🏂Shredding it on the slopes🏂 every Wednesday is back thanks to Emily and Matt Rooney who stepped up to chair Ski Club after the program's year hiatus due to the pandemic. As one of the only elementary schools to still run a bus to Ski Sundown, Duffy's Ski Club has preserved its Ski Wednesday tradition only due to the commitment of Ski Club Volunteers and Co-Chairs. Send it, Dragons!

One Year, One Time! If you want to submit a shout-out to someone making Duffy better, please email Sarah Dolan, PTO President.
