ELEMENTARY essentials

FROM THE ES PRINCIPAL'S DESK

November 15, 2018

Tonight was Movie Night for Elementary School and what a night it was. It was wonderful to see so many families out under the stars on a Thursday night. It is nights like this, in what would be a cold and wet night in Vancouver, that make living in Dubai a special experience.

Tonight was the work of our very own DAAPA who work hard throughout the year to help connect our students and families to school beyond the classroom walls. Whether it is parent gatherings, Fall Festivals, hallway make-overs or nights like tonight, DAAPA makes our school a better place. As both a school leader and a parent I would to express our gratitude to DAAPA and the parent community who passionately support school life in and out of the classroom.

Have a great long weekend and see you on Monday!
