From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

Thank you for joining us yesterday evening for another Virtual Town Hall meeting. If you were not able to attend, you can find the slide deck from the presentation here. Do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions or concerns.

We are excited to share Part II of our Reopening Father Doyle video series, which details school entrances for our different grade levels. By spreading out entrances across three locations, we can minimize crowding and ensure appropriate social distancing. You can check out the video below:

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!
