Dear PS Parents,

This year has been full of learning, fun, and friendships.  The many accomplishments and happiness of our students is due to the students themselves who are learning to become more responsible for their learning, our amazing teachers and supportive parents.  On behalf of the PS staff, thank you so much for your support and trust.  To our families who are leaving DAA, we wish you only the best in your new school.  To the returning families, we look forward to seeing you on the new DAA campus.  The familiar faces of staff, classmates and the return of Diego and the Culture of Kindness will quickly transform the new campus into “our school”.  

Whether traveling or remaining in Dubai, we encourage you to find opportunities to maintain your child’s learning. Activities such as writing in a journal, sending postcards, reading to self or others, or practicing their math skills, which can be done while reading a menu or shopping in a store.  The ever popular questions, “Are we there yet?” or “What time are we going to leave?” can be a great way to teach or reinforce the skill of telling time.  Interviewing older family members and recording their responses is a great way to practice writing skills.  For younger students, they could draw a picture of them and label it with their names.  Not only is this academic, but the end product is a lovely keepsake.

On a personal note, I would like to thank you for your support you have extended to me as the PS Principal.  I leave with many wonderful memories.  Without a doubt, I will truly miss the students and their generous hugs!  They are very special!  DAA is an amazing school, and will continue to be so regardless of its location.  I leave knowing you are in good hands.  Ms. Nathalie and Ms. Tooshna will continue to ensure that your children are happy, safe and learning.  On behalf of myself and the PS Staff,  we wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer, wherever you may be.
