Dear Parents,

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 and existing families this year.

Throughout the school year, DAAPA organizes 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 daaparentconnect@gmail.com.

We hope to meet you soon!

Kind regards,

DAAPA Team
