Parent Teacher Friends Organization (PTFO)
The PTFO supports many of the programs that Dummerston families enjoy each year. These programs include graduation scholarships, Winter Activities, the school garden, ELF and the end-of-year Field Day. The PTFO also raised money to purchase new science equipment and sports uniforms last year. Please come and help us continue these time-honored activities.
