Dine With DA

Enjoy dinner with other families in your child’s grade!  

New this year, Dine With DA will offer families the opportunity to get together by grade level for a casual, fun meal. These dinners, scheduled one grade at a time over the course of the school year, will give students and families the opportunity to gather together in a relaxed environment outside of school hours.  

All Dine With DA dinners will be outside either at a local restaurant or on DA’s campus. Food will be ordered and paid for by individual attendees.  

Dine With DA offers the perfect opportunity to see old friends and make new ones, while taking off a night from cooking dinner. Be on the lookout for detailed information on your grade’s event and come Dine With DA!
