**Please Note: Teachers will be using WhatsApp this year to contact the parents with what they find necessary for the parents to know. If you don't have a WhatsApp, please download it (if you can't, please see your child's teacher(s)). Because this will be a replacement for the newsletter that used to be sent out. Also, this is not a means for the parents to be sending their own personal or religious messages to the teachers or the rest of the group (it is strictly for Madressa; if you want to speak about your child with their teacher, send the teacher an individual message)!**


If anyone has any questions or comments regarding the Madressa website, anything related to or what goes on at Sunday School, or if you have any suggestions for the Sunday School, please don't hesitate to let us know at Madressa. 


Jazak'Allah Khair
