A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

I hope you were able to enjoy some fun in the snow ~ a snowstorm always brings out the child in all of us! Although it was a bit blustery, hopefully that was quickly cured with some hot chocolate!

A few weeks ago, we partnered with Doylestown Borough to assist in naming their snow plow fleet. The Borough asked the three borough schools to take part in the fun. Each of our homerooms selected a name to submit to the borough. To add a little fun, we asked our students and staff to vote on the top three for our school. We shared the top three names along with the names of all homeroom submissions to the Public Works Department. We are very excited to learn that two of the Doyle names were selected, as each driver selected the name for their truck.

The names chosen from Doyle were: Baby Snowda & Shovel McWonder Nugget

Baby Snowda - submitted by both Mrs. Gunning & Mr. Blair's homeroom

Shovel McWonder Nugget - submitted by Mrs. Travaglini's Class

In the coming weeks, the public works department will have lettering completed for each truck, and we hope to view the newly named trucks soon!

Winter Enrichment Begins Next Week

Our after school winter enrichment classes will begin next week, 2/7/22. A big thank you to Mrs. Jessica Schmidt, Ms. Sarah Ruth, & Mr. Marc Ragnauth for their work in coordinating these events with our students, of course, Mrs. Ernst also does a lot of help behind the scenes to make sure the classes are up and running, too!

More communication will be sent this week to share dismissal procedures for parents and students when they come to pick up their children. As a reminder, classes end at 4:30 PM. We ask all parents to be prompt when picking up, as the office closes at 4:30 PM each day.

We are looking forward to a great experience this year!

VH1 Save the Music Event

Congratulations on a wonderful performance to those students from across the district who participated in the VH-1 Save the Music event at Holicong this weekend. Doyle was represented by Lucy Houston, Samantha Hooven, Ellie Rosato, Reece Visconto, Emily Van Why, Tori Taurino, Clara DaBoer, Valentina Murtha, and Adelyn Valmore. Thank you to our music teacher, Ms. Feliciano (Morehouse) for her work and dedication to our music programs and students.

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 – 12:20 PM
  • PM Students 1:30PM – 3:15 PM

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.
