From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

As we approach the Thanksgiving break beginning on Wednesday, November 24th, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of our school. As we look forward to this time for rest and recuperation, it is also a time for meaningful reflection. Thinking back to the start of my time at Father Doyle in the fall of 2019, so much has transpired that we could not have imagined. Yet, we also have much for which to be thankful.

Much more than just the facilities upgrades we have been able to make, the improvements to textbooks and curricula, or our steadily growing enrollment, I am most thankful for - and most inspired by - the people that I have met in my time here. From the dedication of our staff, to the support and encouragement of our parents, to the joy and enthusiasm of our students, it's an honor to serve the members of this school community.

It is not always easy, and the last twenty-one months have undoubtedly been challenging, but the people in this community make the setbacks that much easier to navigate, and the victories that much sweeter to celebrate. And for that, I am truly thankful.

Aluminum Can Tab Collection

What: Aluminum can tabs are being collected

Why: To support the Ronald McDonald House in Providence

How can you help? Save can tabs and send them in to Mr. Godin’s room.

Bottle Cap Drive

We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This provides new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply send in bottle caps or product codes from boxes of beverages and our school receives a donation.

All caps and codes should be sent to Mr. Godin. Codes will be entered on one account to gain larger and quicker donations.

Thank you!
