Perfect Attendance

Perfect Attendance at Father John V. Doyle School is defined as zero days absent and no more than three days tardy. The benefits of being in attendance for classroom instruction are numerous. Certainly, nothing can replace the interaction between teacher and learner.

Students are able to keep up with their assignments, be present in school for special events, and develop and maintain positive relationships with their peers. Regular attendance also promotes the lifelong virtue of responsibility. Responsibility benefits students at home, school, and, in the future, their workplace.

Perfect attendance demonstrates the motivation of a student to be at school every day, and to overcome obstacles that stand in the way of his or her goals. It also involves a lot of hand-washing and a little luck to avoid illness when others around them are sick!

I am happy to recognize 4 students from our graduating Class of 2019 who have had perfect attendance during their eighth grade year. Congratulations to Matthew Amalfetano, Kerra Edwards, Brian Laboissonniere, and Julia Thacker.

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

Enrollment Referral Incentive is still available!

In an effort to increase enrollment at Father John V. Doyle School, and to reward existing families for their efforts in promoting our school, an Enrollment Referral Incentive is available!

  • Any current student’s family whose outreach and referral efforts result in a new family enrolling their child(ren) at FJVD in grades K-8 for the 2019- 2020 school year will receive a one-time tuition credit of $500 towards tuition for the 2019-2020 school year.

Program Conditions:

A parent/guardian from the referring family must:

  • complete and sign the referral form below to initiate the referral process.

The prospective family must:

  • have had no previous contact with the school regarding enrollment prior to the initiation of the referral process (retroactive referrals will not be accepted),
  • not be currently enrolled in our school’s pre-K, and
  • meet admission requirements as described on our website (

The referral credit for the referring family will be applied to tuition for the 2019-2020 school year if:

  • the new family’s child has continued to be enrolled in the school for a minimum of four months.

If two or more families refer the same new family, the referral credit will be divided equally among the referring families.

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!
