From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

We're so excited for our Annual Car Show and Vendor Fair tomorrow! It's looking like we will have great weather, and I would encourage all of our families to stop by to visit our vendors, see our cars, and enjoy some music, food, and fun! A tremendous thank you to our volunteers who have made this event possible through their hard work and dedication over the past weeks and months. See the flyer below for details!

We are also thrilled to announce that theater is returning to Father Doyle School! Mrs. Burns will once again be directing our students in a production of "All Together Now!" - a global performance event celebrating local theater. The show is open to all students in grades 4-8 and is FREE to join. You can find more information in the flyer here. If your student is interested in participating, please complete the Google Form here.

Lastly, I hope you will join me in praying this brief prayer in remembrance of lives lost on September 11, 2001 as we commemorate the 20th anniversary this weekend:

God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world:
peace in the hearts of all men and women
and peace among the nations of the earth.

God of understanding,
overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy,
we seek your light and guidance.

Comfort and console us,
strengthen us in hope,
and give us the wisdom and courage
to work tirelessly for a world
where true peace and love reign
among nations and in the hearts of all.

-Pope Benedict XVI, Prayer at Ground Zero, April 2008

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!
