Alhamdulillah, the results of our parent-elected Board of Education nominations are in. We had several parents nominated for the Board, and of them, one parent has graciously accepted the nomination. Please welcome our newest Board member, Br. Chris Ellis, to the BHA Team. We wish a heartfelt congratulations to Br. Chris. May Allah swt reward and bless him and his family for volunteering his time to the school, Ameen!

We would also like to thank Br. Tamer Abouelkhir for his efforts and time devoted towards the school as his parent-elected term has been completed.
Jazakum Allahu khayr.
