PRINCIPAL END OF YEAR MESSAGE 2017
SubhanAllah. Another year filled with memories and milestones witnessed by APA. Undeniably, our wonderful sense of community played a tremendous part in our recent recognition by Niche® as the 2nd Best K-12 Private School in Austin–a success we all share. As well as, APA’s High school winning the 1st place sweepstakes in Science Fair and Elementary school placing 3rd place in PSIA states. Students and parents should be very proud of their school. Alhamdulillah.
Our Hifz program, now with 30 plus students, continues to flourish with our youth taking seriously the title of “Protectors of the Qur’an”. We have one student that completed 11 juz in one year and thus lead to completion of the memorization of the Quran.
The introduction of AP Capstone diploma next year to the high school is significant milestone in itself.
Our teachers are committed to new training in the summer, taking Pre-AP and Advanced Placement classes at the University of Texas in addition to training by CollegeBoard. Our staff has and will continue to be trained in order to deliver excellent instruction based on these standards.
All of our students’ achievements could not be possible without the support they receive from a committed faculty. Thank you to the teachers, educational assistants, and support staff who work tirelessly to make learning at our school possible. Thank you also to all our parents and guardians who support our students in so many ways.
A special thanks to the volunteers, the Parents’ Organization, and the School Board. We are blessed with a caring and supportive community. We really appreciate such a positive partnership.
With the end of the year also comes staff changes and family moves. We would like to take this opportunity to wish those students and families leaving us this year all the best in their new schools and homes. We want to extend our sincere thanks and best wishes to staff members who will be leaving us for different assignments and other leaves.
Every day is a blessing at APA, Alhamdulillah.
And as the wonderful month approaches, Ramadan Mubarak! May Allah swt grant us the blessings of this Ramadan, fill our days with accepted fasts, our nights with accepted prayers, and the moments in between with remembrance of Him.
Have a blessed summer and keep APA in your prayers.
