With the celebration of Eid al-Fitr and the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan, I am reflecting on the courage of our students and the community they create with compassion for each other. Our students demonstrate this throughout the year, but even more so during Ramadan – which was strongly reflected in the kind and wonderful generosity of one of our student’s parents – Kamel and Loubna Beyk.
At the start of Ramadan Kamel and Loubna approached me and asked if they could prepare and host a meal for our students and staff – not just those fasting through Ramadan, but all students and any staff who were available. So, on Sunday, March 26, Kamel and Loubna arrived at 12:00 pm to prepare the day's Iftar meal. They worked tirelessly all day preparing a beautiful meal for the whole Merrick Preparatory School community.
