Our School administration at ACC (Arab American Cultural & Community Center) was closely monitoring the local public health reports and the local school districts plans in deciding how to proceed with our own weekend school Operations. In light of most major school districts decision to operate on an online mode for at least part of the fall, we decided to follow suit and start the first couple of weeks of school in an online mode, with the readiness to switch to face to face pending the state of the pandemic and local authorities' directives.

Arabic classes at ACC will resume virtually on Saturday September 12th.

The virtual meet the teacher and placement test will take place on Saturday September 5th.

Houston Arab Community Mutual Aid 
During these challenging and uncertain times with the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Houston Arab Community has not been spared from the economic impact. That is why 13 organizations have joined a coalition of Arab organizations in the Houston community to carry forward mutual aid relief efforts to serve and support the Arab community of Houston.
Our first step as the Houston Arab Community Mutual Aid Coalition or HACMA Coalition is outreach to our community so that we better understand the needs of the community in this trying time. In order to achieve this, we have done the following and ask for your participation:
(1) We put together a form in both Arabic and English to find out who in our community needs help.
(2) We put together a form for volunteering and donations.
Both forms can be found by clicking here.
We are hoping we can work together to build a strong, united Arab community in Houston to uplift one another. If you have any questions or need to reach our coalition at any time, please contact: houamac2020@gmail.com.



Hall of Ancient Egypt
Permanent Collection
Safely ensconced in the Sahara desert, and drawing its lifeblood from the river Nile, ancient Egyptian civilization flourished for more than three millennia. A quintessential example of what archaeologists call a primary civilization,” ancient Egypt did not rely on inspiration from others to develop its own architecture, writing and religion—all of Egyptian culture was developed “in house.”

The themes of writing, religion, natural resources and of course mummification will be explored in this new permanent exhibition hall.

When: Members Preview: May 24-30, 2013; Public Opening: May 31, 2013
Location: Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555 Hermann Park Drive, Houston 77030

Ever since the late 18th century, the Western world has been exploring Egypt. This hall will present artifacts collected during these early days of investigations, and will also compare old-style archaeology with 21st-century approaches, such as using satellite imagery and remote sensing to locate and map ancient settlements. The Museum’s own mummy, Ankh Hap, will be moved to his new surroundings in time for the opening on May 24, 2013.
