Assalamu Alaikum:

Only a few children took the test (Surah Al-Alaq) last week. I graded the tests for those students and asked them to have parents sign the test and bring it back next Sunday. 

If your child did not take the test past Sunday, he/she only have one more chance on Nov. 5. 

All students are also supposed to deliver their presentations on Surah Al-Alaq this Sunday (11/5). Those wanting to use their own devices will need to bring an Apple handheld (iPhone, iPad) or Mac (computer). These are the only devices that can be hooked up to the TV using AppleTV. Alternatively they can bring their presentation on a USB or email it to me the night before and then play it on my laptop.

Let me know if there are any questions.
