FJVD Weekly Info...

We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

Happy (belated) 4th of July! I hope you were able to spend time with family and friends. How blessed we were to have such beautiful weather!

I am excited to announce a Back to School BBQ on Friday, August 23rd. It should be a great evening of food & fun. It is so important to take time to come together as a community simply to enjoy one another's company. See below for more details - don't forget to RSVP! In addition to the BBQ, our traditional Back to School Night will be held on Monday, August 26th.

Also, we are looking for a cross country coach for the Fall 2019 season. I had an opportunity to coach middle school cross country several years ago and appreciated the unique opportunity it provided me to teach young people important skills and habits for living a healthy lifestyle. If you or someone you know may be interested in coaching the team, please let me know!

I encourage you to take some time to review the information and announcements below. Wishing you the best over these summer months! Know of my continued prayers for you and your families.

Go Saints!

FJVD Certificate Program Runs Through the Summer!

This program is a great way to reduce the cost of your tuition while supporting FJVDl!

The Process:

  • The school purchases shopping cards from all of your favorite stores
  • You purchase the cards from the school, paying face value and spending the same dollars you would have paid to the stores directly
  • 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!

Stop by the school Wednesdays from 10am-12pm or in the vestibule after the 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30am Sunday Masses to purchase your gift cards!
