Mitten Project – Helping Doyle Families in Need
Staff and students of Doyle Elementary School will be participating in a “Giving Project” again this year. Our goal is to provide food and gifts for Doyle families who need extra support.
Starting November 19, there will be a display of colorful mittens on the wall inside the main entrance of Doyle. Each mitten describes a special gift for a child or adult who is a recipient of the project.
If your family would like to purchase a gift for this project, please stop in and visit Doyle to select a mitten. After you take a mitten, you should buy the gift item listed, wrap it, and attach the mitten to the gift, so that it can be distributed properly.
All gifts need to be brought to Doyle by
Monday, December 14, 2015.
If your family would rather donate a monetary gift, please make checks payable to the Doyle Elementary School Activity Account. This money will be used to purchase extra food items or other gifts, as needed.
Thank you for your support in making an effort to help members of our Doyle community.
If you have any questions, please call Tracy Kowalchick at 267-893-4335.

Author Nancy Krulik visited Doyle
A magic wind blew through Doyle on Wednesday, November 18th and with it brought author Nancy Krulik. The students in grades 1-3 had a chance to create a silly story with Nancy and hear excerpts from two of her new books. They were also given the opportunity to ask lots of questions about her writing and creative process. Nancy told the kids that the best thing they could do to grow as writer is to READ!
We would like to thank Miss Ellen at Booktenders for giving our students this wonderful opportunity!
Thank you to Jonas Primiano and his Gigi for their generous donation of their winnings from the Fall Fest 50/50 raffle! Doyle readers will love Iggy Peck Architect, Extreme Animals, Kids Pick the Funniest Poems, 100 Things You Should Know about Extreme Survival, I Wonder, and Spirit Animals: Broken Ground and Spirit Animals: Immortal Guardians.
