Aya of the Week

The commandment of Allah will come to pass, so seek not ye to hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate (with Him). (1) He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His command unto whom He will of His bondmen, (saying): Warn mankind that there is no God save Me, so keep your duty unto Me. (2) He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth. High be He Exalted above all that they associate (with Him). (3) He hath created man from a drop of fluid, yet behold! he is an open opponent. (4) And the cattle hath He created, whence ye have warm clothing and uses, and whereof ye eat; (5) And wherein is beauty for you, when ye bring them home, and when ye take them out to pasture. (6) And they bear your loads for you unto a land ye could not reach save with great trouble to yourselves. Lo! your Lord is Full of Pity, Merciful. (7)

Importance of Home-School Communications and Outreach Activities
Parent/guardian-school communication is an integral part of the education process. Unless parents/guardians, teachers, and principal are mutually cooperative, the supportive environment necessary for optimum learning is denied to the child. The school recognizes that parents are partners in the education process, and that parents have both the right and the responsibility to share in decisions about their child’s education and development. Furthermore, parents are given the opportunity to participate in the out reach activities provided by the school, Islamic Society of Milwaukee and other local organizations. These activities are intended to support, nurture and instruct parents in their role as the primary educator of their children.
Parents/Guardian, Student, Teacher Conferences
Parents/guardian, student, teacher conferences are held two times a year. When a conference is scheduled, attendance by both the parent/guardian and the child is mandatory. If the child doesn’t attend, it will be counted as an absence. If a parent/guardian fails to attend scheduled conferences, progress reports or grades will not be issued.
While there is a scheduled time for parent/guardian, student, teacher conferences, parents/guardians or teachers may arrange additional meetings at convenient times for all involved. Teachers will not be interrupted by phone calls or unarranged conferences during class time (8:00a.m. to 3:00 p.m.). Messages may be left with the school secretary.
Parents/guardians are always welcome to visit, but these visits are to be arranged in advance at a time mutually agreed upon by the principal, teacher and parent/guardian.
Fundraiser Expectations
Fundraisers are a necessary part of maintaining and supporting school expansion and other projects. Parent support is appreciated.
Parent/Guardian Volunteers
There are many ways that parents/guardians can actively participate in the school. Volunteering as a room parent, cafeteria or playground supervisor, hall monitors, tutors or chaperoning a class field trip are but samples of opportunities. Parents are also encouraged to involve themselves in the students activities and learning whenever possible.
Parent/Teacher Support Group
Salam School has a parent/teacher support group that works closely with school administration. Elections are held every year, although members may serve a two-year term. All parents are encouraged to become members of the PTSG.
