Snow pants are still needed!
The Duffy Closet has run out of snow pants. If you have any outgrown snow pants that are no longer needed, please consider donating them to the Duffy Closet. All sizes are needed. 

The Duffy Community is coming together for the Duffy Citizens of Equity Project. This is a challenge to keep flexing and stretching our muscles beyond kindness for a better world for all.  Follow along with our calendar for opportunities to collectively learn and grow in and out of school with activities and discussions and so much more. The fun begins Monday, January 9th and will end on Friday, January 28th. We have a number of resources in addition to our calendar to share together.

Included in the challenge is an ongoing project to collect recipes rooted in the different cultures of all our Duffy families. This project will continue throughout the year and culminate in something we can all share. You can share recipe details, stories about the recipe, and even videos.

We are so very excited to start this year making our community the best it can be!

Because of the generous donations to PTO, we were able to show our appreciation to every single staff member in the school including our amazing specials teachers, paras, office staff, academic support, custodians, and lunch room staff. We received many words and notes of thanks for our demonstration of our appreciation. It was a wonderful day of gratitude to round out 2022.
