Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,

I hope that insha'Allah you had a relaxing winter break and got a chance to spend quality time with your children. I wanted to personally welcome everyone back. We can't wait to see you and our students on Monday, January 2nd, 2017!  

With the new year starting, we wanted to keep you informed about a couple of important things:

2017-2018 Re-enrollment Dates


Alhamdulilah we are happy to officially announce that Re-enrollment for 2017-2018 will start Monday, January 2.  All parents will get email notifications from TADs.  Current Tarbiyah Academy families will have 2 weeks of exclusive re-regisration for next year so you can secure your student's position in his/her class.  

Please remember that a student's place is secure for next year once the 2017-2018 Tuition Agreement has been signed.  Once parents complete enrollment, we will send each family the Tuition Agreement which then must be signed to secure a place in next year's classes. Tuition payments for 2017-2018 starts the month after the current academic year's tuition has been paid.

The following are also important dates you should be aware of:
  • Re-enrollment: Jan 2 - Jan 15
  • Sibling New Admissions: Jan 16 - Feb 5
  • New Student Admissions: Starts Feb 6

New Student Admissions


New Student admissions will start on Monday, February 6.  Please help us spread the word about Tarbiyah Academy by encouraging your friends and family to apply to Tarbiyah Academy. We will be having monthly Discovery Days in which potential parents can tour the school.  Help us by forwarding the below flier for Discovery Day to all your friends and family!
 

2017-2018 Financial Aid


Financial Aid via TADS will be available starting Monday, January 9. I wanted to remind everyone that our Financial Aid Priority Deadline is February 15 with award letter responses being sent out by March 15.  

We are hoping that the bulk of our financial aid will be awarded by that date.  Any remaining amounts will be distributed by our Regular Financial Aid deadline of April 1.  If you plan on applying for financial aid, please do so ASAP.  All applications and forms need to be in TADS by Feb 15 to be considered for award by March 15. Financial Aid appeals (if any) will not be processed until after May 2017. 

Term 2 ECAs

Term 2 ECAs will start on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 and will end on Friday, March 3, 2017. Term 2 ECAs will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  No ECAs will be held on Mondays. The ECA flier will be sent home on Monday, January 2. You can also preview our Term 2 ECA selections
 

Inclement Weather Information

In case of inclement weather the school may close for the day, delay opening, or dismiss early.  Information will be available on WTOP’s website and our school website. Additionally, a special message will be left on the school’s voicemail, and a text message will be sent to all parents/guardians. Typically, TA will follow Howard County Public Schools’ decisions on weather-related closings; however, we reserve the right to make decisions independently as needed.
 

Cold Weather Wear

Please make sure that all children come to school with appropriate outerwear.  As per our school policy, students go out for recess unless the temperatures go below 35 degrees.  It's crucial that students have appropriate outerwear so that they can better enjoy their time outside. 
 

December "Thinker" Passports

December's "Thinker" Passports are due to the homeroom teacher on Thursday, January 5.  Passport prizes will be distributed on Friday, January 6 insha'Allah. 
 

Box Tops Collection Sheets

The Winter Break Box Tops Challenge is due to homeroom teachers by Tuesday, January 3rd!  Prizes will be given to students who submit completed collection sheets on time. Ms. Walcott distributed Collection Sheets before break.  Please help us reach our goal of collecting $500  from Box-tops!
 

Google & Facebook Reviews

Tarbiyah Academy is running a Google & Facebook Review Campaign.  Please take a moment and write a review of TA online using your gmail account or your Facebook account.  These reviews help the school increase its enrollment which will also help us continue to improve our programs. 

Discovery Day for Potential Parents


We continue to host our Discovery Day events for potential parents. We host Discovery Day once a month on Wednesdays.  The next Discovery Day is Wednesday, January 11 @ 11am  Please help us by forwarding the below flier to family and friends.

Mafiq Essay Contest


Don't forget that the Mafiq Essay Contest is due January 15.  Fliers were sent home last term with grades 1 - 6.  The Elementary school topic is: In light of the first three verses of Surat Ma'un, what can you o to exemplify the teachings of Islam?  For more information please visit epc.mafiq.org or email essays@mafiq.org
