I applaud your resoluteness and you have a right to say your piece though I might not agree with all of it.
But I think I need to point out that Islam does not worship Mohamed.
They worship Allah.

Paradoxically, the whole idea of not having images of Mohamed or any other prophet was to avoid their inadvertent worship as before the advent of Islam, idol worship had been widespread in Arabia..

Hey but other than that. Go for it. Don't bend to the school bully... I think that was the gist..
