AMSR Principal, Br. Jafar Baraka’s Fall 2018 Message

Principal Jafar N. Baraka

As Salaam Alaikum,

Happy November!   I hope all of our families are enjoying this wonderful fall weather in central Virginia and are looking forward to our upcoming, well-deserved Fall Break!    I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank our entire Al Madina parent community for making the start to the 2018-2019 school year a success. Thank you for actively participating in your child’s education. It has been wonderful to see parents these past couple of months visiting of the school for parent teacher conferences and coming out to support our many of our school events.

So much positive work has taken place to transform Al Madina School so far this year.   We’ve begun the 2nd 9 weeks of school working diligently with our students and teachers to support academic success. We started this year by re-designing our Friday schedule to include greater spiritual development, targeted academic intervention supports and school culture-climate refinement.

New executive officers were installed to our school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). They are in place and ready to go to work!   Also, several of our students were elected to serve as class delegates and executive officers to Al Madina School’s Student Government Association (SGA).

Al Madina School is on the move this year!  We are fully accredited, fully staffed and full of excitement about our school’s future.  We are refining our instructional practices and recognizing student voices. We are celebrating student success!

We thank our parents, teachers and community members for all that you do.  Thank you for your vision setting, volunteerism, donations and support.

We are forever partnered with you to “Build a Better Al-Madina.”


Br.  Jafar Baraka- Principal
