'IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE DO'
تحية الوداع الى الحبيبة سحـــــر
تلميذة المقـــــاصد في مدرسة الصويري
انطفأ نور عيونها بأمر من الله تعالى تبارك اسمه
بعد احتفالات الفرح التي شاركت بها الحبيبة سحر
بأجمل ابتساماتها ودقتها بالأداء
اسكنك الله فسيح جناته يا سحر
ستبقي في قلوب رفاقك والأسرة المقاصدية
عظّم الله تعالى أجر أهلك ومحبيك ومقاصدك
رئيس جمعية المقاصد الأستاذ أمين الداعوق

|Our Makassed Association Logo|
Today we had an interesting activity in our class! We had brilliant ideas through brainstorming our "Makassed Logo" because the concept was so intimate to us. Then we used the words that we came up with to discuss what our Makassed Association means to us and the details of the motto especially the Quran verse:
وقل ربي زدني علماً
which means "Lord, increase me in knowledge" and this increase should continue forever...so we have to cherish more and more learning.
After that we we drew the logo and each one of us gave his own caption.
We wish our Makassed another great and fulfilling year ahead!

June 5 is "World Environment Day." This day was instituted by the United Nations to stimulated worldwide awareness of the environment. A day to promote caring for our planet, Earth. World Environment Day is celebrated around the world with street rallies, bicycle parades, green concerts, essay and poster competitions in schools, tree planting, recycling efforts, clean-up campaigns and much more.
We, second graders, have celebrated this day through a collaborative project with our friends at Hatton Vale State School in Queensland, Australia. We decided to write a story together, so we took turns with each class writing a part alternate weeks. It was a new experience and the excitement grew as we eagerly awaited the moment that we could all read our Aussie friends' parts.
Special Thank You to Ms. Amanda!
