A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

Welcome to the Doyle Family!

Last week, we welcomed two new staff members to our Doyle family. Please join me in welcoming Miss Gorton, building substitute and Mrs. Bogaerts, PCA. We are thrilled to have them as part of our Team Doyle!

CB West Partnership

Thank you to our CB West students who participated in the School Age Child Development class. We enjoyed having the students join our classrooms and learn from our amazing staff. We are so thankful for this partnership with CB West, and can't wait to host more students in the future.

Winter Universal Screening

As mentioned in a communication earlier this year, the district has begun the implementation of MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Support), a process through which we support students based on research-based assessments and practices, as well as individual student need. Along with this process, we are using the Star Assessment by Renaissance for Reading and Math. This assessment was taken in the fall by all students.


Our Winter testing window is scheduled for late January to early February. This second assessment will allow us to assess the health of our curriculum, as well as help us to celebrate student growth and support students with specific skill interventions and enrichments. T hese assessments will be completed electronically in your child’s classroom and only take one class period to complete. The information we have gleaned from the MTSS process has been beneficial in identifying learning needs early and providing intervention quickly, allowing us to support students as they achieve academic success and feel pride in their work. Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or me, if you have any questions.

~Mrs. Fantaskey

Winter Weather Reminders

Outdoor Gear

As the winter weather has arrived, please be sure that the children have coats, hats, etc. for outdoor recess. We try to make sure the children get outside for fresh air and enjoy some physical activity throughout the winter months, based on the temperature and wind chill factors. In addition, please be sure to label your child's clothing and items brought to school. This will help us to eliminate an overcrowded lost and found area!

2-hour Delay - Modified Kindergarten Schedule

As a reminder, when Central Bucks School District operates on a 2-hour delayed schedule, the kindergarten program will operate according to a “modified” schedule.

This schedule would be as follows:


A Schools - DOYLE

  • AM Students 10:35AM – 12:20PM
  • PM Students 1:30PM – 3:15PM

Sparks NewsLetter

In a recent article by psychologist Louis Tay, he states, “Don’t push your children toward skills just because they pay well. Financial success is only one dimension of a fulfilling life.” Teaching our children to understand and value money can be a challenge in our world especially when we consider what is “needed” and what is “wanted”.


As part of our Career Education Program through the District’s Success Plan (Smart Futures and Naviance), we provide lessons and resources on various topics including “How Money is Used” in the primary grades, to budgeting, financial literacy and entrepreneurship in the secondary grades. These are important lessons to help your daughter or son see a path to their future goals and a means to attain those goals. Ask your student to log onto these platforms and show you what they are learning.


Below is the link to the complete article by Professor Tay.
