Dear Families, Friends and Supporters of CPSA,
AssalamAlaikum and Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you, as part of our educational family, to another school year at CPSA. Our school has a reputation for dedication and excellence, and with our highly qualified and progressive teaching staff, we are committed to providing our students with an Islamically relevant and rigorous instruction, using technology and resources.
Our staff and administrative team have been very busy this summer. We have participated in staff development workshops and trainings which enabled us to further our expertise in various curriculum areas and refine classroom management skills. We also have spent valuable time previewing instructional materials for use in our educational programs. Academic emphasis on the core content areas of reading, language arts, science, social studies, math, Islamic Studies and Arabic will remain a priority as well as instruction in the arts, technology, and physical education, providing each student with the opportunity to develop skills in these areas.
Our focus is to consistently provide each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience. We will continue our efforts to differentiate instruction at each grade level to meet the needs of each of our students and challenge them to realize their full potential. We will make every effort to address the academic, social and emotional needs of our students.
The greatest resource a successful school has is its people. Parents and community support is essential to who we are and what we hope to accomplish. Working collaboratively with staff, parents, and community to create a school vision and effectively convert that vision into student success, is our dedicated goal. Thank you again for your continued support and cooperation.
Farhat Siddiqui, Principal
