New Families Program

We want to make sure that all families feel welcome, not only for those who have joined Duveneck in Kindergarten.

Our New Families Program is focused on ensuring those families whose children have entered Duveneck from 1st to 5th grade get the right support to make their transition into the community a positive one.

The program provides various levels of support such as:

  • New Family Playdates – Playdates are scheduled prior to the beginning of the school year for new parents to connect with one another and to meet various other families who are already part of the Duveneck community.  Please see the calendar for dates for the New Family Playdates.
  • New Families Meeting – This meeting is hosted by our Principal with support from PTA members and the PiE committee. We hope you can join us for this special event that is geared towards getting to know our school, learn how to connect and get involved, and learn about our school’s resources for students and families. Please note that this is a parent-only event, but we will have many more gatherings that will include the entire family. Please see the calendar for this meeting date and time.

We are parents and teachers who support Duveneck Elementary School in Palo Alto, CA. As a community, we help create the school we want our children to have by providing funding for school equipment and materials, hosting community events, and providing enrichment programs for parents, teachers and students.
