New!  Welcome to Duffy New Family Tour - August 31st @ 2:00 pm

Families new to Duffy are invited to join Mrs. Laverty prior to the Meet & Greet for a tour of the building. Everyone will meet at 2:00 pm in the Cafeteria. Please come to the outside Cafeteria door and a staff member will let you in.


New!  Meet & Greet - August 31st @ 2:30 pm or 3:00 pm

All Duffy students are invited to meet their teacher and see their classroom space! In order to reduce congestion in the hallways and classrooms, students will visit in two groups based on first letter of last name:  2:30 pm - 3:00 pm - A-K |  3:00 pm - 3:30 pm - L-Z


New!  First Day of School - September 1st @ 8:35 am

Morning entry is from 8:25 am - 8:35 am every day. Dismissal is at 2:00 pm on Wednesdays, and 3:20 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please review the Duffy Dateline for Back to School information.


Welcome Back Coffee - September 1st @ 8:45 am

Join us on the first day on the front lawn for some Back to School Fuel! This annual tradition is back and Tiffany Dammarell (Emma, 1st) is making her very own cold brew for the occasion: It's artisan! It's bespoke! Most importantly, it's caffeinated! What could be better than Coffee and Conversation?


Please check the Duffy calendar for a complete list of activities.

New!  Mask Donations

Duffy stocks disposable masks for students who need them, but our little Dragons seem to have a much better school day wearing a cloth mask. Our Mask Drives last year were a HUGE success, and now it's time to restock for fall! If you’d like to donate, please send Venmo donations to @sarahdolanmoeller (note “Duffy masks” in the text area). Any amount helps! 



The Duffy Garden Summer Squad! Faydra Siegrist and Marcia Lawlor, Garden Co-Chairs, led a team of pruners, pickers and weeders in the Duffy Garden all summer long! Zucchini, corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, pumpkins, gourds, grapes, lettuces, strawberries...Our kids planted 'em, and they harvested 'em! How lucky is Duffy to have these dedicated green thumbs? Were you one of them? A tip of the sun hat to you all!

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