DAAPA's success depends on parent involvement.
Welcome DAAPA Members!
Welcome to the GEMS Dubai American Academy community. Simply by sending your child to Dubai American Academy you have become a member of the Dubai American Academy Parents Association (DAAPA). We look forward to your involvement in our many wonderful DAAPA projects planned for your child throughout the year.
The Dubai American Academy Parent Association 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 philopsophy of Dubai American Academy. The achievement of this mission relies upon parent cooperation and volunteerism.
DAAPA ... For Students by Parents
With your help, DAAPA is able to provide a wide variety of activities such as guest speakers, welcoming of new students, the International Food Festival, school dances, movie nights, homeroom parents for Primary and Elementary classes and so much more. All funds generated from DAAPA sponsored activities are used to fund DAAPA programs and enrichment programs for students.
How can you get involved?
DAAPA's success depends on parent involvement. Being a DAAPA volunteer is the first step toward making new friends and learning about new cultures. Along with the DAAPA EC, parent volunteers support and head numerous committees for our events. These opportunities offer parents a chance to participate in an area of interest or expertise. Volunteers are asked to become involved in decorating, organizing festivals, promotions and marketing, and hosting special events such as the Winter Carnival, just to name a few. Through volunteering you will see how the success of our students enriches not only our lives but the overall school atmosphere--and you will play a role in our 'Culture of Kindness'.
DAAPA parents arrange our yearly Winter Carnival for Primary and Elementary students.
In honor and celebration of DAA's 20th Anniversary, DAAPA hosted a special GALA evening at the St. Regis.
DAAPA's biggest event of the year is the International Food Festival, bringing together all of our 100 cultures together at DAA. What a celebration of our diversity!
