Weekend School 2016 Report

The Dar Al-Hijrah Weekend School is built on the foundation of the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah. It strives to provide an Islamic environment to guide students to reach their full potential and has done so since 1995. Because the majority of the students attend public school and are non-Arabic speaking, the teachers have to find and use innovative teaching strategies that are embedded in the Qur’an and Sunnah. Our ultimate goal is have each student be able to read and write any Arabic text.

  • School year runs September to May yearly.  This year we have 350 students.

Activities that took place throughout the year include:

  • Qur’an Competition: The school tries to find ways to encourage students and parents to take a more active interest in the Holy Qur’an. The school holds competitions among the classes, and students are evaluated based on pronunciation, fluency and accuracy.
  • Islamic Study Project: Individual classes work on projects corresponding to what the students are learning in the Islamic Studies class.
  • Parent/Teacher Conferences: This is done once a year to update the parents on their child/children’s progress.
  • Guest Speakers: Speakers from our local community come to the classes to speak on various topics.

In May, the school had a Fun Festival for the students to end classes for the 2015-2016 school year.
