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.

Students, teachers and parents from Duffield Elementary School recently had the opportunity to learn about the culture of a variety of nations from around the world during the school’s annual “Heritage Museum Day” event.
Sponsored by the English as a New Language department, colorfully dressed students and parents visited the classrooms to share facts about their heritage, and answered questions from their classmates. Throughout the school’s hallways, dancers, singers, musicians and make-up artists shared their talents and expressed their pride in culture of their national origin.
Connetquot Central School District Director of ENL/World Languages Denise Hannaoui was on hand to enjoy the presentations, and congratulated the students and teachers for their outstanding efforts. Mrs. Hannaoui was joined by members of the Connetquot High School Foreign Language Honor Society, along with adviser Cheryl Sosa, as they showcased displays that they created about countries around the globe.
Helen B. Duffield Elementary School Principal Mrs. Lisa Farrell was on hand as well to witness the day’s events, and thoroughly enjoyed the student-dancers who shared their Pakistani costumes and dancing routines, the East Asian hand decorations and face-painting tables, along with the Taiko Drummers of Japan who entertained all attendees.
