Fall Book Fair

Book Fairs give children an opportunity to engage in their learning in a wonderful way.  A book is a portal to new worlds!  This year we had books from Barefoot Books and Rumi Bookstore with a great selection of books from the East and the West!!

Our book fair provide a wide selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level.

Truly, a book is a dream that we hold in our hands!  We hope the children enjoy their new books and we would like to thank all of our parents for supporting the school with this endeavor.

Back to School Night

Back to School Night is a special time of the year at Peace Terrace.  Parents are welcomed into the school to learn about what each teacher plans for the year.  Their are discussions and general building of a strong, loving community.

Thank you to all of the parents that attended this year.

Our ECE classes.  Don´t you just love the special little reading corner in Nursery?

MashaAllah the teachers put in a great deal of effort in creating comfortable and cozy places for our students.  Students spend a great deal of time at school and school should feel like a home away from home!

During the Town Hall meetings parents and staff discussed the impact of screens on children and the importance of discussing such matters as a community.

This was a wonderful gathering.  We are looking forward to the remainder of the year, inshaAllah!
