Spring Open House Sunday April 7

Father John V. Doyle School will be holding our Spring Open House on Sunday, April 7, from 9am - 11am! We invite prospective students, their families, and SSJP parishioners to join us and Discover the Doyle Difference! We are asking our current families to please Spread the Word!

Tours of the school will be conducted for families to learn about our educational programs and extracurricular activities. Administration, faculty, and staff will be available to answer questions and to accept applications for the 2019-2020 school year.

We hope it will be a morning full of many visitors coming to see our wonderful Pre-K through Grade 8 classrooms, and to meet our exceptional faculty and staff! Again, please be sure to share information of our Open House with your family, friends, and neighbors!

As always, Thank You for your support of Father John V. Doyle School!

Bottle Cap Drive

We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This opens up Father John V. Doyle School to 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. We have already received one check for almost $50 with low key promotion. Now it’s time to “kick it up a notch.”

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!

You are invited to the next Open Session of the School Board!

The next School Board meeting will be held on Monday, April 22, in the rectory conference room and the Open Session will begin at 6:30pm. Space in the conference room is limited. For seating purposes, please let Mrs. Smith know if you plan on attending. Thank you!
