Welcome, Parents & Friends!

We welcome parent involvement at Durham Elementary School. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education generally are more successful in school and in life.

Please visit the school office any time and stay in touch with your child’s teacher – see the Staff Directory for phone numbers and to send an email to your child’s teacher or Durham Elementary Staff.

We also welcome community participation, including donations of time, money, materials and expertise.
