New! Join in the Harvest Hunt Fun
This October, we are introducing a new school wide event - The Harvest Hunt!   All Duffy students will go on a search for fall items placed in locations around our campus. In order to make this event successful we need the help of our wonderful Duffy parents.  Please volunteer between 1-1.5 hours during the same time that your child’s class will be participating in the hunt. Click here for details and to volunteer.
Volunteer Opportunities for the 2021-2022 School Year

We are excited to share that volunteer opportunities for the 21-22 school year have been added to a sign-up sheet in Konstella!

Check here for a list of openings, a description of each, and to see others interested in the same opportunities. Please note – if you submitted a volunteer form to us already, we have automatically added you into the sign up! Questions about volunteering?  Email Tiffany Dammarell and/or Shannon Pecorelli.



Faydra Siegrist, Marisa Halm & Marcia Lawlor are absolute rock stars. They got two weeks' notice that Roots2Rise (our fabulous West Hartford Farmers Market partner) was able to offer food shares and they got right to work. With cheerfulness and optimism, they delivered Duffy its fall Farmers Market. Lots of folks would have said the timeline was too tight, but they said: We Got This! and produced food, fun and memories for Duffy families. Thank you to all the Farmers Market volunteers! What a blast.


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