May 5: Ramadan & Suncatchers
Ramadan (also called Ramzan) is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. During this month, Muslims across the world fast from sunrise to sunset. The Islamic calendar is different from the Gregorian calendar since it follows the phases of the moon. Thus, Ramadan may be 29 or 30 days and the dates change every year, moving ahead by approximately 11 days.

05/01/2018: Happy May Day

Happy May Day!
May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on 1 May. It is an ancient Northern Hemisphere spring festival and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities.
May 1 is marked as International Labour Day, also referred to as May Day. The day celebrates laborers and the working class. Labour Day is an annual public holiday in many countries. … May 1 was chosen to be International Workers’ Day to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago.
This Sunday in RE we will learn about Ramadan:
Ramadan (/ˌræməˈdɑːn/Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān, IPA: [ramaˈdˤaːn];[note 1] also known as Ramazanromanized as RamzanRamadhan, or Ramathan) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar[3] and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.[4][5] This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.[6] The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.[7][8]
Hope to see you on Sunday!
Take care,
Jenell RE Associate
