The DuFief ES PTA is an integral part of the school. We are a non-profit volunteer organization which serves to support the students, teachers, and staff at DuFief Elementary School.

I would like to encourage you to join our PTA. Joining the PTA does not mean you have to volunteer or serve as a board member.  This allows you the opportunity to participate in the decisions that impacts your child's education.
