A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

Welcome to the Month of March!


As is typical for this time of year, we have had a little taste of spring, but Mother Nature reminds us that winter isn't ready to leave, just yet! Nevertheless, we are gearing up for an exciting spring and planning for many of our Doyle traditions.


This past week, we celebrated our Soaring Eagles with an assembly about Character Building. DJ Reggie taught us some hip hop dancing while sharing his message to be Trustworthy, Respectful, Responsible, Fair, and Caring! This tied in very well with our Doyle 5 themes. Following the show, DJ Reggie took a few moments to talk with me. He was very impressed with our students and couldn't say enough positives about his experience here at Doyle! He was so excited to see the children and staff engaged, participating, and being so respectful during the show. I shared this with our students and expressed how proud we are, as they continue to display the Doyle 5, and how awesome it is that visitor to our school noticed that right away!


Great job, Soaring Eagles! I am so PROUD of you!!!

Thank you to our Doyle Home & School for helping to fund our assemblies!
