and projects are to be finished and turned in on time. Parents can ensure their child succeeds in class by making sure they do their homework. If you have questions about homework or projects, feel free to e-mail the principal (here).

Physical Activities

Physical and hands on activities will be scheduled on a term-by-term basis.
