The torn old floors need a real update for better functionality and safety. This huge project and inshallah with the support of our parents and community members we can make it inshallah. We started fundraising during Ramadan and we collected $10,000 of pledges so far.

Our teachers were always the first to sign up as members because they believe in all what PTA is about and we are proud of their support.

It's only $10 and we will have a table set at open house welcoming you to our family with membership forms and more information about us. Please look for us and enjoy with your family an icecream treat.
