School is almost out for the summer, but we’re thinking about next year!  We have 2 great opportunities for volunteers that want to help us get ready for our 2022-23 school year.

New!  First Day of School Packets
Help organize welcome packets for all incoming Kindergarten families. These packets are important resources for new families, and will need to be assembled prior to the start of school. If interested, please reach out to Shannon Pecorelli or Tiffany Dammarell. (Link to emails)

New!  Teacher Luncheon
Help plan lunch for our amazing Duffy teachers during their first days back, before the kids are in school. Sarah Dolan organized the event this year, and would love to share her notes with you!
If interested in helping for either, please reach out to Tiffany Dammarell and/or Shannon Pecorelli for more information.



All Hail Kelley Pellegatto and her crack squad committee--Jessica Tutwiler, Grace Napolitano, Judy Luce, Lloyd Frenc, Marcia Lawlor, Kelly Clark, Erin Ryan, Laura Paice, Amanda Ostapoff, Marisa Halm, Marija Trcka, and Anne Scheinfeldt--who brought us another DUFFY FAIR after a three year hiatus! Months of planning paid off on Friday when Dragon Nation finally got to dance, bounce, eat, craft, and play together again. We are forever grateful to you all for stepping up to make it all happen!


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