#DAAPA #Togetherwecan

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Dubai American Academy!

On behalf of all of us at the Dubai American Academy Parent Association, fondly known as DAAPA, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all new families joining our wonderful school community this year.

Throughout the school year, we organize many fun events for our community including coffee mornings, book club events, community yoga, and of course, our famous Wild Wadi Waterpark Night! We are always excited to have new families join our events or volunteer a few hours to assist with planning an occasion or decorating the school.

To connect with us, send us an email at

We hope to meet you soon! 

Kind regards,



DAAPA is proud to be the the organizers and management team behind each grade's Whatsapp group for parents. This is a vital tool in our communication framework and DAA is so appreciative of all of the hard work that DAAPA put in. These Whatsapp groups are for parents only and are used to share information, get quick answers to questions and share the Leopards spirit with other likeminded parents. 

Eg. Whatsapp group DAA GRADE 6 2022-2023 has over 150 members

If you are not yet a member and wish to join, please get in touch with DAAPA and they will send you a personal invitation to the assigned grade level Whatsapp group
