FJVD Weekly Info

We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

We've made it through the first week of virtual and at-home learning! Thank you to all of our staff and teachers who have made this possible, and to all of our students and families for their continued patience and support.

Based on family feedback, we have made some adjustments to our online learning guidelines for the week ahead. Those are detailed in the document attached below labeled "Updated Information for Online Learning." In addition, particularly if you have a student in our older grades (approximately 5th-8th grade), I would encourage you to review the Video Conference Guidelines attached below. Parents, please check your emails for more information.

If you are anything like me, one of the things you have missed most this week is the sense of community that exists at Fr. Doyle. Truthfully, there is no way to replicate what occurs five days a week within the walls of our school, but I want you to know we are making every effort to maintain a sense of community in these difficult times. Here's a few ways:

1. Livesteaming Mass & Other Events

We are blessed that Fr. Woolley is able to livestream the Mass, as he did this past Thursday in celebration of the Solemnity of St. Joseph. In the end, over 150 people from across the Fr. Doyle community were able to view the Mass "together" during the livestream.

I know Fr. Woolley has plans to livestream future Masses as well. Stay tuned for more events that we can take part in together from the comfort of our own homes.

2. The Morning Minute

While we cannot all be together for our traditional morning assembly, at the very least I've been providing brief, one-minute updates each day which I call the Morning Minute. Here is the Morning Minute from today - March 20th:

The Morning Minute is available each weekday on our Facebook page and via our school Youtube channel.

3. Video Conferencing Across the Grade Levels

Over the past two days, I've been able to join several video conference calls from across the grade levels from 1st/2nd grade show & tell to middle school science and literature discussions. While it can never replace meeting in person, at the very least these calls provide us with a chance to reconnect with one another and stay in touch.

I hope that these efforts will help you and your family continue to feel connected to the great things happening through the hard work of our teachers and staff. These next two weeks will still have their challenges and setbacks; however, we still have our Catholic identity, we still have our mission, and we still have our commitment to the common good. We've got this.

Know of my continued prayers for you and your family during this difficult time.

God bless and Go Saints!

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 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.

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!
