Aya of the Week

Successful indeed are the believers (1) Who are humble in their prayers, (2) And who shun vain conversation, (3) And who are payers of the poor-due; (4) And who guard their modesty - (5) Save from their wives or the (slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy, (6) But whoso craveth beyond that, such are transgressors - (7) And who are keepers of their pledge and their covenant, (8) And who pay heed to their prayers. (9) These are the heirs (10)

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.
