Dear respected parents,
It is Eid Al-Adha! Eid Mubarak on behalf of the Islamic Academy of Delaware Operations Committee, teachers, and staff would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your children a very blessed Eid Al-Adha.
The Islamic Academy of Delaware will be closed for Eid on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Classes will resume on Thursday.
We realize we are breaking for Wednesday as part of the Eid in light of the unanticipated change in the timing of the 1st day of Eid. We hope to make up for the lost time during the school year.
May Allah accept your good deeds.

The first day of school at Islamic Academy of Delaware was marked with optimism and readiness to start an exciting journey of learning. Students came into a building and classrooms that were ready for learning. Teachers set their expectations and listened to students’ stories about their summer time, their goals, and what they wish to learn. These conversations were meant to create a welcoming, friendly, and comforting environment where students feel the school is their second home.
In Arabic language and Quran classes, teachers spent the time measuring children’s levels in order to place every child appropriately with his/her peers as we break students into groups.
Kids started the day with breakfast served at 8:00 am, then all line up for the morning assembly as they all recited the morning Athkar. During lunch and recess teachers emphasized good eating and cleanliness habits and monitored their children closely as the played outside.
We all prayed Thuhr together in the masjid and concluded a most peaceful day.
As we move on for tomorrow and beyond, I wish to stress a couple of points to make sure our school community performs to its full potential:
1.As you drop off your children in the morning please park your vehicle in the parking lot and walk with your children to the school door. This will prevent car congestion before the school building and will ensure safety for children who may be walking in front of the school building.
2.Bring your children to school on time. It is very important that your children attend the morning assembly as they will learn the morning Athzar and develop leadership qualities. Many daily school announcements are made in the assembly. Arriving at school on time teaches children responsibility. Arriving late after classes start deprives students of valuable time and causes disruption to other children and to learning in the classroom.
3.Similarly, park your vehicle in the parking lot at dismissal and walk to the school building door. The area before the building will be off limit to cars. At the door, announce your child’s name to the admin assistant and your child will be called on the PA system to come down to meet you. No students will be sent outside the building on their own. Once you pick up your children please proceed to your vehicle. I do advice you not to leave your children unattended on the parking lot, the playground or the school premises.
4.Please pick up your children promptly. Arriving late to pick up your children will hold teachers hostage in the classroom as they attend to your children until you arrive.
5.If your children are bringing breakfast or lunch from home please provide them with healthy meals that sustain them for the day. Some kids arrive with no food or with candy or potato chips with poor nutrition value. Let’s work together for safety and wellness of our children.
Again, I wish you and your children the best of time and hope that you forward your suggestions and concerns to me.
Barak Allah Feekum.
Jazakum Allah Khairan,
