science fair

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Dear Parents,

Assalam Alaikum,

Your child has been invited to take part in the Abraar School Science Fair scheduled for Wednesday, February 20th, 2013. This exciting event encourages students to think like young scientists. In the next few weeks, your child will design a science project using the scientific method to solve a problem. In this activity, students will have the opportunity to develop skills in creative thinking, problem solving and communication (oral and written).

Your cooperation is appreciated in encouraging your child and monitoring his/her progress along the way. Your support is the key to a successful project, but please do not allow your involvement to extend any further in order to assure equity and promote student learning. Guide your child whenever and wherever you can. It is important that the final project reflects student individual effort and design. Keep in mind also that a successful project can be completed for under $15.00

Students will be given instructions and guidelines (handouts) during class time as well as help during the various stages of their projects. Although most of the work will be completed at home, students will be able to use the science lab whenever possible. For suggestions on helping your child through this process, see the website at

Although participating in the event is already a reward in itself, we like to offer recognition (in the form of a prize) to the top 3 students for their excellence. We would appreciate your generosity in this regard by helping us cover the cost of the prizes. If you are able to help with a financial donation, you may give it or send it to Sr. Naida or to myself.

May Allah reward all of you for your generous contributions and support!

For any question, please email me at the address below

Jazakum Allah Kheiran for your cooperation,

Tr. Amina
