Welcome from your DAA Middle School Senior Leadership Team
Dear DAA Middle School Families,
This weekend will be the Prophet’s birthday (PBUH). On this past Tuesday morning, Islamic students from elementary, middle, and high school paid homage by reciting the Quran and singing songs about the Prophet’s teachings (PBUH). It was a wonderful reminder of how kindness and compassion can positively impact the lives of others, and is universal to all people. A huge “thank you” to the Islamic students and staff members who made this possible!
We are at the end of our Fall MAP testing and could not be more proud of our students’ effort. Overall, the preliminary data are very strong for subjects across all grade levels! Individual reports will be sent to families after the testing season (end of October or beginning of November).
DAAPA & MS Coffee Morning
We had about 40 parents able to come and hear about some of the great things happening at DAA, and learn about some events happening in the near future. We had some special guests who came and shared their highlights of the beginning of the school year. Kudos to our amazing students!
Lighthouse & DAA Present: Secrets of Parenting an Adolescent
Students have now been allocated their trips, the information is located on their student bulletin. The next step is to get the deposit in via GEMS Net or the Gems Connect App to secure their spot! You should have received a unique payment link to pay for your child’s trip yesterday (Oct. 6). Please see the timeline below, or the Week Without Walls website for more information. We are all very excited about the opportunities that lay at our student’s feet and can’t wait for February 27 to come!
If you have any questions we can help you with in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out! You can contact us by email at Middleschool_daa@gemsedu.com or by phone at 04 704 9722. Our staff directory can also be found here and in every edition of SPOTS.
