The PTO could use YOUR help for the 22-23 School Year!

 

We all love our Duffy community and the things it has to offer...from family events like Bingo Night and the Duffy Fair to Teacher Appreciation Week and the Duffy Garden.  All of these amazing things wouldn't be possible without the help of our amazing volunteers!  Please take a look at the opportunities below and consider donating your time.
