PEORIA — Several teachers and students had already donned the distinctive head covering and hurried to class early Wednesday before Ariej Mohamed arrived for school.

Students, teachers and administrators have made Richwoods “a safe place,” she said. The school offers an Arabic class and makes private space for Muslim prayers. Both Muslim and non-Muslim students are members of the Muslim Students Association, whose numbers have grown from a “handful” to about 20 since it started last year, according to Mohamed.
Besides World Hijab Day, the student group organizes programs to educate people about Islam, including the many different cultures that practice the religion.
