BHA Principal's Update
Assalamu Alaikum Dear BHA families,

Alhumdulillah reopening was a success and the first week of school was great and all students, in person and virtual seem to adjust very well to the new schedule and learning model. May Allah reward you for all of your help, enthusiasm, patience, and well wishes which contributed to our great first week of in-person learning. It was heart warming to see students and staff so happy to be reunited and back to learning. May Allah continue to bless our school and your families with health and happiness.


Jazakumu Allahu Khairan,

Muhammad Aftab Diwan, MEd

A Note From The Teacher
A message to Suhaib:

“Assalamu Alaikum 
I wanted to share this picture and a nice smile with you. In the afternoon Hifth program Suhaib came in his uniform. I was pleased to see that. He started to recite in a very nice way and after he was done I asked if I could take a picture for him so he gave me this nice smile. I do not know if it was for succeeding in reciting his surah or it was because he is wearing the uniform. When I asked about what made him wear it he said: "it brings me good memories. 

I wish that I can see all my students in uniforms again.

Jazakumu Allahu khairan”

-Ms. Hanan


A message to the 3rd grade Class:
" I wanted to say a big thank you to my class. They have been working so very hard! We have been working on patience and positive attitudes. One student that I have noticed who has shown lots of patience is Sahar. Since it’s difficult to pick every single student to participate, I choose a certain amount and then try to give everyone a chance by the end of the day. Sahar is definitely not the only patient student, but she has been the one that has stood out the most! She even sends me chats that it’s all right that I didn’t pick her yet. And she encourages me to keep my positive attitude in very difficult moments on zoom. She loves her classmates and IT SHOWS! Again, every single one of my students have shown such great growth, but I would like to acknowledge Sahar’s constant patience and positive vibes."

Students Highlight:

The hobbits have been busy creating art pieces from the foliage in their yard. Can you spot the 2 hedgehogs, the kookaburra, Hedwig the owl, the pinecone turkey, and the Maple tree? Don’t miss the beautiful frames! Guess what the candles are made from - Hint: It’s not pumpkins!
This month Bright Horizon Academy will be learning about EMPATHY, inshaAllah.

Each month we focus on a character trait by exploring what it means, why it’s important and how we can incorporate these traits every day.

We have attached our Character Education newsletter with some ways that you can help your child continue to learn about empathy.
