New!  PTO Donations

Now, more than ever, the Duffy PTO relies on voluntary annual donations to support everything from Enrichment Programs to the Duffy Directory to fun Duffy Events. Please consider a donation by sending cash or check into school in an envelope marked Duffy PTO, or donate online at Konstella.com and click Fundraising.


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! 

New!  What's in YOUR wheelhouse?
The PTO could use your help!  We have volunteer opportunities for various committees.  It's a great way to get involved in the school community, support Duffy and meet other parents and caretakers.  Click here for a list of committees that have openings.
New!  Library Volunteers 
We have a great opportunity to help Mrs Dailey in the library!  Students will be visiting the library this year, and there is a significant need for volunteers to help shelve books. Shifts will be available each day, for 30 minute increments, beginning in October.  Not familiar with the library shelving process?  No worries, the library staff can teach you!  If interested, please contact Shannon Pecorelli  or Tiffany Dammarell.  


Welcome Packet Stuffers! Those folders you got on the first week chock full of important info and super fun paperwork? Jennifer O'Connell, Michelle Ahmed, Maria Folan, and Amy Janangelo STUFFED ALL OF THEM! On the day of The Great West Hartford Flash Flood, basements were under water, cars were stalled, but these women still SHOWED UP and now Duffy is prepped and ready for the school year because of their efforts.


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