Duffy Cafeteria

There are still opportunities to volunteer at the Duffy cafeteria!  This is a fun way to interact with the students and even have lunch with your child!

Please sign up using the Konstella sign up link.


 Did you know that the DUFFY PTO budget nets to close to zero for annual revenue and expenses??  Our end of year balance has been carried down from years when our annual revenue doubled what we currently bring in. We utilize this surplus for front end/start of year expenses and appreciate a cushion should a fundraising effort fall short of projected revenue. We need your ongoing support to maintain our current programs as well as to allocate funds to critical school needs.


 Duffy "Souperbowl" results

The results of the Duffy “Souperbowl” are in! With a final count of

          Rams- 223     Patriots-475

Duffy predicts that the Patriots will win Super Bowl LIII.


The true winner of this Duffy tradition is the West Hartford Food Bank. Our school proves, once again, that we are true to our Duffy promise of being compassionate citizens.


Very special thanks to the office staff, our student counters, and to the custodial staff for helping transport our 700 donations!
