Dear Students, Families, and Friends,

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination, and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example. Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
  • Support Father John V. Doyle School's Book Fair! All are welcome!

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

The Book Fair will be open in the gym on:

April 4 > 7:30am - Noon

April 5 & 6 > 7:30am - 3pm

PLUS Family Night Thursday April 5th from 5:30pm – 8:00pm

If you are unable to attend the Book Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at Our Online Fair is available from March 28 through April 10.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit Father John V. Doyle School.

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

Mrs. Jae T. Smith
