The Holy Month of Ramadan

This year, Ramadan will begin on Thursday, April 23rd through Saturday, May 23rd.  Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture, during which Muslims observe fasting from sunrise to sunset.

Many of our students and staff from the Muslim community may fast during this time, going without food or liquid for more than 12 hours a day during the 30 days of Ramadan. Although fasting is not required for children until they reach the age of puberty, some younger students choose to practice fasting. We need to keep in mind how this might impact our students’ learning and participation in school activities and etc.
