TAD Homework and Security Volunteers

Assalam O Alaikum Dear Parents,

I have only heard from a couple of parents that they were not able to access the homework file. I am assuming everyone else did. Please reach out to us if you are having any difficulty in accessing the file. I am copying the homework table from last Tahir Academy just in case. Homework is 40% of the term grade, please work with your kids to ensure they spend the time on it.
Also, Talal Virk sahib and Mahmood Chaudhary sahib will be contacting fathers for security duty for Tahir Academy. Please work with them to volunteer for at least one Sunday every year.

As always, please reach out if you have any questions/concerns or suggestions.

The Goal is to memorize the Surah’s completely (keeping the rules of recitation learned in mind) by end of the Term. Every class, we will do some testing and will be included the in Final Grades in te exam. Please NOTE, this memorization will be in addition to the other home work items. Parents should work with kids at home to make sure kids are memorizting, and if they have already memorized, then let’ work on Rules of Recitation learned in memorized verses/ Surah.
