- Mea Culpa
We’re constantly striving to improve the flow of communication at Durham. We recently discovered that the Contact Us tab wasn’t functioning properly & we have dealt with that issue. If you have tried to contact us through that tab & didn’t receive an answer, we’re sorry. This should not be a problem in future.

- Order School Supply Kits for Next Year
What an awesome year it’s been at Durham! Only three more days before Summer Break! Read carefully what’s ahead to wrap up this year right.
Nothing could top students’ excitement this week… except maybe parents’ when they find out they can skip back-to-school supply shopping. Many of you asked us to do it again, so here we go. We’ve polled teachers to find out exactly what students need, asked students what they like, then hand-selected top-quality supplies. We’ll package them up and have them ready for you at Meet and Greet in July. Some teachers may request a few additional items, but this kit is all students need to start the school year ready to learn.
Sixth Grade Kit – $75
Seventh Grade Kit – $70
Eighth Grade Kit – $65
Save your summer! Order today with no sales tax. Profits go to your PTSA for your kids, not a big-box retail store. Supplies on sale only until the end of June. Click the button below and SAVE SUMMER FOR FUN!
