Eid Toy Drive March 22nd - April 7th


DATE: March 22-April 7

DESCRIPTION: The toy drive will run from Wednesday, March 22 through Friday, April 7. We will have a box set up for the toy drive in our front lobby. These toys will be distributed around Eid time to local children either from needy and/or refugee families, insha Allah. We hope you will engage your child in purchasing at least one toy for the toy drive. Toys do not need to be expensive or elaborate; please avoid battery-operated toys and all toy weapons.

Also, look out for more information on sadaqa boxes we will have set up in the front lobby as well. Every year, we encourage our students to give in sadaqa each day, as a way to build the habit and comfort around giving in charity. We teach students to give consistently, even if it is a small amount (a few coins or a dollar); to give with their right hand; and to make/purify their intentions when giving in charity. The FTA will have boxes set up for this purpose; these funds will go towards projects right here at our school. We will have another box set up for projects that will support families living in poverty in other countries. Further details on this are forthcoming, insha Allah.


DATES: March 23-April 7

  • Level 2: One Juza’
  • Level 3: Two Juza’

Let’s bring summer to an official end with a Tarbiyah Family Back-to-School BBQ!

Feel free to bring water guns, jump ropes, balls, pogo sticks, scooters etc.

Please bring enough meat/chicken for your family, as well as a dessert or side dish to share.

  • For those that are bringing meat/chicken to grill at the park, please assume that it will be shared. There are only 2 grills and usually a few dads volunteer to do the grilling, so everything tends to get mixed up. If you want to guarantee you get your own meat, you may want to bring it already cooked and labelled.
  • Out of respect for everyone please make sure the meat/chicken/hotdogs are all Zabihah.
