Dear Duffield Families:
Are you among the majority of people who would love to receive reminders? If you are and would have loved to receive a text message that read: Don’t forget tomorrow is a half day. The buses will pull out of the circle at 11:35, then this is for you.
In an effort to improve communication between the school and parents, I have designed a one-way text communication through REMIND 101 where I am able to send out a reminder text to an entire group of people. This reminder would be specific to Duffield only. The text message may include emergency information. but it is truly meant to be used for general reminders. The district will continue to use the School Messenger phone messaging system for emergencies. If you would like to start receiving a text message, please follow the directions below.
I know how busy you are. To help strengthen the home-school connection this is an effort to increase communication in the most convenient way for you. Joining is optional! Visit www.remind101.com to learn more.

Classes at Bosti Elementary School are now able to enjoy the recently renovated outdoor classroom within the school’s courtyard for reading, writing and science-based lessons.
Additionally, a variety of flowers, plants and even pumpkins are growing, making it a haven for butterflies and birds. This beautiful space was enhanced this past spring through a CFAC grant written by Lisa Manzo, Patricia Koster, and Laura Nektaredes. The Labyrinth was designed and created by Ronkonkoma resident Richard Koster.
This summer, the space was cared for by parents and students alike, as they watered and weeded the garden.
A heartfelt thank you to the following families and scout troops for their contributions - Ramirez, Monalvo, Arroyo, Castaldo, Quinn, Hippler, Farino, Focarile, DiGaetano, Girl Scout Troop 1855 (Mrs. Ciaccco) and Girl Scout Troop 2314 (Mrs. Olsen).
