As an added incentive, any child that sends 10 text messages through their dashboard to promote our fundraiser will automatically be registered in a nationwide drawing for the Walt Disney Theme Park trip.

One winner will be chosen each season out of all Read-a-thons held during that season.

Father Doyle Evening Story Time is BACK!

March is National Reading Month, and Father Doyle School will be celebrating all month long!

Weekly Evening Story Time via Zoom

Get cozy and relax, then join us for Story Time on Zoom every Tuesday in March beginning at 7pm. Each week we will have a special guest from the FJVD family reading a story live for our PK-2nd grade students. Older students are welcome to join as well!

Sign up for any (or all!) Tuesday's you would like to attend, and a separate Zoom invite will be sent out for each night. Please sign up for the first night by February 28th by visiting

Scheduling a Test for Your Symptomatic Student

If your child develops symptoms and is need of a PCR test to return to school, we recommend scheduling a drive-up test at the school. We usually receive results within 24-48 hours, which is must faster than the current turnaround time at state sites.

You can schedule that test here:

Please note, the link will be updated each week with the days that PCR testing is available. You do not need a new link each week.

We are only able to offer drive-up PCR testing on certain days based on the availability of our nurses. Thank you for your understanding!

COMING SOON: FJVD Read-a-thon!

The Annual Read-a-thon is returning to Father Doyle School!

Read-a-thons get your reader excited about reading and give friends and family the opportunity to encourage your child to read even more!

Our Read-a-thon will start Monday, March 28, 2022. About one week before our Read-a-thon starts we will send home instructions on how to activate your reader's personal page. This is where you will be able to view and record their progress. We encourage you to activate your reader’s account at that time by clicking on and following the simple instructions.

We've chosen a Read-a-thon because it will not take much of your time, it gives your child a reason to read, and promoting regular reading helps in the development of stronger reading skills. We hope everyone can participate!

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!
