Dress Code

With the warm weather approaching, you may want to remind your children that some summer outfits are not appropriate for school. All students are expected to demonstrate acceptable taste in their dress habits. Students are asked to avoid extreme short pants, tops with exposed mid-drifts, and any t-shirts with offensive or tobacco/alcohol-related images. Some hot weather outfits are appropriate for a 5 year-old child, but not appropriate for a more mature 12 or 13 year old student.
The following are guidelines for warm weather apparel for all students:
  1. All clothes should be clean, neat and in good taste
  2. Sandals or beach footwear are not appropriate for school
  3. Biking shorts are not permitted
  4. Halter and crop tops for girls are not permitted
  5. Students may not wear destructive clothing or footwear, i.e. rivets, cleats, ornamental belts, etc.
  6. Indecent and unsavory slogans, expressions, etc. are not to be worn on clothing
  7. Any attire the administration considers to interfere with quality of education shall not be permitted.
Adherence to proper dress standards will help to insure an appropriate school image for our students and a learning environment free of unnecessary distraction. Thank you for your cooperation on this issue.

Pocket Meadow Coming to Doyle!

Doyle Elementary has been selected to receive a pocket meadow from Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. This special habitat would serve as an outdoor classroom that supports and enhances current curriculum as well as provides food and shelter for native pollinators and butterflies. The installation date is yet to be determined. The Garden Committee is looking for committed volunteers who can help with one or more of the following things:

  • help prepare the habitat site
  • help install the plants
  • be part of the water and weed crew (post planting).

If you would like to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity, please email Garden Committee Chair Barbara Kielbania at barbk09@yahoo.com. We will keep you updated as the project progresses. Thanks!

Volunteers for Garden Committee Needed

The garden committee is also planning to plant a vegetable garden in the fenced in area behind the school. We need volunteers to help weeding, preparing the soil, and planting and tending to the vegetables in the spring, throughout the summer and into the fall.

If you are interested to help, please contact Barb Kielbania at barbk09@yahoo.com.
