Internet as part of their studies. The Parents section provides parents access to what students are doing in my class on a daily basis. The
site is frequently updated to highlight the celebrations and events of the
month. I hope you
enjoy yourself and learn something. Feel free to email me with comments and

July Holidays and Events
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This year Ramadan began on June 18th and ends on July 17. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. Ramadan is a time of contemplation worship for Muslims. It's also a time to think about the less fortunate, study the Quran do good deeds, and develop self-control.
