Conference Week Thank You!
great big THANK YOU to all who donated snacks, drinks, homemade sweets and breakfast items for Conference Week. The staff enjoyed everything and are so thankful for the kindness and generosity of Duffy families.

We are building next year's PTO Board
We are looking for a parent/guardian who is excited about Duffy and has good communication skills to be next year's Vice President. This role could also be shared between two people. This role is essential to the operations of PTO and is a wonderful opportunity to get familiar with PTO activities and school staff. If you are interested in getting involved, please email current VP Dawn Gagliardi or Kim Molinaro.
NEW! -  The Double Good Popcorn Fundraiser is now LIVE!

The March Madness popcorn fundraiser is now LIVE and runs until March 16th at 8pm. Students are encouraged to sell as much popcorn as they can through their grade’s Pop-Up Store (links below). The grade that sells the most popcorn will win EXTRA RECESS!
