To our Monsignor Doyle Community:

First and foremost, we hope that this message finds you and your families well. To say that this school year is like no other that we have experienced is an understatement. Between labor unrest and a worldwide Covid Pandemic, we have all been challenged to be flexible and “pivot on the head of a dime” in our approaches to the way we do things in our new normal.

As proud as we are of our staff, we are even more appreciative of the efforts of our students and parent community in the way you have negotiated all of these challenges. Parents, thank you for your patience with our staff as we switched from face-to-face to a distance learning model. You have truly been role models for your children on resilience and how to face adversity. Many of the most valuable lessons your children learned this year were not learned in the classroom, but at the kitchen table.

While the end of the school year is a time for celebration, it is also a time for bittersweet farewells. To our families that are leaving us, thank you for entrusting your child to us for the past 4 years. It has been an honor to learn and grow with, and from, them.

All the best to our graduates. Thank you for making Doyle the dynamic school that it is. We will see you in October for our Grad ceremony. Best wishes for your continued success in your chosen destination in the world of work, apprenticeship or post secondary education.

We would also like to take the opportunity to wish Mrs. Cathy Barr, Mathematics teacher, all the best in her retirement. You will be missed by staff and students.

Although we don’t know what “school” in September will look like, we look forward to working with your child(ren), and continuing to celebrate all that makes Monsignor Doyle an exciting learning community.

May the summer months grant you rest, peace and good health.

Sincerely,

Dan Hutter, Jamie Rodrigue and Lou Bellini
