Duniway Spring Showcase and Concerts are TOMORROW NIGHT – May 23rd!
Wednesday, May 3rd is our Spring Showcase from 6-8 pm. The Spring Showcase (formally known as the Duniway Art Show) is a celebration of the hard work that has taken place this year across many disciplines. Depending on the classroom(s) you visit, you will see artwork, writing, and examples of other projects that students have been working on over the course of the last weeks and months. Remember, this is an open house, so even if you have just a few minutes, we hope you can stop by school between 6-8 PM.
We have 3 wonderful Concerts as part of the evening activities as well! Please come to see our Kindergartener’s perform in the cafeteria at 6:00. Our 4th graders will perform in the auditorium at 6:30 and the Duniway Choir will perform in the cafeteria at 7:15.
Come celebrate the Art at Duniway!

From Principal Matt Goldstein
Today has been a great day to be outside, enjoying a beautiful spring day with hundreds and hundreds of amazing runners - sweating and smiling to support the Duniway PTA. A big thank you to Sara McMahon, Christina Waldron, Lindsay Wyant for their leadership. Additional thanks to the many volunteers and spectators for making today a great success. I also want to thank Mr. Donahoe for all his work in making today such a fun event.
The Fund Run is one event that really brings out the best in our community. It is an event that would not be possible without supportive volunteers. If you are looking for an opportunity to become more involved with the Duniway community, please consider joining the Duniway School Foundation. If you are interested, please see the link in this week’s Update.
While we are on the topic of community events, I want to make sure that you all have our annual Spring Open House/Art Showcase on your calendars. The event is set for Wednesday, May 23rd from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Student work will be displayed in classrooms and throughout the school and we will also have musical performances from our kindergarteners, 4th graders, and the Duniway choir.
Although we still have five weeks left in the 2017-2018 school year, we are already beginning to gear up for next year. As I have discussed, the classroom placement process will be getting underway soon. If you would like to provide feedback to us, please remember you must turn in the following FORM classplacementform.docx as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding the form or the process please feel free to contact the office.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
