Asalaamu’ Alaykum wrwb,
We are only days away from our Crescent Moon Book Fair that will be held at the Clairemont Campus multipurpose room from Monday through Thursday next week (10/23-10/26). Please check out the wonderful assortment of books and games offered, which are all catered to a Muslim audience. It is imperative that our young scholars read narratives that reflect our Muslim identity and belief system, so our children can navigate the intertwining of cultures in a holistic and positive way.
BHA students and parents will be able to get priority selection on Monday and Tuesday before it opens up to the community at large, so please make sure to stop by early insha’Allah. All proceeds from the event will be given in charity (80% to Palestinian Relief Efforts, 20% to BHA). For those who would like to order from the website directly, please use the promo code BRIGHTHORIZON and you will receive free shipping.
Below is the link to a mini catalog that highlights some of the books that will be offered. Please take a look at the books for your own family, or browse some options that could be donated to your child’s classroom library.

Lastly, on Wednesday (Oct. 25th) the PTO will host an Islamic Heritage Night with a focus on the Palestinian Narrative after school from 3:30pm-4:30pm. All community members are invited so feel free to invite friends and family insha’Allah. If you would like to volunteer for this event, please reach out to Mrs. Aalaae Ahmed at email@example.com.
We hope to see you all next week, and please make an effort to support our ummah abroad in any way you can insha’Allah.
