Culture Day

Why participate in culture day? 


We are part of a diverse, multi-cultural community and through Culture Day are able to celebrate this with our students and their families. Students have researched cultures around the world and will be presenting what they have learned about geography, climate, languages, resources, food, clothing and more. 

During the Culture Day Activities students will travel the world and explore multiple cultures including Egypt, Somalia, Mexico, and more. Each class is to develop a presentation including art, jewelry, clothing, language, maps, and history. And most delicious of all foods from around the world. 

Jazakallah khair to all the teachers, staff and families who made such an effort to help develop this program as we not only celebrate the local ummah but also gain greater understanding of the diverse world we live in.

Cell Phone Collection

Action for Apes


As salaam alaikum Parent/Guardian,

We are very excited to be partnering with the Houston Zoo through the end of April 2019 in a recycling challenge called Action for Apes. We will be working hard to collect as many handheld electronic devices (like cellphones and tablets) as possible to be recycled through the Zoo. To win the challenge, we must recycle the most approved items* by April 30. We need your help!


Please assist in this challenge by working with family members to collect old cell phones which students can bring to school to be added to collection box. If we win, we will be the recipients of a one-of-a-kind painting to hang in our hallway, done by the Houston Zoo gorilla troop!


Why recycle your unused or old cell phones through Action for Apes? To help save animals like gorillas in the wild!


Cell phones and other handheld electronic devices contain a material called tantalum that is derived from the mineral Col-Tan (columbite-tantalite). Coltan is often destructively mined in Central Africa, which is home to many endangered species like chimpanzees, okapis, and gorillas. Recycling your old cell phones and other handheld electronic devices allows for tantalum to be reused, decreasing the need for mining – an action which ultimately helps to safe wildlife!


Please join us in our participation in the Action for Apes Challenge and help us reach our goal and become the 2019 winners!!
