Dear parents and families,
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته:
On behalf of the entire staff at Maryam Islamic Center School (MICS), it’s my pleasure and honor to welcome our new families and our returning families and students!
My name is Hala Zayan. This is my second year as the principal of MICS. Before joining MICS, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 15 years. Some of the roles I have held include classroom teacher, staff developer, school improvement committee administrator, and certified Nooraniya trainer for adults & children. My academic background includes Quran memorization, Montessori Childhood Education, a Certificate of Montessori Educational Leadership, master in education and a Bachelor degree of pharmacy. As the mother of 3 children ages 18, 16 and 9, I have learned that excellent education is not possible without the strong home-school connection. I would like to assure you that we will all work hard to continue the learning journey established by MICS by building strong relationships with parents, students and community members.
We will focus on the character education, Quran reading skills, prophet’s stories, real-life situations so that we educate the whole child. All teachers have spent hours preparing materials, planning yearlong lesson plans, attending workshops, and preparing the classrooms to welcome our beloved children to the new 2018-2019 year!
Office staff have registered new students, ordered materials, ordered new furniture and put together the binders that have all the necessary information you may need regarding your child’s education to be sent home and reviewed by parents.
Parent’s involvement could make a significant difference in the children’s education. Please always make sure to follow your child’s progress, assignments, assessments and school activities through the school website www.micsonline.org, www.mics.quickschools.com as well as remind texting. Please do not hesitate to call me or send an email if you have any questions, concerns or ideas.
May Allah سبحانه وتعالى guide us all to the straight path and provide us all with the beneficial knowledge that will lead us to success in this life and the life after inshAllah! I look forward to working with you as a team to help each child at MICS meet their goals and have a successful school year!
