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 in Stephanie Russo and Elissa Prisco’s fifth-grade class at Duffield Elementary School recently engaged in a holiday-oriented STEM activity. After reading one of their weekly vocabulary stories, the students constructed their very own gingerbread houses based on their reading.
Throughout the activity, they worked collaboratively to generate ideas before working independently to construct plans for the structures. Using their problem-solving skills, the students then tested and revised their plans as needed to improve the structure’s stability.
