Letter To Parents
Dear Parents,

    My name is Mr.Said and your son/daughter is enrolled in my French class this year. I am looking forward to an exciting year. It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in my classroom. I will recognize the individuality of my students and will provide opportunities for each of them to experience success.

    I have extremely high expectations of all my students. I am asking for your help to maintain those expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure that his/her work is being done. I am available to help students during my prep periods.
    I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me at,  if you have any questions or concerns during the year.


French teacher.

New SK1 Homeroom Teacher

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

Dear SK1 Parents/Guardians,

I pray that this finds you and your families in the best of health and iman. T. Iman has submitted her resignation from her current position in order to take a position as an ECE with the OCDSB. Her last day of work will be this Friday. She made many positive contributions to the SK program at Abraar during her tenure and we pray for the best for her in her future endeavors.

Alhamdulillah, we were able to find a replacement for T. Iman. We have hired Sr. Ghada Abou Louz for the SK1 homeroom teacher position. T. Ghada is a familiar face at Abraar, having taught before as a JK teacher and having worked as a teacher's assistant for several years in the JK and SK program at Abraar School. She has also worked as a supply teacher at Abraar at several grade levels including the SK progam. She has a bachelors in science from Dalhousie University, Halifax.

T. Ghada has already started attending the SK1 classroom while in the presence of T. Iman in order to get the students acquainted with her and to familiarize herself with the SKI1's daily routine. This will ease the transition for our students.

Please join me in welcoming T. Ghada as the SK1 Homeroom teacher.

Jazakumullahu khaira,

Arabic- Tr. Salam

Asalamu Alaikum                                                                                              S.K

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I would like to welcome everyone back to the new school year and express some of the excitement that we will be having in Arabic class. The curriculum this year enables the student to learn the basics of the Arabic language by using different methods. These methods encourage eagerness to participate in class while learning in a fun, social and active context that feels psychologically comfortable and safe. 

For our first semester, we will insha Allah cover the following:

• learning the basic phonetics with the different harakats of the alphabet letters (Alif to Dal);
• recognizing the different shapes of the same alphabet letter;
• knowing few words that begin with the same letter;
• writing the individual alphabet letters correctly;
• promoting positive Islamic values; 
• improving  thinking skills ; and
• Practicing oral skills of communication. 

The reading and exercise books will remain in the classroom only to be sent home once in a while for you to be able to see your child’s abilities as they progress. You can contact me by email at 

Salam Beseiso

Arabic Language Teacher
