New!  PTO Donations at Work
The PTO sponsored a visit from Dr. Eric Galm. See below for a message from Mrs. Tierney, and click here to view a photo of his visit.

Thank you for the PTO sponsorship of Dr. Eric Galm from Trinity College. He presented a workshop on the instruments of Brazil. He always plays for our choir and is an incredible ethnomusicologist. Thank you for the opportunity to learn about the music of another culture.

 

New!  Duffy Closet is in search of Shelving

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.

Matilda Jr. The Musical - March 24th - 26th

Conference Week is a marathon for teachers: So much talking and smiling and explaining and in-personing and virtualing...who knows when they ever find the time to eat and drink! But thanks to Shannon Pecorelli, Diana Yorkavich and Alison Bethke our Duffy teachers had everything from granola bars to gum--not to mention a hot breakfast to a catered lunch!--at their quick grasp in the teacher's lounge!
 
Huge thanks also goes out to every Duffy family who donated food, drink, and/or money for the catered lunch. This week-long event wouldn't have been possible without you!
 
 

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