New!  Paul Cryan Photos

The famous Paul Cryan will be visiting Duffy January 18-21! This is your opportunity to schedule your child(ren) to have their picture taken by him. Click here for details on how to sign up.


New!  Help Wanted in Nutrition Services

The nutrition services department is very short handed and need staff desperately, so if you or anyone you know may be interested, please apply here. Send an email to Lisa Farrah in Nutrition Services for more information or click here for details.


Coats and Winter Items

The Duffy Closet stocks new and gently used clothing for students that need a little support. The closet currently needs a restock of winter coats, snow pants, boots and accessories (hats, gloves) for school age students - especially in 4th and 5th grade sizes. If you have items in good shape to donate, please send them in with your child and their teacher will arrange for a front office pick up.



The Holiday Helpers reached 13 families, and a total of 30 children in our community by fulfilling wish lists and making holiday dreams come true! This important, special, and long-standing PTO initiative is only possible because of our new Chair, Shannon Pecorelli, and her army of volunteers. A Holly Jolly Cheers to you all!

And, The Holiday Cart rolls again! A beloved tradition continues thanks to our festive Committee. Tomorrow we will make the rounds, serving drinks and snacks to Duffy teachers and staff. Thank you to Alison Bethke, Amy Janangelo, Charlotte Mann, Erin Ryan, Jenn O'Connell, Kaitlin Voglesong, Michelle Ahmed, Molly Towne, & Shannon Carroll for their help planning, stocking, and pushing the Holiday Cart!


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