Assalamu alaikum dear parents and faculty, Due to delays we are experiencing in regards to building our infrastructure for live streaming, and the delayed delivery of additional chromebooks for student use, we are moving our start date to Aug. 31. This will adjust our school calendar as well. An updated calendar will be added to the school website soon. We will still hold Zoom sessions for Open House on this Monday and Tuesday. Once our devices are delivered we will schedule a pick-up time for books and chromebooks for our remote learners. Over the next two weeks, we will hold our parent training to introduce you to the various platforms students will be using. I will also continue to hold our weekly Meeting with the Principal on Wednesdays at 6pm Link: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/

You can find additional information regarding our plan on the school website if you missed the previous emails. May Allah swt keep you all safe and healthy and bless us with a successful year. Wasalam, Mrs. Murrar
Welcome to Universal School
Universal School provides classes from preschool through 12th grade. During the last school year, there were nearly 700 students in our preschool, elementary, middle and high schools.
Our beloved principal, Mrs. Abdallah is retiring after 22 years of devoted service to Universal School. Mrs. Abdallah worked diligently to make our school one of the top Islamic schools. She has been an amazing leader and mentor to every faculty member and student that has come through our doors. She made it her mission to help our children grow into young men and women who exemplify what it means to be a Muslim-American.
Mrs. Abdallah may be retiring from the position of Principal, but she promises to still be involved in the mission and vision of Universal School in a different capacity and we will hold her to that promise. May Allah swt be please with her and give her all that is good in this life and the next. Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Abdallah on her retirement.
Mrs. Murrar is starting her 20th year with Universal School this fall in the role of Principal. She has worked alongside Mrs. Abdallah for the past 7 years as an assistant principal and 3 years prior to that as and Elementary Coordinator. Please make duaa for her continued success as our team leader, our Principal and as our sister. May Allah swt guide her and give her the wisdom and patience to serve our school and our community.
Mrs. Sahloul will also be stepping down from her duties as assistant principal, but will continue as a teacher and Math Department Chair. We thank her for her years of dedication and service to our faculty and students and are happy that she will continue to be a great support to our school in her current role.
Dr. Amanda Razeq and Dr. Linda Hamadeh will be our new Assistant Principals. Dr. Razeq and Dr. Hamadey have many years of experience working alongside Mrs. Abdallah, Mrs. Murrar, and Mrs. Sahloul as Department Heads and Curriculum Coordinators. We have strong structures, policies, and procedures in place that they have helped create over the years.
Please make duaa for our new administrative team and for our Universal School community to always have the blessing and barakeh of an Administration and Faculty that ask first that what they do will be good for our Ummah and our families.
Greetings from your Virtual School Counselor!
How are YOU doing? Most of us seem to be doing okay for a good part of the day and at other moments we might be feeling frustrated or worried. It is perfectly NORMAL to need support at this unusual time.
I would love to hear from you and support you via e-mail at email@example.com or text at remind.com/join/msbanan123. We can also schedule a time to talk over Google Voice or Zoom for additional support.
Mrs. Banan Said
