We think having a letter to send to your school, letting them know about Ramadan, is something we should all send out each year. The letter lets them know when Ramadan will be occurring this year and making them aware that there are Muslim children at the school. The intent is to spread more awareness, that in turn, helps to create a more diverse and tolerant school.
If you school district has a diversity program or similar groups, they encourage this, but sometimes just don’t know where to start. If we’re able to help the schools with some education, and informative printables, then that’s a win.
You can download the letter below and use it to distribute to your school and/or your school district. It is in an editable format, so you can customize it as you see fit. However, it is send-ready. You can also just copy and paste it into an email and send away.
Below, we’ve included videos links and other on-line resources for the schools. We’re also working hard on getting you Elementary, Junior/Middle & High School appropriate printables to include in your letter – those should be out in the next couple weeks so check back!
We’re working on a comprehensive package that you can submit to your school, teacher and school district so they have everything they need at their disposable. The easier it is to help out teachers with material about Ramadan & Eid, the better educated everyone is.
Please keep in mind the letter and the printables will be educational in a broad sweeping way for Ramadan & Eid. So that everyone can get a general idea of Muslim holidays.
We hope this letter helps and encourages you to reach out to your school and hopefully brings about more awareness for Ramadan & Eid and a general understanding of the holidays. Bismillah!
Educational printables about Ramadan & Eid coming soon! In the meantime, check out the Ramadan & Eid themed kid’s crafts and our adult craft page for more content.
