Eid Mubarak to all of our families who celebrate!

Eid Mubarak

To those families in our community celebrating the Muslim holiday, Eid, we send you our wishes for a joyful day and year ahead!

Eid al-Fitr, also known as small Eid, marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, and is celebrated during the first three days of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims congregate that morning for Eid prayers. It is a time of official receptions and private visits, when friends greet one another, presents are given, new clothes are worn, and the graves of relatives are visited. The most common way to wish someone a Happy Eid al-Fitr is Eid Mubarak, which means “blessed feast” (or festival). 

This year's Eid al-Fitr artwork was created by Mark Twain Middle School student Tazrian S. as part of the FCPS Observance Design Challenge for Students.

We are collecting new toys for a Ramadan Toy Drive to benefit children in need throughout our community.

Toy Drive Continues...

ALL families are invited to donate to the Ramadan Toy Drive which will benefit both Muslim and non-Muslim families throughout Fairfax County. Toys collected should be new or in good condition and will be donated to the Loudon Islamic Center and to Inova Children's Hospital. You can view the hospital's wish list here.

The deadline for toy collection has been

E X T E N D E D through Friday, April 12th. 

This toy drive was planned by both current and former WSES students as a way to do good works in service to the community during the month of Ramadan.

Please join us for the April PTA meeting scheduled for tomorrow at 7:00 PM.

Our April PTA Meeting will be held tomorrow, Thursday, 4/11 at 7:00 PM.

Tomorrow afternoon, you will receive a text message and an email with more information on how to join us for the meeting.
