Girgi’an dress (قرقيعان)


Good Morning KG and PreK families,




This year we are very fortunate to be able to experience the joys of Girgi’an  during our final week of school.  We would like to take the opportunity for our children to celebrate this beautiful Gulf tradition by allowing them to dress in traditional Girgi’an dress on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.  Students will dress in traditional attire and go door-to-door singing to receive a small book from neighboring classes.


If you would like to send in a small token for your child’s classmates, you are welcome to do so, but certainly not required.  We request that you send in nonfood items as students will not be eating treats at school.  This could be an eraser or pencil, preferably something educational.


For students who are celebrating birthdays during Ramadan, students are welcome to bring in a small treat to share with the class.  This should be prewrapped and ready to send home with the students.  Please understand that students will not be eating the treats in school. 


If you have any questions, please call the school at 1843247. 






Jean-Marie Kahn


Assistant Principal KG
