  • Dress Code Warnings-The dress code grace period is still in effect until October 8th, but students may receive a Dress Code Warning. If your scholar receives a warning, please note he/she is NOT in trouble….it really is just to let you and them know what needs to be fixed before our grace period ends. Mrs. Lopez will be strictly enforcing dress code after October 8th, so please refer to the handbook if you have any questions, especially about shoes, socks, jackets, and belts.

If you purchased a hamburger meal card, your scholar's teacher will hold the cards and punch the cards for each meal eaten. Your scholar's teacher will notify you once your scholar has punched 8 burgers so that you have time to purchase a new card. We do allow siblings to split cards as needed. Please make arrangements in the front office.

J-Lo's Word

Greetings Fatima Family,


Wow- what a week we have already had! On Tuesday we had an unexpected day off because of the weather. As hurricane season rears its tumultuous head, please be on the look out for school updates via IRIS, Facebook, and email. We will always do our best to keep you informed and updated as quickly as possible.


As we get further into the school year, I constantly remind my scholars what a blessing it is to be able to come to school, pray, and talk about Jesus. With that blessing comes the responsibility of emulating Him in all we do and say to the best of our human ability. Scholars are expected to treat each other with love, show respect,, and speak with kindness at all times. Anything less will not be permissible. Please support my efforts at home. These children have a whole life to battle outside forces--school should be a safe, warm place, full of Jesus, and full of love.


Please pray for our Archdiocese and our Church. Now more than ever, we need to stand strong in our faith and our Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray for our own Father Clint. And please know that your child's safety is always the utmost importance to us. We are adding new security features to our campus which we will tell you about very soon. Because of these new safety and security issues, please know that EVERY parent will always be asked and expected to follow school procedures for pick-up. drop-off, lunch visits, or being on campus. We know you will understand and support our efforts.


I continue to be humbled by the love and support of all my Fatima parents and family members. From the PTL, school board, parish members, and countless parent volunteers and supporters, it is truly easy to see how beautiful the Spirit is and flows on this campus. If I have never personally thanked you for all you do to support me, my family, and our campus, please let me say thank you now. I am very grateful and appreciative of each of you.


In His Love,

Mrs. Lopez
