Rock Out with a Book!
Join us this summer to earn that super prize for your class and your teacher for the fall. Click here for details.
Classes with 100% participation will earn money for their classroom library. The class with most books read will earn a special recess period.
Electronic Devices at School
Parents, please read School Board Policy 829 regarding electronic devices in school. It is important that our children understand that electronic devices need to be kept in their book bags in the off position. Students are also prohibited from taking pictures on the bus.
Arrival Procedure Reminder
If you are dropping your child off in the morning, please do not get out of your car. Have your child get out on the passenger side of your car so he/she does not have to cross the car lane. Also, please take time before leaving home for farewell hugs and kisses. This procedure will ensure that children in cars behind you will get to school on time and parents will not be late for work. Thank you for your cooperation.
6th Grade Studies Real Life System Interactions
Sixth grade students are studying the human body and how its systems interact and work together. They got a brief glimpse into real-life applications of this knowledge during classroom presentations from Doyle parents. Mrs. Burn, a speech pathologist at Doylestown Hospital, gave details about the interaction of the respiratory and nervous system and speech. Mr. Perakslis, a scientist with the Food and Drug Administration, imparted his great knowledge of how technology and medicine are connecting for better patient treatment and recovery. Finally, Mrs. Hotham, who manages multiple labs at Merck, educated the students in the circulatory system and how vaccines are made and keep us well. The students walked away with a greater appreciation of the body and how today’s learning will aid them in future paths.
Breakfast with Ghandi
Jaden Caperelli joined Arun Ghandi, grandson on Mahatma Ghandi, for a breakfast discussion at the Peace Center. Jaden will share his experience with his classmates.
Cooper Tyksinski, Kyle Flaherty, Gavin Johnson, DJ Vessichelli, Jackson Estes and Carter Philo participated in DAA's All Star game on Friday night.
To the Doyle Community
My return to Doyle a few years ago will end this year as a result of an assignment change. I would like to thank the students and parents for three outstanding years of having the honor of being one of Doyle’s art staff. Student effort and talent combined with strong parental support has been very much appreciated.
I know the Doyle students will continue to soar! Hope to see you all at next year’s District Art Show.
