New!  Duffy Auction Recap
This was our first virtual auction, and it was a HUGE success!  We raised over $18,000 for Duffy, and the gaga pit was installed this week - so exciting for our kids! If you won a teacher experience all of the names have been given to specific teachers and they will reach out to the winners when they have a date scheduled for their experience.  Thank you so much for your amazing support!
Gently Used Children’s Book Drive - December 6th - 10th

Duffy Dragons will be participating in our annual “Get a Book, Give a Book” celebration in December. In order to build our selection of books to choose from, please consider donating gently used children’s books during our book drive. A collection bin for donations will be located in the main lobby.  During the week of December 20th, all Duffy Dragons will have the opportunity to pick out a gently used book for winter break reading as well as choose one to wrap and bring home to give as a gift for a sibling, neighbor, friend, relative, etc. Share the JOY of reading! 


This week we recognize two of the PTO's most low-key but high-value contributors: 
Meghan Martinez took on the role of Board of Education representative for the Duffy PTO and she presents us with succinct and useful updates which keeps the Duffy community in the know on all things WHPS. We want to say thank you for heeding the call and keeping us in the loop! 

Megan Sipe is an elementary school Triple Threat: she's our friendly Duffy office go-to-gal, a Duffy mom, and also the PTO's Recording Secretary! We are so grateful for her commitment to our Duffy School!  

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