Dear Students, Families, & Friends,

Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy our Annual Car Show last weekend! We are happy to announce that what began 4 years ago as a fun social event has now grown into a successful fundraiser as well! Our volunteers have been working hard to create a day with something for everyone and we are so very grateful for their efforts! The event which was held on September 15 raised over $2100 - three times more than past years! Many thanks to our chairperson, Mrs. Debbie Moone, and her creative, hard-working team!

The Father John V. Doyle school family would like to thank Karen Veltri, a parishioner of Saints John & Paul Church, for her successful efforts in making our gardens beautiful once again! She has worked tirelessly on weekends, holidays, and at other times to plant, weed, water, and more! In addition, she has been tending to our teak benches at the main entrance of the school. Thanks to her care, these benches not only look brighter and more inviting, they now have a protective coating against the weather!

We hope you will take a few minutes to check out and enjoy our gardens!

Installation Mass for Father Woolley!

Please join our school and parish community to celebrate the Installation of our new pastor, Father Woolley on Sunday, September 30 @ 11:30am.

All students who attend this special Mass in full school uniform will receive a no-uniform day!

Singing Saints at Providence Bruins, Saturday, October 6

One of our very generous parishioners has graciously donated a family-four-pack of tickets for the game! If you are interested in attending - and seeing our Singing Saints On Ice! - but were not able to purchase tickets, please contact Mrs. Smith!

Basketball Registration Open!

We are now accepting registrations for CAL Basketball for Girls Grammar, Boys Grammar, and Boys Junior teams. If your child is interested, please complete the registration form below and return to the office by October 1. Registration fees will be announced after that date.

We currently do not have a coach for a Girls Junior team which would consist mainly of 4th grade students but could include 3rd grade. If you would like to coach this team, please contact Mrs. Smith! Thank you!

NEW! PTO Facebook group!

The PTO would like to invite parents, teachers, and families at Father John V. Doyle School to join the PTO Facebook group! Our PTO team will maintain the group to provide an online community where families can get information about events, share volunteer opportunities, be able to ask questions, and have a chance to give your opinion through surveys and open discussions.

If you are on Facebook, please join the group at:

Please call 401-222-2080 to say:

"I am calling to inform Governor Raimondo that I want her to raise the cap on the Education Corporate Tax Credit Program."

That's all there is to it! Thank you for calling!

RI Catholic School Parent Federation

Father John V. Doyle School needs two parent liaisons to join the Parents Federation. Please contact Mrs. Smith if you can fill this role!

The Rhode Island Catholic School Parents Federation organizes parents to assure equal opportunities for quality education to all who desire it. It is committed to educating, advocating and mobilizing Catholic school parents, public policy-makers and the public at large to ensure that Catholic school students and parents receive all the rights and privileges to which they are entitled. Its primary purpose is to maintain state and federally mandated services which include student transportation, health and special education services, textbook loans and federal entitlement grants and services. A secondary purpose is to provide parents with access to public tax funds which may include tax credits, tax deductions and educational opportunity scholarships.

For more information, call the Catholic School Office at (401) 278-4550.
