Students in Grades 6/7 have looked at some of the great values that were the foundation of America in their Social Studies Class.  Those values are : justice, valor, perseverance, purity, innocence, hardiness, vigilance.  We have found that these values are timeless and are also values shared in our Islamic tradition.  The students were asked to come up with a sentence expressing these values from an Islamic perspective.
