    Box Tops Fundraiser

    Way to go Eagles!! Doyle students have earned $1,425.50 from our Box Top collection. This is one of the highest profits we've ever made! Congratulations to Mr. Merrill's class who brought in a whopping 1,975 box tops. A special activity is in the works for them. A huge thank you to Mrs. Anderson and our sixth graders who organized and counted the box tops. This was a huge job!


    Parents, this is an painless fundraiser. Please tell your friends and families to save their box tops for us and start saving now for next year!
