FJVD Weekly Info...

We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

It was a pleasure to meet with families after the morning Masses this past Sunday, July 28th. We are blessed to be part of such a vibrant parish community. I was particularly struck by how many parishioners stopped by the table after Mass to express their great love for the school and share memories of their time here. I even met one couple whose children started at the school when the new building opened in 1966! It was a beautiful reminder of the tremendous legacy we carry on today.

Below you will find a detailed schedule for our Back to School Night on August 26th. In addition, times are now listed for our Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Middle School Orientations on Wednesday, August 28th. Planning is well underway for these events, and more details will follow - stay tuned!

Don't forget to RSVP for our Back to School BBQ! Looking forward to a great evening with family, friends, and lots of food!

Go Saints!

FJVD Certificate Program Runs Through the Summer!

  • 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!

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!
