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!

Welcome Parents, Students and Friends to our Read-a-thon!

This year, we are excited to announce that we will hold a Read-a-thon fundraiser. Our

Read-a-thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to

encourage reading and to build literacy skills.

The main focus of the Read-a-thon is for everyone to know we are committed to

improving reading skills. To that end, the Read-a-thon promises to be a fun, exciting

journey for all participants as they begin a personal Reading Adventure that challenges

each reader to complete 10 reading sessions over our 2-week event.

Our Read-a-thon will start April 1, 2019.

Approximately 1 week before we start our first reading session we will send home

paperwork with your reader explaining how you will activate their personal Read-a-thon


You will know that we have distributed the take home sheet because we will also place

a green Read-a-thon bracelet around your child’s wrist as a reminder.

We understand that, as parents, you have high expectations for the quality of your

child’s education but also have limited time.

That’s why we chose to hold a Read-a-thon.

You will find this to be the easiest fundraiser possible. By simply activating your

reader’s personal page and using the promotional tools found there, friends and family

anywhere in the world can show their support for your reader by making a donation to

our Read-a-thon.

Your involvement in the Read-a-thon will help your child develop a lasting love of


We hope each one of you will activate your child’s personal page the day your child

brings home their paperwork. Hopefully they will be wearing their green bracelet as
