Please review the attached document to register or update your account in Konstella, the communication platform teachers, room parents, and the PTO utilize for important communication to our Duffy Community. Now that class assignments are out, new and returning families can initiate or update their accounts by placing their children in assigned classrooms. By doing this, you ensure that you will not miss any announcements  or events.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to the Duffy PTO at duffypto@gmail.com with any questions.
