A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

Health & Safety Plan Updates

On March 8th, our school board voted on a revised health and safety plan. Our staff and students were very excited to be able to rearrange their classrooms for the first time in two years.


Registration for New Students

As a reminder, enrollment for new students in grades K-6 is ongoing. If you have new student attending CBSD in the fall of 2022, now is the time to register! Please see the link to register under the "Resources & Quick Links for Families" section of this newsletter.


Family Fun Night - BINGO

Family Fun BINGO Night is back in person this year! We hope you will join us on Wednesday evening for a St. Patrick's Day themed BINGO night. Doors open at 6:15 PM.


Avenue of the Arts Shows Are Back!

We are so excited to have our grade level Avenue of the Arts shows return this spring. For many of our new families and students in current grades 1-3, they have never experienced an Avenue of the Arts at Doyle. It was during some conversations last week that we realized that some of our younger families were not familiar with these evenings.


Avenue of the Arts is an evening filled with music and art displays for our various grade levels. Our music teacher, Mrs. Morehouse will direct each grade level with some song selections and our art teachers, Mrs. Alderfer & Mrs. Noone will display grade level art work in our hallways. Parents and special guests are invited to these evening shows.


Students in grades 1-4 have designated evenings for their grade level show. Our 5th & 6th graders are featured in our spring concert with chorus, band, and orchestra.


Please see the "Save the Dates" for each Avenue of the Arts show coming up in May. We look forward to seeing you on those evenings as we continue to support and showcase the arts in Central Bucks.


  • Monday, May 16th - Grades 1 at 6:30 PM & Grade 2 at 7:30 PM
  • Monday, May 23rd - Grades 3 at 6:30 PM & 4 at 7:30 PM
  • Wednesday, May 25th - Spring Concert - Orchestra, Choir, Band in Grades 4, 5, & 6 at Lenape MS at 7:00 PM


Early Dismissal Days this Month

Please remember that early dismissal for grades 1-6 is at 11:55 AM. The following days are early dismissal days: 3/17 & 3/18.


Report Cards

Report cards will be available for families to view in Parent Portal on March 22nd at 1:00 PM. I want you to be aware that teachers may not report on all the report card descriptors in the second trimester. The descriptors they do not report on will be gray or they will be left blank. This is not a mistake. Students have either not yet had formal instruction on all the skills they will learn this year (math) or information on that indicator is incorporated into another indicator (reading). As always, our teachers are looking forward to celebrating your child’s progress at the upcoming conference.


Have a wonderful week,

Mrs. Fantaskey
