“ICEV-FNO New Timing: Fridays 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM”

Dear Parents of ALL FNO Girls and KK boys:

Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!
On Wednesday, January 30th, we have a VERY SPECIAL EVENT scheduled for ALL Girls and KK boys ONLY. For details of the event, and to learn WHY we scheduled for a weeknight, and why we still STRONGLY HOPE that you will bring your daughters, even if just for an hour, please read on!
       WHAT: Skate Party at Skateland USA, Chandler (corner of Alma School and Ray)
       ADDRESS: 1101 W Ray Rd, Chandler, AZ 85224 
       WHEN: Wed, January 30th
       TIME: 6:00 – 8:30 PM
       COST: $9/person (This includes SKATES/ROLLER BLADES, skating, 1 slice PIZZA, and one DRINK      
       WHO: All FNO Girls/Mothers. You’re welcome to invite your non-FNO friends (once again, FEMALES ONLY) as well!
      ** Non-Muslim Female friends are welcome, but please ask them to dress appropriately. NO SHORTS!
  WHY we scheduled for a weeknight?    
      This is a PRIVATE EVENT, JUST FOR US–no other skaters will be there–and Skateland private parties are available only on weekdays
       NO MUSIC –We’re going to have our own playlist of vocals-only NASHEEDS instead, inShaAllah!
       Skateland has promised ALL FEMALE STAFF
       HALAL PIZZA (Skateland’s CHEESE pizza is halal; we checked out the cheese, sauce and bread)
  WHY we hope your daughters (and any female friends they’d like to bring) will attend this event?   
      This is not just a fun event, but also an EDUCATIONAL one.
      Educational, how? An event like this teaches our girls how to take the resources available to us and modify them to make things HALAL. It allows our kids to see possibilities where they didn’t before, and to start identifying other possibilities on their own. When we told the girls of Group B about this event and that we would have nasheeds instead of music, and that the staff would be all female, they were surprised and excited. They kept asking us how that was possible. We want our girls to see an example of what can be done, bi’idhnillah.
     An event like this teaches our girls that they CAN HAVE FUN while keeping things halal.
     We don’t know when an event like this will be repeated, so we hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity.
  PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a drop-off event. So please plan for a responsible adult to be there to supervise (only women–no dads please).

We sincerely hope you’ll bring your daughters to this very special event that we’ve arranged just for them, and we look forward to seeing you and your beautiful daughters on Wednesday, January 30th. :)
