Yavuz Family Teaches Ms. Peryea's Class About Ramadan

Syracuse Academy of Science 2nd Graders Learn About Islam's Holy Month

Wednesday, March 29th, 2023: The Yavuz family joined Syracuse Academy of Science second graders in Ms. Peryea's class to teach them about Ramadan, the holy month in Islam. Ramadan is observed from March 22nd through April 20th by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. The family shared some of the traditions they have in their house to celebrate Ramadan and the purpose behind them. Their son Mahir read "It's Ramadan, Curious George '' and answered questions from the class. Mrs. Yavuz prepared a beautiful lantern craft for students to complete. They also gave students a Ramadan coloring activity as a parting gift! 

We love to learn about other cultures and traditions, and we appreciate our student's family sharing their time with us!
