Asalaamu Alaikum Parents!
We are very excited to announce that the Aldrich Astronomical Society will be visiting our school on Tuesday, October 17 for our 2nd Astronomy Night, insha Allah. You are all invited to attend.
You may arrive by 6:15 to pray Maghrib Salah first at the school. The presentation will start at 6:30 and last for about an hour. Insha Allah, the presentation will include information about the recent solar eclipse and the end of the Cassini Mission to Saturn. If the skies are clear, we can also do some star gazing.
The 8th Grade Class is also working hard on models that show the phases of the Moon. Insha Allah, we will also have those on display.
We hope to see you there!
Thank you and Salaams, Sr. Kristine
