Dear Elementary Families,
We were purposeful in our return to school last week in that we focused on community building in the classrooms. After the past 18 months, connecting with one another and creating learning spaces where students feel valued and known were key imperatives.
As we begin to shift into the school year and more routine learning experiences, I wanted to provide you with a short overview of a number of subject areas and some visuals on how it already began in Week 1.
Inquiries into Socials and Science
It has been an excellent return to school and we cannot be more thankful to you for your contributions in support of us in that. We look forward to having you in virtually for Opening Night on Wednesday, September 15. We have an excellent year ahead!
KG1 New Student Orientation Day
Every September we look forward to welcoming the newest group of Little Leopards to the DAA campus. We were so thrilled to once again, greet each new smiling face and welcome them to the first day of their learning journey! Flip through the album to see what they are "in" for!
Our first week was full of learning, well-being, and celebrations of what makes us unique. With over 100 nationalities at DAA, we are always thrilled to share about our different cultures through dress.
Should your child(ren) need to be away from school due to illness or appointments, please contact our School Secretaries.
