Please join us in providing our teachers snacks and a couple of meals to help energize them during the busy conference week. Click here sign up.



Wondering where Duffy can use your help?  Most volunteer opportunities do not require an ongoing commitment, just sign up when you are available.  Try out helping at the recess running club, salad bar, garden recess club or maybe contribute snacks for conference week.  Volunteers make a big difference in our Duffy community!
