From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

The 2021-2022 school year has officially come to a close!

Undoubtedly, we have concluded this year in a much different place than we started. In September of 2021, students and staff were wearing masks, large gatherings were largely untenable, and quarantines were a regular - and disruptive! - occurrence. Fast forward eight months, and students are no longer required to wear masks, we celebrated our Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 8th Grade graduations in-person, and quarantines are no longer considered necessary to ensure the health and safety of our school community.

And not all of the changes and improvements we saw this year were related to the pandemic! We also saw many other wonderful enhancements and "firsts" at Father Doyle School over the course of this year:

  • Mrs. Coutu joined our team as a full-time resource teacher, providing support services for students across the grade levels.
  • We implemented new learning materials to support the curriculum in religion (Grades 1-8) and English Language Arts (Grades 3-8).
  • The Ted Emmott Learning Center was completed, dedicated, and opened for student use using fall of 2021 Walk-a-thon funds - thank you for your support!
  • The 2022 Annual School Auction was a tremendous success, allowing us to purchase new classroom furniture for our 2nd and 8th grade classrooms, which will be ready for use at the start of the 2022-23 school year.
  • We completed work on a comprehensive 4-Year Strategic Plan. More information regarding implementation of the plan will be available at the start of the new year!
  • Enrollment continues to grow across the grade levels, with enrollment for the 2022-23 school year once again increasing from this past year.
  • And much, much more!

All of these changes are reason, perhaps for the first time since March of 2020, to look to the upcoming year with real joy and hope - with a quiet confidence and a sense that this will be a year in which Father Doyle School continues to grow, to evolve, and, most importantly, to shape our students into saints and scholars. I look forward to working and walking alongside you on this journey!

Over the summer, the FJVD Weekly Info Newsletter will continue on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule, so be sure to continue to read-up on our summer initiatives throughout the next few months!

Finally, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a restful, relaxing, and enjoyable summer break. May it bring you much peace and fulfillment. God bless you and your families!

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!
