We Live the Word!

Dear Student, Families, & Friends,

This coming week, I will be visiting a school on Cape Cod as the chairperson of a NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) accreditation team. NEASC accreditation has two interrelated purposes: school improvement and quality assurance. The school I will visit has undergone a comprehensive self-evaluation over the past few years which will be the foundation and focus of the team.

The visiting team is composed of peers from other member schools throughout New England. We will provide the school with observations and recommendations in an effort to validate their self-study. This process will determine the school's compliance with the Standards for Accreditation and assist the school in setting direction for future improvement.

The immediate task of the four-day visit is to understand the school on its own terms and to validate the self-study. We will then write a report which will comment on the self-study and include recommendations designed to further school improvement.

This will be my fifth NEASC visit, second as chairperson, and each one has proven to be a valuable experience. The teams I have worked on have not only provided an important service to the schools we visited, but have also given me opportunities to observe innovative educational programs. Schools are always willing to share best practices with our teams which we can bring back and implement in our own schools!

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

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. We have already received one check for almost $50 with low key promotion. Now it’s time to “kick it up a notch.”

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!

You are invited to the next Open Session of the School Board!

The next School Board meeting will be held on Monday, April 22, in the rectory conference room and the Open Session will begin at 6:30pm. Space in the conference room is limited. For seating purposes, please let Mrs. Smith know if you plan on attending. Thank you!
