From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

Over the past several weeks, the school community has been united in prayer for Father John Duggan, who has served as priest in residence at Ss. John and Paul Parish for more than 24 years. Fr. Duggan passed away peacefully at the rectory yesterday afternoon, with his sister, Fr. Woolley and caregiver Renée Johnson at his bedside. Funeral arrangements will be announced this weekend and posted on our Parish website and social media.

Thank you to the students, staff and families who have been praying and sending cards for Fr. JD, and special thanks to Nurse Patti for her daily visits with him. "Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord, and let Perpetual Light shine upon him!"

Uniform Policies for the 2021-2022 School Year

The school is aware that ordering and receiving uniforms has been especially difficult this year. While it is important that students continue to adhere to the dress code, we understand that - based on uniform availability - some additional options may be necessary in order for our parents to easily and cost effectively dress their child(ren) in uniform. With this in mind, please carefully review the FJVD Uniform Policy Amendments for the 2021-2022 academic year provided here. Please note that these uniform policy amendments are only valid for the 2021-2022 school year. If you need help finding uniform items please contact Mrs. Marra at You may also complete the Used Uniform Request Form. Thank you!

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!
