Remote Learning

Assalamu Alaikum,

Alhamdullilah we have successfully finished the end of the ten-day distant learning,and began our new lessons and continuing with the core curriculum via remote learning.  Our students will embark on a journey of new learning, new activities, and new interactive lessons. We are certain our students will not only grow academically throughout this journey, but they will grow in strength and in emotion.

These times will prove that Al-Hikmah students, parents, and teachers stand strong as a community. We will not allow these times to inhibit us from learning, growing, and being by each others side.  Our teachers are working diligently and with the sincerest intentions to make sure each and everyone of our students are a part of this new learning process. I am confident our students will succeed.

InshaAllah we will all look back at these trying time and know that Allah(SWT)blessed us with his mercy and strength and we will all be back together again in our second home Al-Hikmah school.

May Allah(SWT) bless you all and keep you healthy and safe.

IEF Schools COVID-19 Updates

 

Dear Respected Students and Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum,

Inshallah this reaches you all in the best of health and Iman. I pray that all our Al-Hikmah students and families are healthy and safe during these trying times.  As we are approaching the end of the ten-day distant learning, I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the upcoming weeks during the school shutdown due to COVID-19.   

Let me begin by saying how much we dearly miss all our students. We are deeply concerned for our students’ health and well-being, as well as their families. Although none of us have experienced a pandemic before, the Al-Hikmah family of students, parents, educators, leaders, and all other members have quickly risen to the occasion, as usual! We would like to thank everyone for your kindness, support, patience and cooperation throughout these times.

As you know, at Al-Hikmah we strive for excellence in academics and faith for our students, and in this occasion, Excellence stands for- bringing everyone’s strengths and faith together. That is exactly what we are doing and continue to do remotely in order to serve our most important assets- your children.

The next few weeks will not be easy. There will be mistakes, problems, and concerns along the way. However, there will be more successes, happiness, hope, laughter, fun, and purpose. We understand many of you are still working and have several children to help, financial concerns, health issues, etc.  We are here to patiently support our students and you throughout this challenging time.  Please do not stress over the schoolwork via distance learning or printed packets. Frustrations are high due to circumstances out of our control and we don’t want to increase the stress on our families. We are going to do our best to provide schoolwork to keep our students’ minds moving forward. But you are the parents and they are with you, so you have control to adjust as needed for your child/children.  Again, contact your teacher via email or text message via apps being used, if you need help.

We also ask for your continued support, patience and understanding as we travel this new territory, too. Our teachers and other employees are working long hours from home while dealing with the needs of all their students and making sure to keeping consistent communication.

Jazzak Allah Khair,

Sr. Hayat Jaludi

Principal
