News From the Nest

Forgotten Homework

Reminder: Parents are encouraged not to bring in forgotten homework. Generally children will learn responsibility and maturity more quickly if they develop an understanding of consequences and following procedures. Similarly, we discourage parents from bringing their children back to school following dismissal to retrieve forgotten assignments. For security reasons the classrooms are locked when teachers leave the building. Again, children will learn responsibility and the need for organization through these experiences.

Wing Tips

Read Across America

Thank you to the Delaware Valley College of Education students who visited with our fourth through sixth grade students to Celebrate Read Across America. The college students read this plus that by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and opened up a lively conversation about equations of life. The Delaware Valley students created a lesson that tapped into our children’s higher level thinking. This was a rewarding partnership for our Doyle students.

Family Fitness Night

Mucho Kudos to Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Wong for hosting our Family Fitness Night! We had a gym full of families who got their hears pumping and their bodies moving . What a fun evening!

Author Visit - Lee Harper

Many thanks to author and illustrator extraordinaire, Lee Harper, for sharing his stories and art with all the students at Doyle. Our students had a great time hearing his stories and discovering their inner artist while mirroring Mr. Harpers drawing techniques. Mr. Harper, once again has generously donated his time and talent to benefit Doyle students. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
