From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

I hope this message finds you well! We've entered the real dog days of summer, and I hope you're staying cool and staying dry with the rain we've been having.

While it may be the middle of summer, we're continuing our preparations for the 2021-2022 school year, including:

  • New textbooks have arrived, including our new 6-8 ELA series and new novel studies for our students in grades 3-5
  • The finishing touches are being put on the new school roof
  • Permanent, NBA-grade basketball hoops are being installed on the sport court in the upcoming week
  • FACTS Family Portal training sessions are being prepared, with dates and details being sent of families soon!

In addition to these continued efforts, please be sure to carefully review the announcements and information below:

COVID-19 Guidance Updates

I know many families are eagerly anticipating specific guidance regarding masking, distancing, and other policies for the 2021-2022 school year at Father Doyle. Earlier this week, administration met with representatives from the Rhode Island Department of Health as well as school leaders from across the state.

Based on these meetings and extensive work and research conducted over the past several weeks, we are prepared to release the first draft our our return to school plan to families on Wednesday, August 4th.

The plan will be sent to families via email on the morning of Wednesday, August 4th and we will hold a School Community Town Hall Meeting via Zoom on August 4th beginning at 7:00pm. Please note that we have decided to use the Zoom format in order to accommodate those families who may be traveling over the summer months or have who may have difficulty arranging for childcare. The Zoom link will be sent via email in the coming week.

Back to School Night 2021 - Mark Your Calendars!

Our Annual Back to School Night is scheduled for Tuesday, August 24th. Additional information, including locations, times, and other details will be made available in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you there as we kick off our 2021-2022 school year!

Lastly, the school office remains open from 8am-1pm, Monday-Friday (and by appointment outside of these hours) throughout the summer. If you need anything or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a blessed week ahead!

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!
