Ramadan Fundraising - 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmata Allah Wa Barakatu,
Dear Parents,
We pray this message reaches you in the best of states during this blessed month of Ramadan.  Alhamdulillah, we are truly blessed to have reached another month in which our good deeds are multiplied manifold.  We should take any and every opportunity that we can to reap the rewards in this month.  Indeed our wealth does not diminish with giving, rather multiplies when spent in the way of Allah (swt).
Alhamdulillah, Austin Peace Academy had a successful year filled with many achievements.  The cost of running this highly successful school is not met by the tuition fees collected.  In order to maintain the quality of education and the quality of teachers, we need your help and your financial support.  There is an urgent need to raise scholarship funds to help the refugees and needy students within our own community.  It is from generous donors such as yourself that we can continue to provide this much needed service to those who need our help the most.
Please join Austin Peace Academy for a special Iftar at the APA/ICGA campus on Saturday July 19th, catered by Dimassi's and help us raise funds for APA.
Program timeline:
Location: Saturday July 19th 8:35 PM, Masjid Khadijah 5110 Manor Rd, Austin TX
Maghrib prayers followed by Iftar dinner: 8:35 PM
Isha prayers and fundraising: 10:00 PM

If you can't make it, donating is as simple as a click of a button. It can be done via PayPal through the www.apacademy.org website or can be mailed in to 5110 Manor Rd., Austin, TX 78723. Please do not disregard this email. Think about the benefit you can bring the students. Think about the reward you will have with Allah (swt).

The Prophet (saws) said: “The best charity is that given in Ramadan.” [At-Tirmithi]. May the blessings of Allah(swt) be with you.

We look forward to you joining us in this blessed and helping us improve the future of young Muslims at Austin Peace Academy.

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Dear APA Parents,

I wanted to make you aware of the schedule for the week of June 2nd through June 4th.

In the elementary school, the day will run as a usual but will end at 1:00 pm. In the Middle and High School, we will conduct final exams.  Each day the students will have two exams of two hours in length each. There is a forty-five minute break time between the exams for the students.

The morning exams will occur from 8:15 am until 10:15 am each day. The afternoon exams will occur between 11:00 am until 1:00 pm each day. Teachers have been given the discretion to offer either a large unit exam or a comprehensive final over the semester. All final exams at APA carry a 15% semester weight.

The rotation for final exams (June 2ND -June 4TH) will be the same for each grade level:


June 2ND

June 3RD

June 4TH

Monday AM

Tuesday AM

Wednesday AM

Islamic Studies

Social Studies


Monday PM

Tuesday PM

Wednesday PM





The buses will depart at 1:10 pm. Please be advised the buses will arrive at their drop-off spots 1 hour 45 minutes early on those days.  All non-bus riders need to be picked up at 1:10p.m.

Please be aware that students are required to take these exams.  If students come late to school on those days they will have the remaining time for that test to finish their exam. The only exception to that policy will be emergency medical notes from a doctor. Teachers will not be allowed to reschedule any exam for a student without approval from the Principal.  Please realize that rescheduling an exam requires the teacher to write an additional version of the exam, which is time consuming.

Jazakum Allah Khier,
Principal Diana Abdi ,M.Ed
