School News & Announcements
Don't forget to sign up for the Duniway Directory
The Duniway Directory will be going to print soon, so make sure to update your information. The Duniway Directory is a printed and online directory distributed only to families currently enrolled within the school and is used solely to connect the Duniway school community. Please note: you must sign up for this separately from your school registration forms.
All families should have received a link in their email to sign up or update their existing information. You can also update by picking up a green directory sheet from the wall of forms outside the office and returning it to the PTA box in the office.

A Message from the Principal
September 19, 2014
I know I start saying this with increasing regularity, but time is starting to fly! As we head into the final week of September, it is exciting to see our students becoming more and more comfortable in their new classrooms. It is very important to us that every child feels excited to come to school every day. We know that our students must be in a space that is conducive to learning, as without this sense of belonging and excitement to learn, our students will not reach their potential.
In order to meet our mission of academic, social, and emotional growth for ALL students, our entire school community (parents, staff, and students) must ensure that we are supporting one another and working collaboratively to make every child a priority.
Last Friday, our Field Day was a perfect example of an event where many of us came together to celebrate our community, while being active and having fun. Thanks to Mr. Donahoe for his organization and thanks to the many volunteers who made this event such a great success. We had beautiful weather, lots of smiles, sweat, and even a surprise visit (not because we called them) from our friends at Engine Company 20.
With over 500 students enrolled, communicating information in a timely manner is very important. Lynn has been working tirelessly to update registration forms and to finalize our email distribution list for the coming year. This week’s update will be the first ‘email edition’ to be sent home to all families.
Please contact Lynn in the office if you have additional email addresses to add to our list. Our school web site, www.pps.net/schools/duniway, is also a good place for information about upcoming events and other useful links.
I want to thank all of you who were able to attend Back to School Night on Wednesday. It was great to see so many of you (crammed into our auditorium) and I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to meet all our amazing teachers and then learn more about what will be happening over the next eight months in your child's classroom.
If you were unable to attend, please contact your child's teacher to sign-up for a fall conference and to make sure you get copies of any materials that were distributed.
Again, thank you for all you have done to get the 2014-2015 school year off to a great start. Enjoy the final weekend of summer!
