Plenty of parents attended our mid-year awards assembly this morning. Students were recognized for academics, behavior, and attendance. On behalf of the Doyle staff, thank you parents for all your hard work and dedication!
Dionne Murch of Office Max, in collaboration with the Tulare County Board of Supervisors, donated a computer to Doyle 6th grader Santiago Nunez. Santiago's teacher, Ms. Baca, nominated Santiago in early December. She emphasized that Santiago's enthusiasm, work ethic, and responsibility in the classroom proved he was deserving of such a great gift.
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is getting our students prepared to compete for the jobs of the future. Throughout the Doyle campus, students are taking part in various activities and projects that will give them a solid foundation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. PLTW promotes student engagement, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and fun.
