FJVD Weekly Info

We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,


I look forward to seeing many of our grandparents and grandfriends this Monday as we celebrate Grandparents' Day! It is a beautiful reminder that our school community reaches far beyond the walls of Fr. Doyle. How blessed we are to have nearly 200 grandparents and grandfriends joining us!


A brief note regarding parking for Grandparents' Day. For those grandparents or grandfriends joining us who may have difficulty walking, there will be parking available to the side of the gym (east side parking lot). There will be signage to guide visitors. Thank you!


As mentioned last week, the school board will be holding an open session for all interested community members from 6:30-7:00pm on Tuesday, October 8th. Please note that open sessions are designed for parents and community members to share specific thoughts, questions, and concerns with the school board. With this in mind, the school board asks that you come prepared with specific discussion topics. If you would like to attend the Open Session, please RSVP at the link here.


Lastly, thank you so much for your support of our annual Walk-a-thon and Fun Run! Our Anython donation pages have already raised nearly $2,000, and we are still two weeks away from our event. This is wonderful! A reminder that there still time to create your Anython profile or collect donations through the print-copy Donations Form attached below.


As always, please take time to review the important Upcoming Dates and Reminders below to ensure you don't miss any exciting and important events including our Celebrate Life! Baby Shower, our Annual Flu Clinic, and Parent-Teacher Conferences!


Go Saints!


Sincerely,

Mr. Peloquin

Volunteer Opportunities

Yearbook Coordinators Needed


We are currently looking for parent volunteers interested in organizing our Yearbook efforts. This would include taking and collecting photographs, designing pages, and working together with our Lifetouch representatives to construct the yearbook itself. Good news! Lifetouch has moved to a more user-friendly design program. Little to no technical experience is required!


If you or someone you know may be interested in assisting with our Yearbook, please contact the school!

Fundraising & Contest Opportunities

Participate in the FJVD Certificate Program!


This program is a great way to reduce the cost of your tuition while supporting FJVDl!


The Process:

  • The school purchases shopping cards from all of your favorite stores
  • You purchase the cards from the school, paying face value and spending the same dollars you would have paid to the stores directly
  • The school earns a percentage discount offered by participating stores.


For each $50.00 you spend, you get a stamp on your Tuition Discount Card. Fill the entire card and redeem it for a $75.00 tuition credit!


Cards currently available include:

Stop & Shop, Applebee's, Barnes & Noble, Dave's, Dunkin Donuts Panera, Wal-Mart and more!


Stop by the school Monday-Friday 7:45am-8:15am, the Rectory Monday-Friday 1:45-2:15pm, or in the vestibule after the 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30am Sunday Masses to purchase your gift cards!

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 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.


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!
