TAD Pictures from the field Trip

Dear Parents, Assalam O Alaikum,

Alhamdulillah we had a really successful field trip on Saturday. We had 52 kids and 24 and 2 staff members in attendance. A lot of hard work went into the planning and execution of this trip and all the parents helped out tremendously with the chaperon responsibilities. Jazakallah to Tahir Academy staff and the parents. We could not have pulled this off without your help.

Here are the pictures of the trip. A very special thanks to Zafar Piracha sahib for being our official trip photographer and doing an outstanding job 🙂

As always please let me know if you have any questions.

TAD Tahir Academy Field Trip – Final Details

Assalam O Alaikum Dear Parents,

Alhamdulillah we have 53 Tahir Academy students, 5 siblings, 8 moms and 12 dads confirmed for the trip. Due to more exhibits, better experience and lower cost we have switched to the Ft. Worth Zoo. Here are the logistics for Saturday.

8:30 am – Meet up at the Masjid for carpooling.(will leave at 9:00 am sharp)
10:00-1:00 pm – Children watching exhibits in the zoo in groups.
1:00-1:45 pm – Lunch at the picnic area in the zoo
2:00 pm – Return to the Bait -ul-Ikram (should be back by 3:00pm)

We will most likely have Pizza for lunch, children are allowed to bring snacks so feel free to bring/send any if you know your kid will be hungry before lunch. (Outside food and beverage are permitted, with the exception of straws, lids, glass containers.) Also please make sure the kids are dressed appropriately, the weather is supposed to go up to 86F, so hats and water may be necessary.
You may be contacted by Tahir Academy staff or me to help with carpooling or chaperoning, please do your best to help out. In any case please keep $5 cash for parking at the Zoo.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We are really looking forward to this field trip and having some well deserved fun.

Jazakallah.

Khalid Kark

P.S. We will be having regular Tahir Academy classes on Sunday.

TAD Fwd: Tahir Academy Staff Appreciation Night

Dear Parents, Assalam O Alaikum,

I am sure you got the following email from Gen. Sec. Sahib regarding the teacher appreciation night this Sunday. I am hoping all of you can join and enjoy the festivities. I wanted to pass on two messages to the kids through you.
1. There will be no speeches, lectures or presentations. 🙂 This is an event to enjoy for kids, parents and staff and thank Allah for our blessings. Kids are allowed to bring board games and other activities to enjoy with friends.
2. The kids will have the mic. and we are hoping every kid has something to say something about Tahir Academy, teachers or staff. Please spend a few mins with hem to help them think through.

Since this is a staff appreciation night, we are planning to serve some good desi dinner. (there will be one kid friendly option.).

Please be there by 5:30, or you will be marked tardy ;-).
Don’t forget to bring dessert.!!

Hoping to see you all this Sunday inshallah.
