Dear Students, Families, & Friends,

Sharing one more poem from Father John V. Doyle School's Grandparents' Day celebration!

A Poem for Grandparents

written by Julia Thacker, grade 7

Thank you, grandparents, for all that you do.

Where would we be without you?

You set good examples. You show us the way.

You make us smile, even when we have a bad day.

You let us do things we probably shouldn’t.

You make us do things we thought we couldn’t.

You are not selfish. You are kind.

When we are tense, you help us unwind.

Just know that we love you,

And admire you too.

You are our inspiration,

And deserve much appreciation.

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

Mrs. Jae T. Smith

The Mission of Father John V. Doyle School is to provide students with a solid, well-rounded education based on Roman Catholic Tradition.

We live the Word of God in a caring, safe, and nurturing environment.

Silent/Live Auction 2019!

The Auction Committee is getting ready to start planning next year’s auction and would like your help! There are many aspects to planning an auction and everyone has a skill which we can use.

Can you type? Data entry people are needed.

Are you creative wrapping gifts? Join us to wrap auction baskets.

Do you have web design skills or are you able to create a booklet? You would be perfect to create our web page or to create the auction booklet.

In addition to the above, we need people to write thank you letters to our donors, create our Wine & Dine Mystery Bags, advertise our event, or help with soliciting donations, either in person or by typing the donation letters.

A little bit of your time and skills will help our auction be a great success. If you are willing to donate some of your time and skills, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
