FJVD Weekly Info

We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

Thank you to everyone who has supported our #FJVD Strong Auction! Whether you volunteered your time preparing items, donated to a class basket, or placed bids on a few items, we are so grateful for your support. We're looking forward to joining you this evening LIVE at 7:00pm on Facebook for our Auction Closing. It's sure to be a great evening!

As the 2019-2020 academic year comes to a close over the next two weeks, there is of course a sadness in knowing that the conclusion of this year will look much different than years' past. While we wish more than anything that we could be together in our school building, we are nonetheless determined to make the end of this year a memorable one for more reasons than just the current crisis. The event details below provide more information on how we plan to finish out this year FJVD Strong!

Virtual Awards Nights - Tuesday, June 2nd, 7:00pm

  • All students and families in grades three through eight are invited to a Virtual Awards Night. Information on how to join the Awards Night Zoom Webinar was sent to families via email on Thursday. If you did not receive the information, or are having difficulty accessing the link provided, please contact the school for assistance.

#FJVDStrong Virtual Field Day - Thursday, June 4th All Day

  • Field Day is next Thursday, June 4th! There will be no academic assignments that day, but we will be sending you a special video message from Mrs. Wheeler with some ideas for fun, easy activities. Your classroom teacher will send the video and information that morning, the same way you would receive regular assignments. Remember, field day activities are completely voluntary. We just want to provide you with some end-of-the-year fun! We look forward to seeing you out there! More details can be found in the Field Day description here.

8th Grade Graduation Celebration - Saturday, June 6th 1:00pm

  • Detailed information regarding our Graduation Celebration was sent to 8th grade families on Wednesday. For insight into the planning of this event, see my message to 8th graders here. You can find the Graduation Information attachment here. A reminder to please RSVP to the school Mass no later than Tuesday, June 2nd. We're looking forward to celebrating our graduates!

Town Hall Meeting for Families - Monday, June 8, 7:00pm

  • Undoubtedly, there are many questions about how school will look in the fall. While we cannot fully predict what late August and early September will bring, we can work to be well prepared for a multitude of scenarios. To this end, I will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting via Zoom on Monday, June 8th beginning at 7:00pm. During this meeting, the initial findings of the Fall Preparedness team will be shared, and families will have an opportunity to ask additional questions. More information, including the Zoom invitation, will be available next week.

End of School Year Mass - Friday, June 12, 1:00pm

  • Traditionally, we would hold a school-wide Mass on the last day of school. While it may not be possible to hold this Mass in person, we are still planning on holding our End-of-Year Mass on Friday, June 12th at 1pm. The Mass will be livestreamed on Facebook. We hope to "see" you there!

Pick Up and Drop Off Days

Also, don't forget to order your Yearbook for what has certainly been an eventful year! Visit the Lifetouch website: and enter our Yearbook ID code 1866620 to order! Please note that all 8th grade students will receive a complimentary yearbook. No need to order!

Speaking of Yearbooks, we would like to include a few pages that capture our distance learning journey over these past few months. Would you be willing to send along a few of your favorite distance learning moments to be included in our Yearbook and other end of year online celebrations? Please email your photos to

Have a great weekend everyone! I look forward to finishing the next two weeks FJVD Strong!

God bless and Go Saints!

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!
