A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

Family Fun BINGO: Thank you to our Doyle Home & School Association and all of our families who participated in our St. Patty's Day themed BINGO family fun night last week. We had over 200 participants join us for this event and much fun was had by all! Thank you to our 6th graders who volunteered their time to assist, too. We have included some photos in this newsletter.


Rock Your Socks: Thank you to all of our students and staff who participated in Rock Your Socks for World Down Syndrome Day. Every class participated and enjoyed learning the importance of accepting, embracing, and including each other as we celebrate our similarities and differences. A special Thank You to the Adams Family for donating gift cards to the Doylestown Book Store for books for classroom libraries. Congratulations to the winning classes: Mrs. Kille & Mrs. Gunning. I am sure they will enjoy their new classroom books.


Parent Conferences: It has been great to see many parents and students for in person conferences. As Jimmy Casas says, Trust is cultivated when we take the time to personally invest our time in others. I truly believe that our conference time is one of the most important opportunities we have as educators - the time to meet with families as we share a vested interest in your child's development academically, socially, emotionally, and overall well-being. Thank you for your trust and partnership in your child's educational journey.


Parent Portal Opens on 3/22/22: The parent portal opens for parents to view 2nd trimester progress reports on Tuesday, March 22nd at 1:00 PM. If you need assistance with the parent portal page, follow the link for Parent Portal Information on the CBSD website, or reach out to Mrs. Ernst in the main office.


Kind regards,

Mrs. Fantaskey

Counselor's Corner

Below is a Sparks newsletter article we sent out almost two years ago. The topic is still very relevant. Please take the time to watch with your children for some interesting and needed discussion.


In today’s world we are all trying to know what is best for our children, but it is difficult to see what lies ahead for them. The Sparks video below gives some economic insight into the past, present, and future. Please share your reactions to this video with you children for their own understanding of future possibilities.
