Dear PS 101 Families:
April recognizes Arab American Heritage Month. Ramadan begins on April 2 and ends with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr on May 2. Our teaching staff will be using NYCDOE resources and instructional materials to celebrate heritage and culture in accordance with Ramadan and Eid-al-Fitr.
Appreciation of other cultures requires nurturing our sense of respect and acceptance. The more we understand and appreciate each other, the more we strengthen the social fabric of our city and our schools.
Eid al-Fitr translates to the “Festival of Breaking the Fast” and is celebrated starting on the first day of Shawwal following the month of Ramadan.
The resources below may be helpful in continuing to learn about Ramadan at home:
