From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

"They said to one another, 'were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?'"

Luke 24:32

Thank you for a wonderful first week of school! As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we remain committed to moving forward together - continuing to strengthen the partnership between home and school, bringing passion and joy to learning, and uniting in prayer with one another. It has been a blessing welcoming students back over the past several days, and I cannot wait to see what the year ahead holds for our school community!

Check out photos from our first two days below!

In addition, please be sure to review the following announcements and information carefully:

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!
