Welcome to Duniway! Whether you are a new or returning family, we know you will have a fantastic educational experience at our school.
The Duniway Foundation is comprised solely of parent volunteers, who work throughout the year to raise much needed dollars that allow our school to fund classroom teaching and assistant positions not funded by Portland Public Schools. With the funds raised in the 2017-2018 school year Principal Goldstein was able to hire the equivalent of three full-time teaching and teaching assistant positions and plans to pilot a STEM scientist-in-residence program in the Spring. For the 2018-2019 school year, you will be asked by the Duniway Foundation to participate in two key fundraising events:
- The Fall Giving Campaign: www.duniwayelementary.com/give
