Also a special class has been added to this school year “Introduction to Islam for newcomers to Islam”. This is being taught by Br. Abu Nuh and Br. Yasir Sultan, objective for this class to bring newcomers close to Islam and welcome them to our community.
We have made this school year fun for our kids who play soccer, basketball & football and are served snacks, pizza & BBQ during break time. We have 20 plus dedicated volunteer teachers and supportive staff, without their help there will be no Sunday school.
A special thank you to all!
