Scholars are allowed to wear heavy jackets of any color or print within reason when outside, but inside they may ONLY wear navy cardigans or sweaters. Scholars may not wear the heavy jackets in the classroom or to weekly Mass. Scholars may wear navy sweaters and jackets in class. Scholars may wear long sleeve everyday red polos for everyday wear. They may wears long sleeve white oxford shirts on mass day. Any questions about the dress code please do not hesitate to ask.

Several scholars have missing jackets and sweaters. It is very easy to grab the wrong sweater since they are all uniform. Please check your scholars' dress items belongs to them. If not, please return to the school. Please write names in jackets and sweaters especially!

Please encourage grandparents, aunts and uncles to all link their cards to OLOF.
Big picture
The best defense to staying well this sniffle season is hand washing! Please talk to your scholars about proper hand washing as well. We sometimes take for granted that they are washing their hands properly and thoroughly so don't hesitate to do a refresher lesson!

J-Lo's Word

Dear Fatima Families,

November is one of my favorite months because it a gentle reminder to all of us to stop and asses all that we are Thankful for. My blessings are so beyond measure, and I have so much to be thankful for. But I would like to share with all of you how thankful I am for Fatima. This school, this campus, the teachers, the staff, the Parish, and you all--the families-- have become family to me. I pray each and every day that I can honor each of you the way I feel honored daily to be part of the Fatima family. What are you thankful for? WHO are you thankful for? I would challenge you this month to wake up each day and find someone to tell that you are thankful for them. We all need to hear it! As we come closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, please know how incredibly thankful I am for you! Have a blessed weekend!

Mrs. Lopez
