The Duffy PTO welcomes ALL families to work together as we build an engaged community and support a learning environment which enhances our children’s elementary school experience!

Here are some ways we support our mission:

  • THE PTO FUNDS authors in residence, maker space materials, school wide assemblies, updated technology, student newspaper, Scholastic News, Duffy Fair and MORE!
  • THE PTO CARES by sponsoring need- based drives, funding student scholarships for field trips, and working with our school leaders to build an environment supporting equity, diversity and inclusion.
  • THE PTO SUPPORTS our school by organizing volunteers (room parents, committees, teacher support, family events, book fair support).
  • THE PTO HOSTS staff back to school lunch and appreciation events, welcome wagon and school wide welcome back event, school wide coffee and conversation, and a volunteer appreciation breakfast.
  • THE PTO DONATES to community programs which impact our families and students (Conard Safe Grad, The Bridge, FWHPS, Cultural Council, DUFFY CARES)
  • THE PTO COLLECTS rewards from AMAZON SMILE (designate Louise Duffy Elementary as your charity), Stop & Shop A+ Rewards, and BOX TOPS for education-please consider participating.
