Welcome to our DAA Parent Community 

#DAAPA #Togetherwecan

In honor of

Welcome Parents to 2021-2022

Welcome to our DAA Parent Community


Welcome back DAA parents! We hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer and that you and your children are ready for the new academic year. 

For those of you who are new to DAA and don’t know us, The Dubai American Academy Parent Association (DAAPA) supports the development of the unity among parents, faculty, administration, students and staff by cooperating to enrich the lives of the students and guide parents towards a better understanding of the aims, policies and philosophy of Dubai American Academy. The achievement of this mission relies upon parent cooperation and volunteerism, by parents like you!

The parents listed to the left and below have been elected as the DAAPA Executive Committee for 2021-2022 and with your help, we will be planning this year’s events. 


DAAPA uses the SPOTS newsletter to communicate information regarding our planned activities, events, coffee mornings, clubs etc with you. Although there is still uncertainty about what we’ll be able to do on campus this year, we will certainly do our very best to make this a fantastic year for our school community. 

Please reach out to us with any questions you might have, or if you’d just like to learn more about what we do, at:

Celebrating Seniors


It has been a long standing DAAPA tradition to celebrate our Seniors throughout the year by hosting various events. True to this tradition, we were able to welcome them back on the first day of school with balloons and cookies!

Zoom Meetings


We have planned Zoom coffee mornings for each of the school divisions where DAAPA will be joined by representatives from our Senior leadership teams from each division.

Local Business Listing

DAA Parent Community Business Listing

 We have received an overwhelming response from the DAA parent community for our DAAPA initiative to compile a list of local businesses that are run by DAA parents ahead of the Holidays. The list is now ready and includes over 50 local businesses ranging from Food & Catering, Fashion & Accessories to Home Services and Health & Wellbeing products. Have a browse HERE and check them out! 

As a gentle reminder, DAAPA is providing this list as a courtesy for informational purposes only, it does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of any products or services and it will be the parents’ responsibility to verify the providers independently.

We are all looking forward to seeing you very soon.
