Asalamu Alaikoum Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Staff,
“We are reaching the end of the Fall Semester in DASW, and we are very thankful to have had a great start for the 2012-2013 academic year. Read more
For your convenience, we have posted the DCA 2 as well as the December major events calendar on our school website. Please make sure you refer to it. Download it here.
Congratulations to the top five winners of the Qur'an Competition at the class level. These winners will advance to the next level of the competition, which is the school level, on December 11, 2013. Only the top 2 students from each grade will be chosen to represent DASW at the Inter-School Qur'an compeition to be held on January 25, 2013 at the North Zone campus. We invite all parents to attend our Qur'an compeition on December 11, 2013, which will start at 9:00 AM sharply, insha'Allah in the Masjid on the Men's side. We hope to see you there supporting your child and to congratulate their efforts in this great and heart-warming event. See list of students who advanced here.
Congratulations to our Girls Basketball team! The 3rd - 8th grade team who won first place in the Darul Arqam Schools Basketball Tournament. Masha'Allah, the girls continued their winning streak. Under the guidance of their coaches and the support of their parents, may they continue to dominate girls basketball. Our boys basketball team also participated in the Darul Arqam Schools Basketball Tournament. They played valiantly against DUA North and Everest, showing great improvement in their defensive tactics.
DASW has decided to enter the shutterfly.com classroom website contest where a minimum of 6 class websites must be created and have members that show evidence of activities and member engagement. We currently have seven classroom websites: Pre-K I, Pre-K II, KG A, KG B, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, and Sr. Ghalia's Qur'an classes. If you have any child in any of those classes, please make sure you visit the website often to check out the amazing new things your students are doing in school. If you are not yet a member, and your child is in one of those classes mentioned above, please communicate with the homeroom teacher to request access. For your child's safety, all classroom websites are private and viewing the websites are restricted to members only; teachers are the only ones able to add new members to the website, so please request to be added by your child's homeroom teacher.
On November 1, 2013, we had our very first Math and Science Parent Night, and masha'Allah we were so excited to see such great attendance by nearly all of our parents and students. Teachers prepared several math and science activities, puzzles, and challenges like the Egg Drop, Catapult, Bending Jewelry, Making Crystals, The Planets Song, Sock Matching, Card Probability, and many more. Parents worked side by side with their children in the activities. We also had a reading by the Principal, Sr. Rim, of the Math Curse, and we had a Bird Wing Clipping Demonstration by our very own Veterinarian, Dr. Fatima Khan. Finally, our PTA operated the Book Fair and opened it to the public. We would like to thank all those who made this night a success: our teachers, Office Administrators, PTA, Parents, Students, and especially our Governing Body Members who never hesitate to lend a helping hand.
To help us disiminate mass texts and alerts in a timely and efficient manner, especially in emergency situations, we have enrolled in a Mass Messaging and Alert System for all of our teachers and parents. To join this list to receive time sensitive alerts and reminders, please sign up with your cell phone. An information flyer was sent home with directions about how to join the group. If you are uncertain about how to join, or need assistance, please feel free to contact the main office.
