Welcome Letter from the Principal - 08-07-2013
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatallah wa Barakatu!!
Happy Eid for you and your families. May Allah (SWT) accept our fasting, prayer, and our good deeds. Ameen
I would like to welcome you to the Annoor Islamic School (AIS). Alhamdulillah, AIS staff members are ready to welcome you and your children. They are dedicated to provide a unique, individualized, accelerated educational program that is shaped by Islamic values integrated with state curriculum preparing students for higher learning, leadership, service and community builders. AIS is a fully-accredited school by Kansas Department of Education. Students are equipped for tomorrow’s challenges and the Hereafter by practicing Islam and strong values through an enriched, integrated curriculum that fosters their development and empowerment to be productive Muslim American citizens.
Our students at AIS are engaged in reading, writing, discussing and hands-on quality teaching, utilizing critical thinking skills through advanced technology to enhance their learning. Please learn more about their teachers on our website at http://www.myannoor.org
. They will teach the content of state standards and 21st century skills.
Every student is a unique individual, who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere to grow emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. We believe all students can excel in an encouraging environment that welcomes and enhances confidence. Our goal is to make learning enjoyable, exciting and to help students meet their fullest potential. AIS is committed to high standards of students’ performance and dedicated to develop a productive environment to maximize learning experiences. It is our responsibility to work together to create an exceptional school environment where quality education is provided and technology is utilized. We implement AIS mission, vision, policies and always keep the doors open for parents to visit AIS where their best investment in life is nurtured. We have set three major goals to achieve students’ success: excellence in academic, building Islamic conduct and leadership.
More after-school teaching programs will be provided for our students as needed. We will continue providing Quran Memorization Hifz Program, just like years past. An advanced math program will be provided for middle school students. Students in 7th grade will be learning pre-Algebra and students in 8th grade will be learning linear Algebra.
The strategies utilized by AIS are aimed at providing your child with a world–class education that will prepare him or her with the skills and knowledge to make decisions, to be successful and open doors for choosing a college and/or career.
Finally, I invite all parents to be involved in their children’s education and always welcome them. We have to work together to empower our students to achieve academic success, all while building Islamic characteristics through quality education. I am looking forward to seeing your continued support, welcoming you to AIS, and getting your feedback. I look forward to great year with you and your child.
Fi Aman Allah
