Each student will receive a booklet every week.  In order to make copies of this booklet, the teachers need to collect $10 per child for the whole session. Please do not forget to give this to your teacher the first day of class.

No homework for children unless specified by teacher. Parents’ homework is to review with their child the booklet in the folder and to speak Arabic at home as much as possible.
Non-Arabic speaking parents: just take time to review the booklet and ask questions to your child. Be involved and show interest.

Snack is provided by the parents. Snack is a moment of intense communication in Arabic and used as such by our teachers. It is also a moment of cultural exchange, therefore please bring Arabic  food (arouss/sandwich in Pita bread with Labneh, Jam, Honey, holiday pastries etc..) Remember it’s not a meal . Please feel free to switch dates as you see fit.
