Assalamoalaikum warehmatullahi wabarakatuhu
Dear Alqalam Families,
Welcome back to the 2019-20 school year as we continue a well-diversified positive educational experience here at Al-Qalam!I hope you had a restful summer as we start another exceptional school year!
Al Qalam Academy implements our own unique curriculum with an integrated approach to learning. The curriculum is guided by the grade level Virginia Standards of Learning through which core subject areas, Arabic, Quran, Islamic Studies, Physical Education,Steam and Art, are experienced through a broader lens.
Our program is supported by guidelines, resources and professional development for teachers to make good decisions around student learning.
Online programs enhance student learning through technology. This year we have introduced the online program VAVA along with the regular classes for both Middle and High School.
Communication is critical when building a strong home-school connection. I am always available to you with my “Open Door Policy”. I also encourage you to have an open dialogue and two way communication with the classroom teachers. Stay updated with Teachersease that are being used by the teachers. For school related information we’ll continue to utilize phone and email-blast, monthly newsletter, weekly plan and monthly activity calendar along with an updated website. You can also follow us on Facebook too!
We look forward to the 2019-2020 school year with excitement, confidence, hope, and very high expectations for students and staff alike. Al-Qalam Academy staff appreciates your continuous support and look forward to a successful year ahead!
Jazakum Allah Khair.
