A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

American Education Week

American Education Week is an opportunity to visit your child’s classroom and watch your children in action as they learn something new, participate in a curricular activity, or give a special presentation for visitors. This year, Central Bucks invites you to join us the week of November 14-18, 2022.

The visitation schedule for your child’s grade level provides one targeted time to visit so that we can concentrate efforts, and accommodate parking, traffic flow, etc. We ask parent/guardians to adhere to this schedule. Teachers will follow their normal schedule and routines of teaching lessons and engaging students. Please take this opportunity to share a mathematics, reading language arts, or science/social studies lesson with your child. Please remember that cell phone use while in the school is not permitted, and that this is an adults only visit. Out of respect for our students, teachers, and the learning process, we ask that parents not bring younger siblings into the classrooms.

All visitors will need to bring their photo ID, to sign in at the main office through the School Gate Guardian System before entering the classrooms. We are asking all parents to RSVP by clicking on the link below. You will need to complete the RSVP for each classroom you plan to visit.

Doyle Elementary American Education Week RSVP

This will help us to know who is planning to attend and will give us time to pre-print visitor labels to help with the arrival of our guests. If you are not scanned into the system, please stop by our main office prior to 11/11/2022. If not, we will scan your ID on the day of your visit. We ask for your patience, as this may take some time with multiple visitors.

We look forward to welcoming you to Doyle Elementary and sharing as partners in your child’s learning.

Thanksgiving Share

During this Thanksgiving season, the staff and students of Doyle Elementary School plan to share the spirit of this time of warmth, caring, and love with families from our local neighborhood. We would like to share this project as an entire school community and create Thanksgiving food boxes for our families who need extra support. Through this cooperative effort of Doyle’s staff, students, parents and community members, we can realize again the valuable lesson that real joy in life comes from sharing.

Please help us by clicking on the link below and reading the list, which will tell you what each classroom is asked to contribute.

The Thanksgiving Share collection will be

from Wednesday, November 9 to Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

If you would like to donate a gift card for a family or make a monetary donation that would be used to purchase food for the collection, please send the donation in an envelope marked “Attention Ms. Kowalchick / Thanksgiving Share” and include your name and contact information.

Thank you!

**Please understand that this project is purely voluntary.**

Thank you for your care and support!

6th Grade Clear Touch Panel = Student Engagement

Mrs. Cirulli's call used the Clear Touch for writing analysis. using a mentor text and blank page on the screen, students were able to identify and note elements of a personal narrative. Everyone was engaged and part of the thinking process that was necessary to break down the mentor text and use is as a springboard for the students' narrative stories. Great way to incorporate this technology tool to increase student engagement!

Kindergarten Registration for 2023-2024 now open

Please visit for more details, including necessary documents to gather in order to register your kindergarten students. Children need to be 5 years by August 31, 2022 in order to start Kindergarten.
