AMSR Principal, Br. Jafar Baraka’s, Stakeholder Message

Principal Jafar N. Baraka

As Salaamu Alaikum Al Madina Family,

I can’t believe it’s already February and the end of the school year is near.  We are eagerly waiting for Spring to arrive.   We rejoice knowing that Ramadan nears and we are striving each and every moment to be the best Muslims we can possibly be.   We know that Allah (SWT) is  at the center of our lives and is responsible for all that we’ve achieved so far this year.

As you know, this school year’s theme is centered on the idea of “Building a Better Al Madina” and our work has been focused on building a strong foundation around the following themes:

  • Academic Rigor
  • Spiritual Relevance and Relationships
  • Accountability

This year, we’ve focused on providing the kind of fulfilling, well rounded learning experiences that are allowing our students to achieve greater heights as well as develop the spiritual foundation centered in our Islamic ideals as decreed by Allah (SWT) and his messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). A direct result of our transformative success is our academic growth and achievement on this year’s Fall M.A.P. assessments.

We thank our parents for their trust, and commitment to the mission and vision of Al Madina School of Richmond,  It is their belief in our Islamic, educational values that inspires our success.

The contribution of our parents both small and large is unimaginable and we appreciate your continued support!
