New!  Volunteers Needed!!

We are able to host so many wonderful events and programs for the Duffy students and their families because of the countless parent volunteers who donate their time and energy to making them happen.  We are off to a great start for the school year, but need your help!  We have several Committee Chair and Co-Chair roles open: Family Nights Committee Co-Chair, Conference Week Committee Chairs, Field Day Committee Chairs, Kindergarten Registration Co-Chair, and Teacher & Staff Appreciation Co-Chair. Please contact Diana Yorkavich or Shannon Pecorelli, Volunteer Coordinators, if you are interested in Chairing a Committee or if you'd like more information. If you are unable to commit to a Chair role, please consider volunteering time as a Committee member.  For a full listing of committee opportunities, click here.
