Students Represent Doyle at the San Diego Board of Education Meeting

Some of our students had the opportunity to represent Doyle Elementary at the Board of Education meeting on February 14th. Our Kindness Ambassadors and No Place For Hate leaders showcased the activities, events, and programs we have here at Doyle. They set the bar high and really impressed the Board.

Thank you to our students, staff, and families that were involved in the process and thank you to the SDUSD Board Members for having us!

If you'd like to see the students present, here is a link to the recording:

Doyle Jog-a-thon

Our Jog-a-thon is off to a good start, thank you for your support! If you haven't done so, please take a minute to go to to register your child, watch our video and share their page with family and friends. Registration is FREE and all students that register will receive a prize and be entered into our drawings for 100+ prizes! Anyone that registers by 2/25 will be entered in a drawing for 4 museum tickets to one of 2 museums (San Diego Air & Space, San Diego Natural History).

This is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year, so please consider donating and sharing with friends and family to spread our fundraising message world-wide! Translations, classroom leaderboard, and information on what we use Jog-a-thon funds for can be found here:
