The Duffy PTO welcomes you to the 2019-2020 school year. We look forward to partnering with and supporting you to ensure a "joyful, compassionate learning environment where mindset and academic growth matter". If you haven't already, please update your Konstella account by placing your child(ren) into their new classrooms.  We hope to start the year with complete or near complete classrooms to allow you easy access to communication. We are looking forward to a great year!

To add your child(ren) to their classroom in the Konstella app, go to Settings (gear in top left corner) -> Your Children -> Select child's name -> Select classroom from the bottom field.

New!  Weekly eBlast

The PTO Communications Team writes and sends out a weekly eBlast every Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. The announcement contains information that pertains to the entire school including upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and important information. From week to week, some information is repeated, so any items introduced that week are denoted with New! to allow parents to quickly identify what has been added that week.
