New!  2022-2023 PTO Board Positions

Participating on the PTO Board is a rewarding and meaningful way to support all Duffy students and their learning experience. We have many great opportunities on the Board available for the 2022/23 school year, and would love to have you join us! 


To be flexible and accommodate today’s busy schedules, Board meeting dates are scheduled far in advance, at a variety of times and days. There are also call-in options for those that cannot attend in person.  Many of the positions have Co-Chairs, allowing responsibilities to be split.


For a full list of open Board positions, along with general descriptions, click here.  If you are interested in learning more about a role, please reach out to Shannon Pecorelli and/or Tiffany Dammarell for more specifics.  

New!  March Conference Week 

The PTO is planning to treat our amazing Duffy teachers by organizing snacks and meals for them to enjoy during Conference Week (3/7-3/11). We have two ways you can contribute:

  • Donate via Venmo to help fund a catered lunch. Just a small amount helps a bunch!  Donations can be sent by 3/7 via Venmo to @Shannon-Pecorelli.
  • Sign up to drop off a specific food item to Duffy.  View the sign up and drop off instructions here. 

This is just a little way that we can all contribute to say WE APPRECIATE YOU to our fabulous Duffy teachers and staff.  Thank you in advance for your generosity!
