Texas City Art Festival

Our Lady of Fatima has been entered into the Texas City Art Festival! Calling all Artist! Since we were just asked to join the festival this week, we wanted to send home the guidelines and registration form. You should have received that earlier this week! If not, please grab one Monday! Here are a few guidelines:

  • Art entries will be accepted from K-8th grade scholars (ages 5-18).
  • Each scholar can submit up to three pieces of art to be judged.
  • All artwork is due to the office or homeroom teachers no later than Friday, 4/5/19 at 3pm. Exceptions cannot be made for this, as this is a CITY deadline.
  • A registration form must be attached to each entry. If you need more copies please ask the front office or your homeroom teacher.
  • SOME class time will be allowed for art work after testing has been completed each day, but we encourage you to work with your scholars at home on this project.

Parent Survey

As we prepare for our next school year, we are asking that each parent complete a parent survey. This survey will only take 5-10 minutes, but the information you provide will help guide us as we grow. We look forward to hearing your honest feedback and please note, all survives are 100% anonymous. This survey will close on Sunday March 31, 2019.

Please click the link below to view and complete the survey.


Time for Testing

IOWA Testing is in a week. Grade level letters will go home Monday regarding grade specific tests. Testing days will be Wednesday-Friday, April 3-5 and Tuesday and Thursday, April 9th and 11th. Please make every effort to be here on testing days. Remember to eat a good breakfast and send a snack with your scholar to replenish brain power during breaks!

Lenten Meals

These meals are an annual fundraiser for OLOF. We have paired grade levels to volunteer and bring in desserts for each meal. There will be Sign Up Genius links sent out from your homeroom teacher for your assigned meal. This is a wonderful opportunity to complete your service hours for the year. Our opportunities to complete service hours for the year are limited.
