And a final message...
Although we weren’t on campus, DAAPA continued working throughout the year to enrich our school’s community with focus on parent well-being, connecting with our school’s senior leadership teams across all divisions and acknowledging our wonderful teacher’s and staff’s dedication, commitment and support throughout the year. If nothing else, this past year and a half has truly shown us that
Wishing you all a Happy, Restful and Safe summer.
