In the Community Hall of Lions Center located in the city of Rancho Cucamonga, the Islamic Center of Inland Empire arranged the awards ceremony for the graduating kids and the teachers and volunteers of the school, on June 16th, 2007.
The day started with an awards ceremony for all the graduating kids. Sister Deana did a wonderful job of conducting the whole ceremony in high spirits. She was a natural choice being the most popular among all the young kids, who always followed her lead to respond “Allah-u-Akbar” to her calls for “Takbir”.

A group of students

A select group of students from each graduating class presented a heart-warming recital of the verses from the Holy Qur’an. All the kids recited very well, but Sister Sehar’s team of students was definitely the most impressive group on stage. May Allah reward her.
After the kids, it was time for the teachers and the volunteers to get their due recognition for a marvelous job done all year long, with limited resources at hand. Afterwards, all families with their kids headed back to the Islamic Center of Inland Empire, conveniently located just across the street. Delicious food for all and fun games for every age group provided a very good family atmosphere. Islamic Center of Inland Empire’s administration deserves a hearty thank you note from the whole community of Inland Empire for doing such a good job for the local Muslim families.
