SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS

PLEASE BE SURE TO PICK UP YOUR SON/DAUGHTER ON TIME. IT WOULD BE BEST TO ARRIVE 5-10 MINUTES BEFORE THEIR PRACTICE ENDS.  OUR COACHES ARE ALL STUDENT VOLUNTEERS AND HAVE OTHER COMMITMENTS AND NEED TO BE ABLE TO LEAVE ON TIME. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN SO THEY DO NOT START ROAMING AROUND THE BUILDING OR EVEN OUTSIDE UNATTENDED.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Islamic Center In The News

Every community has a narra tive.  Either that community controls the narrative or the narrative cont rols the community.   Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of the narrative. This can only be achieved if as a community we are building bridges and inroads with media.  Media outlets want to cover stories and do pieces that people are interested in. They want viewers, readers, comments, and discussions.  It is critical that as a community we are more visible and more vocal in the media.
 
We have been blessed for wide and positive coverage of the Center.  When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
