Since teamwork makes the dream work, Saturday Academy believes in adding as many team players as possible to our roster. As we work to enhance the importance of celebrating diversity in our schools, Muslim Educational Trust (MET) joined us as this fall’s MVP’s. Founded in 1993, the Muslim Educational Trust is a beacon of light for Muslims and non-Muslims in need of education in greater Portland. The bulk of their impact has been showcased in the Islamic School of MET and Oregon Islamic Academy, where they teach students the power of self-love, leadership and faith.
During a previous 2- week partnership in July, MET didn’t hesitate to share their hunger for making a positive impact on children. Welcoming Saturday Academy with open arms, MET provided new introductions for Saturday Academy in Tigard, easily accessible location, amazing classrooms and a community of students and peers enthusiastic about embracing inclusion. In the fall, MET is opening their doors to collaborate with Saturday Academy once more during winter break. We will be hosting 6 classes December 18th-22nd, 2017. Instructors will be teaching 3 classes in the morning and 3 in the afternoon, keeping the children’s minds stimulated and adding flexibility to your schedule.
